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.
