Back4more I have a question for you. I'm modifying my jon boat now and just got an aluminum frame put in it last week. I'm about to cut the plywood for the front. I'm just curious how you were able to cut the curve for the platform in the front to fit. I can't think of any way to do it except for measure every few inches and then connect the dots. Any help would be appreciated.

Put an oversized piece of cardboard on top of the boat and trace from the bottom. Then cut the cardboard in half lengthwise and overlap until you have a snug template to copy onto your deck material.

I cut open a large cardboard box, and cut it as needed so that it would fit in just right on the deck frame, then traced the cardboard outline on the plywood.

i only see one thing wrong with it

and it's not a problem i have, but a problem the man will have.

you need a tall light up front, the troller motor blocks the light to the port side.

Man I'm pretty sure your hull is the same as mine (mine is a 2004 Lowe L1436L) and your build puts mine to shame. Very nice work man, you should enjoy the heck out of that!
