Aluminum continuous hinges for hatches. 1/2 the price as the brass plated steel (which will start rusting) from Lowes/Home Depot etc. 1/2 price more than covers shipping, especially on the 3 ft. lengths. Excellent service from these guys as well.

Just bought wheel bearing kits to redo my tilt-Dilly single axle trailer from etrailer.com. All bearings, races, seals, and cotter pins shipped to my house for under $25. Ordered it Sunday night and received an email that it shipped on Memorial Day!

Amazing carpet for the price... purchased the 6' x 20' and wish I got the 8'6" x 25' for my 14.5' build. Goes quick with all of the cuts and what not.

Bullet Pusher:
Here is a link to high-density polyurethane foam core composite board, which is a lighter weight substitute of marine grade plywood. Injected foam between two sheets of fiberglass. 4x8 sheet of 3/4" weighs 49# compared to 65# plywood. Expensive at $180 a sheet, but impervious to gas, oil, water and very strong, light weight, and rigid. Just needs to be painted to protect from UV light. Cuts with standard wood blades. Located in Grand Prairie, TX. (Between Dallas and Fort Worth)
They also do really thick custom transom pieces as well.

I just ordered a 12 oz. can of the "Lab Metal" to repair the dings and such on my flat bottom project that I have going on right now.

Airal:
I'm giving serious consideration to this stuff for my deck: https://www.lockdry.com/lockdrydemo.htm

Anybody had experience with it? Looks ideal for an aluminum boat floor.


Azslabber:
Here are some pretty cool floor matting for aluminum boats.A little expensive but very nice.

Azslabber:
I found these guys and am going to order some when I get my center bench cut out and closed off in the very near future.Take a look.

Seasprite:
I purchased my used 18 foot Jon boat and restoring this winter. Since it was a used boat it has seen its share of beaching. All my other boats are semi V's with nice thick keels and I wasn't concerned with beaching. The river I fish has poor launches at best (no docks) so you have to beach each time you go out. I'm a guide on the river so I'm always launching and removing. The 18 footer has 4 keels which are pretty worn. I searched the web for keel guards. A few companies wouldn't recommend using their product on a Jon boat. Until I found Keel Shield https://www.keelshield.com KS Marine Product
These people went out of their way to accommodate me. They sent me a sample of keel guards, and easy to follow instructions, great color selection, and its a life time guarantee. They also make skeg guards, bow guards. I highly recommend them, they stand behind their product!


Reedjj:
I came across this solar battery charger today looking for stuff for my boat.
Not sure if anyone has tried one of these, but it might be nice to have on those long days on the water when your trolling motor is getting a lot of use. You could just connect it to your batt. and as long as the sun is shining you are getting a little bit of a charge and not killing your battery!
