Default Alumacraft 1436 Gigging Build

I just inherited a 1436 jon boat. It came with an old 9.5 johnson and ive spent alot of time workin on it, but it's got sentimental value, so i don't mind. It's never going to compare to some of the boat builds on here, but I figured I would post pictures of the project. The ultimate goal is to be painted black on the outside, light grey on the inside, with decks going from the front to the second bench and from the back bench to the transom. below the front deck, i'll have a hatch for a cooler and a custom flounder removal tool. Lights at the moment are going to be 5 LED's i posted on another thread, I'll be adding more as i go. I don't have a lot of money to throw in this one, but I found someone for scrap aluminum, so this will help plenty.

more progress, I don't even have access to an outdoor electrical outlet where I am, so the boat was sprayed with self etching primer, and rolled with rustoleum. It should hold up for a few years until i can get a little more established.

Default Motor

This johnson motor is 43 years old. And has been sitting a long time. I pulled apart the gearcase and nothing but rust came out of it. It took an hour just to break the screws on it.

I'll post some more pictures tomorrow, as soon as the motor is all back together. I had to replace the forward gear bearing, as well as the fuel pump and all the lines. Should be ready to go now.

No. The flats on west side of choctawhatchee bay are good on a falling tide. Check out the boat ramp at the end of walkedge off brooks st.. Good stuff around the especially when the head for the guf this fall. They filter out of the sound and are everywhere that time of year. Only have fished Cinco bayou at night. Good underwater lights on the docks but never really caught quality fish consistently there.
