Re: Considering a boat.
Search CL for a used jon boat. I'm actually redoing a 1648 flat bottom jon for fishing rivers. I'm going to put aluminum framed casting decks on the front and rear, trolling motor on the bow and a small (15hp) outboard. Fall is the time to pick up a cheap boat and motor. Check out tinboats.net for ideas. Pretty incredible what they think up as far as mods go for little jon boats.
