You'll Save BIG On A Custom Bass Boat In More Ways Than One
With The "Jon Boat To Bass Boat" Book!
Available In:  Printed Book / Download / CD / Free Preview

Welcome To Bob Armentrout's Page!

The boat is a 2004 Lowe 1448 mod-V with a built in live-well
that I got new last year to replace my old Polar Kraft.

Front casting deck made of 5/8 ply, aluminum angle trusses to support front deck

Fear floor made of 5/8 ply, with treated 2x4 cut to contour of bottom

Side panels are an aluminum, with carpet glued over

Fabbed T/M bracket and spacers, T/M has outlet.

Fabbed aluminum spacer for the rear light socket

S/S seat bases and seat posts, with S/S pedestals

Pump in system for l/w (pump out/recirc/timer to be added soon)

Electrical system control panel

On board charger

Carpet is bass boat replacement carpet from BPS

Paint is Sherwin Williams automotive, over etching primer. 

Front cleats added (inside just below gunnel) rear to be added later

New Garmin sonar

Rear light mounts to back of rear seat, front on inside of hatch cover

Rear pedestal mounts on inside of l/w cover

All S/S fasteners

I was going to get a used trailer or build one, but I got a steal on this new, so the boat sits on a 2006 EZ Loader EZW12-14

The motor (just got it!) is a Johnson 25 hp and it moves me at over 30mph!


Many thanks to Bob for his pictures
and quality craftsmanship!
