Those 6-packs work pretty good.

Old thread but that is a great job! Been thinking about doing something similar myself if I can ever find a cheap REGISTERED jon. You have any more pics of the framing? How much you think it weighs?

havent looked here in a bit, as far as weight its pretty heavy it deffinetly needs a bigger motor right now it has a 25 hp, i think 40 hp would make it a bit better, i dont have any pics of the frame work really, the only framing i did was the rod storage on the side and the front deck, the flooring is screwed to the cross member on the floor, i probably wont be adding a bigger motor for another year most of the lakes i fish are kind of small. i used 3/4 treated on the flooring and 3/8 treated on the rod storage.
