Jon Boat Conversion

Recommended Posts

I have a G3 1548 (biggest boat I can get into Ocoee 3) that I want to do a lightweight conversion too.  I have looked at pix on Pinterest and watched YouTube vids, but need to know: where can I purchace aluminum stock and other supplys?  I am handy, but new to this.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've heard there was a business in the west knox industrial park (Lovell/dutchtown) that sold and cut any thickness of metal to anybody. I've never actually laid eyes on it though

I don't know where you are but I'd check with local welding shops for metal.

Best bet might a salvage yard. 

 

Google welding supply shops in your area.

 

Just had some work done on boat trailer at Baxley's Welding and Fabricating in White Pine.  Very good work and reasonable pricing.

There is a metal supply yard that will sell u anything/size u want. Not sure about aluminum.  It's on North National Drive in Knoxville. Can get a address if u need one.
