I just got this 14 ft jon boat on craigs. It is a Rhyan craft, any one heard of these? I tryed to pull more info on it but haven't been able to find anything.

The sides are built up the way they are from the factory I am pretty sure as it is aluminum. What is the purpose of this? Does it help the boat float better? I have no clue.

Lastly, I want to deck this thing out. Should I go to the top where its already got the sides built up or should I go a little lower?

Any advice would be nice. Also if anyone knows anything about these boats please give me feedback. Thanks!

Nice looking boat! What is the bottom width? I like the way it is built up, but if your going to start over and plan a deck, I would go lower for sure. Nothing can roll off into the water that way.

I think the bottom width is 44 inches. I mesured at the back of the boat under the transome.

Nice boat! Looks like some fun mods are in store! These boats were made in AR. I did a quick search and came up with these links. Sorry I couldn't find more. You may also want to search Tinboats as I know there are a few members who own this make of boats.

So is this actually considered a jon boat?
