As far as cutting out an image goes, it's really more of a "choose what part you want and manually erase everything else" kinda deal. I just use the eraser tool and try to be careful. Believe me it takes some dedication and alot of patience...

Here's a link to the trolling motor bracket if anyone is interested in how I made it.

I used a standard clamp on troller and converted it to bow mount, it's still tiller steer, but I'm ok with that.

Actually, it's some of a whole pile of stuff I removed from the boat when I bought it. The previous owner had attempted to fab up a floor and some storage with aluminum angle, U, and sheet, but failed miserably in his execution. So I tore it out when I got the boat, but saved it because I figured I'd use at least some of it in my rebuild.

New photos of storage. Finally starting to look like my drawing. I think I'm going to make aluminum lids for the storage, still not sure though...

Such as: Any updated pictures of finished product?, How much was $$ was put into the boat with all the re-mod and stuff excluding price of boat,motor, and all that just wondering like on the structural work and stuff? Have ya taken it out to see how she runs and the stability and stuff? Just a few ?'s if you could help a fellow noob to the jon boat world out..lol
