Flips Jon boat modification

Post by Flip » 08 Apr 2012, 10:50

Bought the boat in 2010 as a 2009 left over. Did a full modification with two tone paint. Red on the outside to match my truck with metalic silver on the inside with 2 coats of clear coat. Framed out entire boat with 1x1's. It has long rod / oar storage compartment , life jacket compartment , anchor compartment , build in cooler & tackle box compartment. A total of 7 storage areas leaving the boat completely free of any loose items laying on top deck or inside lower floor area. I have never owned a jon or bass boat & I have never done anything like this in my life before. I was shocked how well it turned out. I added on board charger for 2 batteries a 60 amp breaker. Trolling motor plugs into front deck receptical. Would love to get some comments. I have really enjoyed seeing all the mods on this site. I'm in heaven. Didnt even know they had sites like this until last week when I was doing some surfing.

Sweet Boat, Very nice job. You should be proud of what you have done.

Looks great! How did you attach your 1x1s to the side of your boat?

What kind of paint did you use, and how did you apply it. I'm about to paint my 1648, and trying to get some ideas.

Professional looking mod... like the bold paint job
The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

How did your rod locker turn out? did you put hooks in it or do you just lay your rods in
