The boat is a 1232 Lowe Jon Boat. It’s twelve feet long and it has a 7 1/2 hp Mercury outboard. It also has a Minn Kota Endura Max 55# thrust trolling motor. The trailer was like new and the price was right so I went ahead and joined the boater’s club.
I had launched a friend’s boat a few times but never my own. Being a light boat makes this a good learning vessel for me. I was so intent on putting the boat back on the trailer myself that I forgot to film it. I drove it up a bit crooked, but was able to just lift and pull it a bit and I got it pretty much on the first shot.
I look forward to making some mods to this little boat. Not nearly as much as my kayak perhaps, and I don’t plan on getting rid of the kayak by any means, but it feels like I might grow to like having this small Jon boat.
Keep an eye out for future videos starring the ‘Kon Tiki 2’
Thanks for watching!
