MID 1980'S 14 FOOT SMOKERCRAFT BIG FISHERMAN

Looks good! What are your plans? I used Gluvit on my boat and it worked great. You don't want to use treated because it will interact badly with the aluminum over time. Just buy some wood sealer or you can fiberglass it.

1962 Elgin 14ft First Time Build

Looks good! Keep it going! I built the floor so it sits above the ribs on the boat, and sits in the small lip around the sides of the inside wall. I'm wondering if maybe this makes the center floor too high from the bottom of the boat? If it feels solid when you walk on it, it should be ok. If not y...

12' Alumacraft (V-hull) Build To Bass Boat

Hey so it's been awhile and I wanted to post pictures of the updated rig! The newest addition is on the sides. They are called Sponsons. Two 9 foot pieces of ethafoam on the sides. They have made a huge difference! Worth every penny! The boat is more stable, I don't get splashed by waves, and my spe...

12' Alumacraft (V-hull) Build To Bass Boat (Again!)

Before I put the self etching primer on I wiped the entire boat down with acetone to get it clean. I think that's really important. Probably put 2 or 3 coats of self etching primer on. Then just used black spray paint and then I put a a few coats of clear coat over it. The paint job still looks grea...

12' Alumacraft (V-hull) Build (Again!)

The boat fishes great! Wouldn't change a thing. In the pics I forgot to put on my trolling motor. I have one that attaches to the front. Things I'm going to do this winter is add a fish finder. And repaint the trailer (it's looking pretty rough). I need to rebuild the carb on the motor too. It ran g...
