Ski231? did a great job modifying his old Mirrocraft into a very fishable boat. There was a thread on here with many pictures start to finish, but I can't find it anywhere using the search. Sorry. Anyone know where it's at?
Here's a couple crappy pics of my flatbottom I built. It was in sad shape when I got it. Someone in the past had even mounted 2 pedestal seats in it and drilled 4 holes for each right through the bottom of the boat! Idiots.
One pic shows what boat looks like with nothing in it. Hull was frozen and cracked in 2 spots and repaired solid. I fabricated removable floor and sidewall panels for it and added a center livewell unit, painted the outside olive drab, sidewall rod racks, fish finders front and back, anchormate, 4 rod holders, 2 pedestal seats, 4 anchor cleats, a small front deck for if I add a bowmount TM, running lights, 55lb transom trolling motor, and a backup 4 horse just in case. I want to add rope lights around the top under some J channel for night fishing. Also need a push pole (use my net now) and need a collapsible net to get it out of the way in the boat.
Nothing great but you can do a lot with little money if you have to. My favorite fishing partner likes it.
