Bob Guest's Custom 14" Lowe. Just a click on the boat will take you there:
- My modified 2006 grizzly 1648. The boat was bare bones when I took delivery. I modified it for all day/night fishing in the salt marsh rivers and creeks near Savannah, GA for speckled trout, redfish and flounder. The boat is electrified with a fish finder, nav lights, utility receptacle, And deck courtesy lights. The deck is non skid, sealed and self bailing. Two hard mounted 48qt igloo coolers with seat cushions. The forward cooler is equipped with a keep-alive aerator pump for keeping the bait lively and the aft cooler is for fish/ice/groceries. I installed a bimini top for rain or those hot summer days. Have pedestal seats fore and aft with 15" extensions. In the water it's as stable as a dock and very functional when fishing.Cleanup is quick and easy. Next comes the trolling motor. Enjoy
Bobby Armentrout - Jon Boat Mods

To make the decks, I added aluminum frame trusses (to support the deck). The deck is 5/8" plywood, with 3 coats of polyurethane, covered with standard issue bass-boat carpet. The motor is a 15 Evinrude, but I am getting a rebuilt 25 soon. I prefer the hand control T/M and fabbed a bracket with thick plastic blocks for the T/M to clamp onto. I put in an onboard charger and a livewell pump, but have not added a timer or recirc/pump out system yet, but they are coming, along with another seat mount and sonar for the rear, a S/S 12V power outlet, and some removable rod holders for crappie fishing. I will be adding another 3gal tank and cleats for the rear also. Obviously, I have not finished yet, and will be working on the boat when I am not fishing and at work. I've used this boat more than a dozen times since the end of January, when I got
