Sea Nymph Bass Attacker or Bass Tracker Pro 17

What I look at is which brand will sell best in my area when I get ready to let it go.

It is Tracker in my state...

What about buying the controls and cables for a Mercury 25? eBay?

Console

Thanks so much for all the ideas and especially the link. This will give me time and money to build a better boat than I could afford from the beginning. A few parts each month instead of financing an expensive rig. :)

Console

If i were to buy a 1648 aluminum boat.... (to save money now) could I add a console and steering wheel later?

Yes, I know about the upgraded motor and controls. I have a tiller motor and can use it for a while.

Have any of you done it?

Thanks

Rubber or Foam Flooring for Jon Boat

Tread plate aluminum... it will last longer than the boat. Rivet it down to the ribs.

Wide Jon Boats

I sold my 36" wide jon boat and have been searching for a 48" bottom boat.

They sure are hard to find these days, and very expensive too.

Is there any hope for this trailer with this boat?

I've replaced the tongue in several trailers to the length that fit the boat properly.

BIG Bluegill

I have a private place I fish in Alabama that is loaded with huge bluegills, and big bass too.

If any of you guys want to join me one day, it's all free and won't cost you a dime.

How about a trip trade? I love smallmouth bass fishing too.

Have tin boat.... will travel.

Welded Tin Boats...

I've owned boats for 50-years now and never owned an all-welded boat. I've enjoyed many rivet boats with good success. Not sure that I want to spend 3 or 4 times as much for a welded boat at my age. I can afford one, but who knows how long I will live. What's your opinion on rivet vs. welded boats? ...
