New boat

Post  bassinmatt on Mon Jun 07, 2010 8:08 pm

Hey all, new here my name is Matt and iam 22 years old living in Maple Ridge.Really into river fishing as well as stillwaters fly fishing for 'bows.The past year I have gotten very into bass fishing.About two weeks ago I picked up a new G3 10 foot jon boat.I know its small but its all I need! I was wondering if anyone has done any customizing to a 10 foot jon? I would really like to get a deck on it for the days out bass fishing, and also for ease of fly fishing off of.Any insite in this would be great, I know it is stable enough for me to stand in as is but am wondering if the deck would make it any less/more stable? Thanks for your time!

The higher your center of gravity the more tippy it will be

Can be done, one of our ex-members Shane tricked his out quite nicely. He is with the Pacific boys now; you can reach him there. IF THEY WE LET YOU ON THEIR SITE, they tend exercise prejudice toward us.

I've a 14' LOWE jon-boat and I am just done building a platform with a pedestal seat and now work on the carpeted floor panels. Everything is removable because come fall that same boat is turned into a waterfowl boat. Smile On the first test run I found that the boat was a stable as ever despite the higher platform (higher center of gravity). I guess jon boats (flat hull) are more forgiving in that way than a V-hull boat.
