Just finished my boat here are some pictures

Hope you guys enjoy these, I decided to repaint the boat and trailer to be camoed out in case I'd ever want to go duck hunting. Besides that it looks nicer and gives it something original. There is a motor for it also but I didn't put it on yet. (paints still pretty soft and everything)

Yeah I know, and I hope your right I hope it will be, I had a 10' flat bottom but it didn't have a trailer so that made it kinda crappy cause we had to load it in the bed of the truck, But we got there and made it through alright haha

Re: Just finished my boat here are some pictures

Looks great 7 point.
I have the same boat and it is a workhorse, crappies, to ducks to bone fishing it works great with a 5hp.

Some thoughts, older trailer looks like a TeeNee. You might want some 2x4 carpeted bunks on each side for a smooth boat ride. that metal winch cable might be replaced with a decent 25 foot rope, those old cables have burrs that will cut your hands quick.

The trail paint job is good, but I usually paint the rear cross member snow white. at night it catches the headlights and people can see it, especially on night interstate driving. Could add some plastic reflectors back on that cross beam. Unfortunately, in the boat trailering game, trailer lights fail, usually at night on the way home. Again reflectors work with the headlight beams, even if your lights ar ka-put.

Enjoy your new addition, nothing (maybe a yak) gives more boating pleasure than a John Boat.

Re: Just finished my boat here are some pictures

Nice rig wish you the best of luck with her. I also have a suggestion concerning the trailer. There appear to be four metal boat guide ons that are a little short. If your boat would hit one of those it could poke a hole through. You might be able to slide a few pieces of 2-inch plastic pvc pipe over them and bolt it thru and make the pvc pipe 3-4 inches longer than the metal pieces. Just a thought...
Stay safe on the water!
