Wired up and mounted my light bar, it's only 20" but it's plenty bright. Easily shines 60-70 yards. Not too bad for a $33 amazon purchase. Still need to do a few other things to the boat before the 31st.

For $33 that's not bad at all. Got anymore pictures of your rig? What else are planning to do to it?

How does the quality of it look? Those things range from $30 to $200 so it's hard to know what you are paying for....or not.

I have an expensive one on my truck, a 36" that was a couple hundred bucks. They're 100 percent identical.

The one on your truck will last longer. I got a cheap 24" on my boat also. For the price I can afford to replace every couple years it's gonna get salty anyway

I want to take off the clip on red/green/white lights and put real ones on with a toggle switch, along with a bilge pump and a rear deck to hide my battery, life jackets ect. I had my light bar hooked up to just alligator clips but I didn't like hat very much so today I ran wire to a toggle switch by the back seat so I can control it from there. I also want to find a small trailer for it because taking the motor off and taking everything out to load it in the truck sucks.

Man that's a nice setup! Super simple, just how I like it. What kind of motor is that?

The engine is a harbor Freight 6.5 hp on one of the kits you can order online, I got the kit from a friend with an older engine for 100 bucks and just swapped it for a brand new one. I have less than 1k in the whole set up as it is.

And it drafts in 4 inches with 2 people, it's also more stable than my 1448 Jon boat was.

Very cool. Been reading for awhile, but first post and this thread is up my alley. Erichugh22 - I have same set up as yours, been running it for a couple years. Mine has some pontoons on the sides that make it more stable, but rob it of quite a bit of speed. Will post a pic later on. And I modified old john boat trailer, makes the on and off loading a lot easier.
