Default A Jon boat journey - Life and times, and mods, of a G3 river Jon.

Been working on this for a few years. Thought I'd share some of the stuff I've done with both the trailer and the boat. I've still got a few more things and mods I want to do with the boat.


In the beginning, there was this home made trailer and G3-1648 hull.

The trailer was rough is an understatement. No light brackets ect. Someone had also tried to build up the transom on the hull for a mud motor. But did not do it correctly. Most of the welds were in the wrong location and broken. This is a short shaft transom. That I will build up for a long shaft motor. I plan to one day replace the transom completely with an all aluminum/metal transom.

Someone that was a good stick-welder did do a nice job putting this trailer frame together using pieces of scrap for gussets in the corners. It's not a tilt trailer. But really don't need one for this boat rig.

First order was to get the trailer in a good road worthy shape. Might as well go for broke.


The trailer came with some bolt-on guide-ons. I cut them and custom fit them for permanent fixture to the trailer frame.

All aluminum housing. One is a flood. The other a spot. Notice the lock to keep in place. Also allows me to remove them if I want . Also installed two 12volt sockets to plug the lights into, that can be used for other things as well. These were temporarly wire direct for testing. And have since received a cord with plug for the sockets.

While I was at it, I went ahead and rewired the boat. Then started building/fabbing this aluminum framed folding duck blind. The frame it's self weighs 8lbs total (less netting and grass).

Notice the transom cleaned up with previous alluminum removed, new wood flooring in the back, and battery. Also plumbed in the bilge pump and added some new 6ga trolling motor wiring.

Finely got a brand new 25hp E-tech motor. And did some proper transom mods to lift it up. It's ready for the water and test run. Got little over 29mph on the hand held GPS.


Here's the newly built up transom.

After a few runs, I found it difficult to get my fat old butt in and out of the boat. So I did another trailer mod to make life easier. Works great! I can step right on the the tailgate of my truck. And ever get my feet wet.

Here's a couple more things I did. The stern light would not stand straight up. So I fabbed a little piece of aluminum up and welded it so it would stand up straight.

I wanted to add a foot controlled trolling motor to the front cause the hand controlled about killed my back trying to use it. So I added this little spiff and put a Minn Kota Terrova with spot lock and I-link on the front.

My latest project(s) on this project has been for storage. As I've no place to keep boating stuffs like life jackets, emergency flares, flags, and spare goods all boaters need. I had been using a 48" x 20" plastic foot locker. But it was always getting in the way and was stuffed full. So I fabbed up these two lockers/boxes. The big one is big enough to hold several shotguns and/or all my extra gear. The smaller one on the starboard side is perfect as I've been able to move my depth finder from the bench seat to it's top making navigation much easier when I don't have to look away from forward to see what's on the Humingbird. Now I can look down and right back up. The lift/pull latches on top are lockable as well.


The contour on one side of each box matches the gunnel of each side of the boat so minimal space is lost.

Some of the other projects I am thinking about for this boat is a removable aluminum drop-in front deck for fishing. I've already purchased the frame material for it. I'm also considering adding some float-pods to the transom to lift it just a bit. As there are two batteries and gas tank in the back transom area. Plus the 186lb motor. I'll lose a little speed for them. But will have a safer mooring when anchored. One of the batteries will be moved up front for the drop-in deck when fishing. That should help a little.

Thanks Philip! It's nothing like it was when I got it. This may be my last boat, unless I find a bigger place to live. As this boat is about all I can have with this size yard/house/lot I have. Hoping to sell the house one day and move to a bigger place. Then I'll think about a bigger boat... Or more boats .

Can you post pics of how you got transducer on back of boat? Been reading they fall off regularly since there isn’t enough “meat” for screws to hang on to. Also trying to figure out a deck plan for my upcoming 1448 g3. Wanting a deck and a foot control trolling motor along with a fish finder. Maybe a small back platform too. Looks great!

I just use metal self tapping screws and screw into/through the metal. I also use some silicone sealer before screwing. This is my 7th boat. And have mounted sonar on everyone of mine. Never had a problem with knocking the transducer off unless the stern was running to shallow, as is the case with most folk who do knock them off. Or mounting in the wrong location where they will hit bunkboards when landing on a trailer. I also did structural warranty repair for Tracker Marine and several other metal boat mfgrs for a couple of years. Those are to two most common scenario for knocking them off. I've got transducers on both sides now. And no leaks.

Sweet update. I'm working on a tracker right now.

My favorites mods are the ladder and the duck blind. Do you weld aluminum?

That hitch mod is probably the best anti theft way to do it. Hard to haul away without a hitch!

I don't drill below the water line unless forced to. You can bolt it on or use 3m 5200 sealant. See pic below.

Really good work, I like the ladder you put on the trailer. You extended the tongue out enough where it wont hit the bumper of the truck on a tight turn?

Yes sir, it's plenty long enough. What's nice about it is, if I need a longer one to reach further out into the water (shallower water launch), I can make one as long as I need. So, if ya see a boat with a "20 foot tounge" trailer go-n down the highway, you know who's a pull-n it.

That's awesome! A lot of time and care went into that boat!

You thought about putting a lifeline and safety harness on that ladder? So when you fall you won't hurt yourself
