    well i got this from my uncle today and its in need of some work to say the lease, the old wood floor that someone put in is completly rotted out which i have some ideas on what to do for the new one, they put in a make shift livewell in the middle of the boat, dont know if it works, prob not. I also got a question, to mount driftmaster rod holders on this can i just use self drilling stainless screws or ? since it has a thick side i dont know. i get to clean his old car port up that fell down the other day, thats what all that crap is around the boat. for motor i havnt decided yet the two in the pic come with it but the one on it he said would be a pain to find parts for and the one laying on the ground supposely runs but who knows i might just use a good trolling motor to get around the river.

    A little tender love and care and a lot of elbow grease and you will be on the water fishing. Good luck on the project. Keep us updated on the work in progress.

    thank you, got some ideas off your pics, i still dont know how im going to mount rod holders on mine with it having a angle to it on the side but im prob over thinking it, i think if i get a 45angle holder, the little angle on the boat should still make the holder around where i want it. also since the sides like the way the are would it be strong enough if i did like driftmaster says, drill 3/16 holes and use 1/4 screws?
