1995 F&F all welded jon boat with a 1995 Yamaha jet drive outboard. Brought her home in June 2007 for $1500. Probably never will find a better deal then that in my lifetime. :D

How well does that jet push you? I have been looking into a jet for the Etowah below the little spillover dam, and above the main lake. It is a pretty rough river, so most guys that run it ('specially the lower end) put the UHMW plastic on the bottom of the hull, and exceed the max hp to get out of the hole quicker.

What kind of hole shot you have with that?

Hi all, I am new to the site. Here are a few pics of the boat I reciently finished building from scratch. It is 24' long and 102" wide (the widest I can legally haul down the road). I have a Suzuki DT140 hanging on it. the sub floor is completely sealed from underneath so that nothing can get under it (Fish oil in particullar. I built the boat to use commercial fishing.) The sides, floor, and deck are 1/8" aluminum and the bottom is 3/16". the deck is also sealed and drains off to the side so that any water that comes in while pulling nets will go back out rather than stay in the boat.

Any other questions, feel free to ask.

I am working on getting my pics to load. In the mean time, they can be seen at http://www.SparksCustomBoats.com

Nice. What welding machine are you using? Looks to be some sort of Lincoln MIG with a spool gun.

I take it that you build these to sell, from that website? You do it full time, or part time?

Thank you. Yes, it is a Lincoln 175HD with a spool gun. Lincoln says that you cannot run a spool gun on this machine, but you can with minor modification. I built this one for my own personal use but would like to be building them as a side job. In March I am ordering aluminum to build an 18' with a 60" floor to sell. More to test the market a bit and to get another boat out there with my name on it.

Brad

Nice job. Building your own boat from scratch must be awesome and I'm sure you will appreciate it more. Very cool. =D>
