I bought this boat last year and have been working on it a little along as I scronge up or buy parts, its been all over that Texas Hunting Forum, I just figured you guys would like to see it...... So far I have a 14 foot aluminum Delhi jon boat and a moody tilt trailer. (I could go and build this thing to the hilt anytime I got ready but I just want to prove what you can do "on the cheap")....I bought the boat for $75 and on the same day a buddy of mine gave me a trailer to go with it. I have removed some really nasty looking side bunks and bracing from the tralier and reinforced the corners, added tie down brackets at the back. Replace the main bunks and the carpet and added some bunks to make it an aluminum boat trailer. Replaced the trailer hitch, and today I replaced the transom which I made from two old discarded highway signs I was given by a friend that works in highway construction.....

Still got to get that kicker brace welded in too. I had to remove the rivets to get it out....I started to bolt it back to the floor then I though about the stumps and logs this thing is going to be crossing and figured if I welded the brace in place and welded up the holes it would make it a lot tougher........Eventually it will have one of these strapped on the back of it.......

There in lies the problem....the water isn't ready for the boat....the duck hunting section of the WMA I live on is high and dry right now so I haven't really been in a big hurry to finish it.....
