My Jon Project

I am not sure where the handles came from, but I seem to remember them coming from a casket. I have a long time family friend who is the county coroner. Even have a body bag for moving deer in. This boat sees minimal time on the water. It is just my river boat, and then just during low water levels ...

My Jon Project

What I did here for the cubby under the back seat was to use a 2x4 and just screw it into the bottom decking. Worked out pretty easy that way.

Anchor mate

And I want to see more pictures of that boat conversion! Reminds me a lot of mine.
I have the conversion posted already. Should be about fourth down in the list right now.

I have the same boat with a 3.5HP motor. May I ask how wobbly that thing is out on the water? I have been wanting to make a platform up front, but figured it wouldn't be too sturdy. Daniel It isn't too wobbly at all, but I don't have a front deck chair and I am not sure how wobbly that would make it.

I have converted my 12 foot jon already. http://indiananature.com/images/2012/BoatRebuild/BoatRebuild0019.jpg http://indiananature.com/images/2012/BoatRebuild/BoatRebuild0032.jpg I am adding an anchor mate with a 15 pound river anchor to the front of this boat. With the lip of the boat, it is going ...

Weather got warm enough to finish the project long before I got to it. January I gutted two rooms in the basement and turned it into a 31 feet long man cave. I did get the jon finished though.

Thanks everyone. I got some carpet and vinyl samples coming in the mail. This begs my next question. Shopping around I found some Minwax that runs 45 bucks a gallon. Was told it is the best sealant for boat decking. Now the adhesive for putting down either the carpet or vinyl flooring says to go on ...

Now the adhesive for putting down either the carpet or vinyl flooring says to go on a clean surface, no oils etc. How would this sealer affect the adhesive?

Can anyone tell me how hard the vinyl is to work with?

What about kind of carpet to pick up?

You have me very interested in this stuff. Interested to know more. Ease to work with? Glue it down, but even underneath when you wrap it under the deck? Does the adhesive hold well on the wrap. What about wrapping corners like on an opening or door?

Would repel water better than carpet.

Might have time to worry about this as cold weather is approaching and I assume sealer has a temperature requirement for best applying it. Why do you even want carpet in a fishing boat? It won't stay nice and it'll get stained. It will help deaden the sound, and it will look nicer than just the ply...

It isn't completed yet, so I hope this is okay that I post the WIP here.

Garage kept and will only see light action on a small river near my house. Finding that this is the biggest question as to what to do for the boat I have found. What kind of carpet, and how to attach to the decking. I will be sealing the deck as soon as I figure out what kind of sealer will work bes...

Have been looking at all the wonderful rebuilds and I am just amazed at all the cool stuff everyone has done. I am currently working on mine and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a carpet and the adhesive for it? I would like some that is easy to work with bending and folding and al...
