Lewis Boat Works: Custom Boat building and Plans
A 10 ft Flat-bottom Jon boat for Skinny water fishing.
Here's what the computer says it should look like. Its a pure, 100% Square Boat. Waterline is at 550lbs boat, people and gear. Boat should weigh about 90-100 lbs. Boat is shown on pictures pages.
Prototype boat weighs in at about 110 lbs but I overbuilt it.
I decided to create a set of building instructions so that one could select the boat features and building materials, and build their own custom boat and still have it be in the LilJon family. The picture above is just one result of a set of choices. Clicking on the picture will take you to a page that has a number of different versions of the LilJon boats.
