Jet Jon Build #2

Post by SC Designs » 12 Jul 2016, 11:30

Ok, I have been real busy and haven't worked on the JetJon project in a couple of months. But this past weekend we got back on it. The boat its self had to have quite a bit of repair to the rivets to patch holes. But with that out of the way we were able to spray the Desert Tan T-Rex liner on and it turned out awesome. Once it dried we flipped the boat and bolted in the engine. We should be doing and engine test this weekend.

Here are some videos of the Jon running from yesterday. We still have to build the engine cowling and the inner side panels but over all she is a finished project.

Fantastic! Looks amazing! Out of curiosity how many hours would you estimate you've got into it at this point?

I would have to say I have around 70 to 80 hrs total. This one took more time due to the fact that I had to repair so many holes on the bottom of the boat.

Try window screening when making irregular shapes with fiberglass - gives a bit more uniform bend & has a little structure to it which makes the glassing process a bit easier so by the time you're bondo'ing you've got fewer low points to make sanding a b!tch.

I got the engine cowling finished. Sprayed it with the last bottle of T-Rex liner. It turned out great but after a day on the water we decided that it would look better if it matched the interior color so we changed the color to gray.

Well we got part of the polling platform already done mounted and painted. Still have to cut out the actual platform pad and bolt it down, I have a piece of 1/2" UHMW board that I am going to use for that. Here are the pics of it so far.
