Build a Flat Bottom Jon Boat Plans
These plans are to build a flat bottom fishing jon boat.
Fisherman who like to work the
shallow backwaters and weed patches
on lakes and rivers will find this flat-bottom
scow-type boat an ideal craft.
the boat is only 12 ft. long, its wide, flat
bottom provides more usable space than
most round or V-bottom boats of similar
size. Low-cost, readily available materials
are used throughout.
deck beams, chine logs, seat stringers and
seat back are made of pine lumber. The
runners and chine moldings are solid oak.
AB-grade exterior plywood is used for the
deck, bottom and side planking and transom—
3/8-in. stock for the former and 3/4-in.
stock for the latter.
Fishing from this jon boat will be more rewarding since you built it yourself!
