I got some more framing work done on the center rail, I also added two new thru hull fittings and bilge pumps, lastly i added a new transducer for my gps sounder unit & fishfinder unit.

As time has gone on, with my old jon boat I've realized the front aluminum of my 60's jon boat has gotten weak. It flexes when I hit any short of light chop, so I've decided it's time for a new jon boat. Any opinions of Lowe Jon boats? Let me know I'm thinking about getting a 15'8 either flat jon boat or leaning more towards the modified v in the same length. Anyone notice benefits to the modified v? I realize it's not going to cut waves apart but might make it easier then a flat jon boat's ride.
