My wife got me a present because I am a good boy.
Yesterday I drove to the boat and ATV dealer to pick up the boat. It's only two minutes from our house.
When I came home with the boat one of the neighbors remarked, "It's not a fishing boat. I thought you're getting a fishing boat." I replied, "Yes it is a fishing boat, in the summer. In the winter it's a duck hunting boat."
I always liked Jon Boats because they are so versatile. In my opinion it's the perfect boat for the multi tasking outdoor person.
The Lowe L1436 is 14' long seats 3 people and loads 645 lb. The motor a Suzuki 10 horsepower four stroke will be delivered in a week or two. 10-horse power is all we can use on the lakes around here and is plenty power to push the boat.
Now all I have to do is to build a removable fishing platform on the bow with a swivel seat on a column and two comfortable seats at the stern end. In the winter the boat will be turned into a duck hunting blind featuring a full camouflage tent and a heater to keep me warm. My good neighbor, not the mouthy one, is welded the frame for that as I write this.
It is my second Jon Boat and I am as happy as can be. Oh, did I mention that I love my wife very much. First a rifle and now this boat.
