1748 Mud Boat build

Postby JustinJ » Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:48 am

I just finsihed up the final touches on this boat yesterday evening. Plan to test run it Friday before turning it over to the guy I built it for.

The boat is a 17' x 4' all 1/8" one piece hull
Smooth bottom
2" x 2" longitudinal stringers
Flush notched in cross braces
full weld in floor/double bottom
4" catwalk guwales
5' front deck with dry storage
split rear operator seats both with dry storage.
trolling motor braket

It's being pushed by a stock 35 Pro Drive.

That thing looks sweet! If you dont mind me asking, what are you charging him? And also, what kinda load/rating are you getting on it?

I wish I had the equipment to do that. I love tinkering with my boat. :beer:

Good Job! :thumbsup:
