So I bought this aluminum flat bottom jb off craigslist recently. I'm pretty excited about tearing it apart, repairing some minor things and getting on the water. I've never owned a boat before, and actually have no clue what I'm doing. But this site has helped guide me infinitely, so thanks everyone.

Full restoration pics to follow

Nice size john boat you got. When replacing any wood make sure you do not put any pressure treated wood in there. Its not friendly to aluminum! use good exterior grade sealed with Spar or other means!
