I picked up this old john boat and set out to build a bass boat . I Am at 540$ in boat trailer and all materials . It is a 1976 starcraft. Great shape got it for spare change and started the process. Slept on a design put it on paper. Then measured twice cut once. Results......

Ride is great . A little wobly . But I distributed the weight with three deep cycle batterys , center mass been out in some ruff winds today in temecula ca . It did great better than I thought . I mourned a Minn kota 36 pnd thrust it moves quick. I'm shopping for a 4 stroke hand tiller like 10 to 20 HP . Very easily stand and fish in it all day. And take it were I wouldn't take a real bass boat
