i have recently got . a 10 foot sears flatt bottom jon boat.and i cant seem to find any info on it. this is my first boat. i'm trying to find the max load for it . and what size trolling motor. i fish small rivers and deep gravle pits . and other small lakes . depths still unknown to me. i know the river is shallow around here in vandalia ohio. also not sure what size batterie to get . when i do buy a motor. i want decently bright lights for night fishing. in a well lite area. depth finder and motor. and want to be able to stay out 10 hours if i wanted to . with enough power to get home. i am really concerned about to much weight in the boat. i 'm close to 220 or more . pluse gear. i might not have thought it through when i bought it . but it was only 150 . and money's tight . any tips or info would be great.
