Its made of heavy guage aluminum, about 18' long, super wide and deep.
Its an open boat (runabout?) and all welded. No rivets.
I saw it at the gas station and the guys wife said it was a Jon boat.
I searched on the web but there isnt much.
Does anyone know where I can get more info?
-A jon boat is a type of boat, not a brand name. There can't be more than a
zillion manufacturers of aluminum jon boats. If it was welded, it was a
higher-end jon boat, since most are visibly riveted. In fact, I think only the

it represents an actual brand of boat or not. I've seen it spelled various

-I've heard the term Jon Boat used mostly to describe a boat just like
Robert described. Around here, the boats called "Jon boats" are, in
scale, shaped like the lid of a shoe box. Most are olive drab in color,
riveted sheet aluminum over light alum frame.
