Just finished this conversion last week (Completed 05-22-2011). It is a 15 foot Meyer boat, really nice boat, wide and sturdy.

This is how she started off.

that looks great!

does all that wood add a ton of weight to the boat?

if ur a duck hunter than i recommend u look into a jon boat, probably a 1448 or bigger would be best. If ur set on a v hull then keep this in mind "Wider is better" look for something with a 50" beam or bigger.

Thats Really nice man! I like the bow mount, I have a similar boat and I need figure out how to get a bow mount motor on it when I build the deck. Great work!
