Ol Jon Boat Build

Recommended Posts

Picked up an old 1979 Delhi 1430 Jon Boat last week. Price was great for a project and included title... plan to get it water worthy & get to fishing with my sons. The trip to pick it up without a truck was fun to say the least...

 

My 7yo says we need to drop the 351 from my 78 F150 into it & build a speedboat... Atleast he has vision lol!!

 

Boat has been well used & has some scars from the rivers & being overloaded. I will be brazing the couple holes closed, checking all rivets for leaks, rebucking those that can, and replacing the others. Then sealing everything up with 3M 5200 Marine sealant. After that will follow a few coats of Wetlander Slick Bottom, and repaint the topside with a light color. I will also be building a new transom board, adding a 5hp outboard, trolling motor & fish/depth finder...

 

Previous owners added a make-shift compartment that I’ll use for battery storage & other storage.
