Still debating on what to do but i might consider looking around for a regular boat. It was fun though. I had a good time. I got a comment from someone in a kayak, "is this your first launch? It looks brand new" haha. i had to laugh but we did have a good time.

heres the video...

Got out yesterday. Had 2 people on the boat. 3 People on my buddies 1436 flat bottom. Went out for about 5 hours. My boat did alright. Was REALLY tippy and seems worse than an actual jon boat would be. I'm thinking some adjustments will be needed as well as a trailer due to the fact that it is heavy as H***. It took 4 of us to lift it. We saw quite a few carp but didnt get any. They didnt spawn fully yet but are starting to. I will post a link to the video from yesterday.

Well I haven't kept like complete track but lumber was about $150. Barrels were like $55 all together. Screws and all the other fasteners and stuff about $30. Paint was about $20. So far I have about $250 in it but I have at least $300 or so more dollars to put in it. I'll get some pics up ASAP.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. The boat is now painted and the barrels are sealed and attached. Taking it to the lake for some day time bow fishing with my buddies on Sunday. Then bringing it back home tearing it apart to get started painting the barrels and the top of the boat. Then get working on lights and such. I will be recording our whole trip so ill post the video link either Sunday night or Monday. CAN'T WAIT!!! :)
