Hello,
let me start by saying i have been looking around here for a few weeks now and there are truly a lot of great ideas here.
I grew up around jon boats on the little T and i have my granddad to think for that. So here is my jon and my thinking let me know what you all think good or bad.
Thanks

You are definitely heading in the right direction!

I like what you are doing. What size aluminum are you using for the flooring? (thickness)

It is thinn .0800 but at 50$ for a 4'x12' i think i got a good deal???????? but that is what the foam is for support. I had plywood i it and it did not hold up so i will try this.
In put is needed good or bad so let me know what you think

That looks great. Buying a "skin out" jon from the factory is a high $ option. Nice job on the seat mounts as well.

Qusackstackr
let me apologize about skin . i now understand what you were talking about. and it works for those of us that can't buy it all up front.I am just working on this as my PAY cheek will allowe. and that is not a lot. I am sure that in this day and age many can under stand that.YES it cost a lot. But in time it will be the way i want it.
