    Finally getting around to the serious work on my 14' jon. Have had it for a few years, finally got the titling and registration done. Working on a 56 model 5hp outboard. Going to use the for fishing the river close to me that I can't get my big boat in. Have to wait until this afternoon to put some pics up.

    Got some pics done this morning, just an update, the 1956 Sea King 5hp runs pretty well, I need to clean the carb, a little fresh paint and it will be ready to go. Of course the cost of the motor almost broke me, $25. Price of the title and transfer was more than I paid for it.

    That 56 sea king is in pretty good shape for its age, boat will diffently work good for getting into those shallows.
