14' Valco deep v conversion COMPLETE w/ pics

Hopefully you're still alive and floating... :D How did you attach the wood stringers in the nose section? Any problems with the weight transferring to the floor on just the 2X4 uprights? Its hard to tell from the pictures, but the stringers in the nose are actually metal and I believe them to be f...

14' Valco deep v conversion COMPLETE w/ pics

Latest addition to the the boat...45lb thrust Minn Kota Edge bow mount with a custom made motor mount.

14' Valco deep v conversion COMPLETE w/ pics

Bought this 14' valco off a guy on craigslist for $300, it was a little rough when I got it, but the potential was endless. It is 14' 6" from stern to bow, and it has a 65" beam. I put about another $150 and a week of work into it and I think it came out looking pretty good. The boat does not leak a...

1432 sears jon boat simple conversion

I really like the boat mods! I recently did a flip for profit till I can save up for a much larger tin. I will say, if you're having trouble with the carpet not matching it's mainly probably because it's not running the same way, which will make the carpet look different colors. This coming from a ...

A conversion like you've never seen before...16' Performer

Really like what you did with this old ski boat. Like you said, there are plenty of them for sale and they are real cheap. I seriously thought about getting one and converting it to a bass boat but decided on a tin instead. Seeing this post makes me want to go ahead and try it. Any idea how much th...

Another 12' fiberglass Columbian tri hull Conversion

Converted another 12' columbian. This time it was for someone else, not for my own personal use. I used a color of carpet that ive never used before, it was kind of a beige color, turned out pretty nice. Check it out. https://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b311/sk8_or_bust/Boat%20projects/IMG_3816.jpg h...

11' Fiberglass tri hull Olympian Conversion

Another cool little fiberglass boat that I "converted" into a profit. 11' Olympian NOTE: All wood was treated and coated in a sealant before carpeting. https://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b311/sk8_or_bust/Boat%20projects/IMG_2122.jpg https://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b311/sk8_or_bust/Boat%20projects...
