Hi Ray,

The boat is a 14 ft. Lowe.  I made it this winter (burr, I live in Idaho)! I learned a lot. Everything on this boat is round not square! I wasted 2 sheets of plywood tearing things out. I left the seat in the back in and cut the top out of the front seat where the storage compartment is.

I had a transom mount trolling motor and bought a scissor mount on e-bay. actually e-bay is my best friend. The seat pedestals were only $19 each.

I don't have a lot in the boat 3 sheets of plywood. A gallon of spar varnish, screws, bilge. Check out the plastic hinges. .69 cents a foot. They are made for outdoor use. I glued foam on the bottom of the boat and the carpet makes it quiet. The rod lockers are great. I wish I had made them bigger. The curve of the boat takes out a lot of space. On the other side I have a set of oars and an anchor rope.

I used welding leads to power the electric motor. I have not wired the boat yet. I bought some heavy duty toggle switches on e-bay. 6 for $4.00 and they can handle 10 amps.

I've already changed the front pedestal to a higher one. For bass fishing you need one higher if you cast underhand.

I love the boat. Two people can stand up and fish quite comfortably.

The picture below is of the lure I designed. 

Thanks, Tony
