    How light is it? anything over 500lbs should be OK for a lake boat. There is really no difference between the two. Only minor changes. The bottoms are the same. Check out this site.

    can you walk on the deck without it making any creaking noise from it flexing? How much does it flex when you step on it, if you can without it breaking? How much does the boat flex if you lift up on one of the rear corners/transom? If it is a really light boat you will want to be careful while on the lake. If you hit choppy water or a big enough roller it can cause some serious damage not to mention if it crack or breaks it could sink. If it does flex a lot and you really want to keep this boat then you should take it to a good glass shop and have them reinforce it with core mat or even coremat and balsa. There seem to be many really light gullwings in the Midwest.

    jbn made some 350lbs to 375lb hulls i have 1 of them im going to build sounds just like your hull.mine is a jbn original jim youngblood hull.

    the difference if you look is all in the top cap,my brother has a jbx jimmy johnson hull outta vian oklahoma and the top cap is totally different.more rounded and arched up.the jbn top caps are alot flatter out front.other than that not alot of difference.hope this helps.travis

    If that is the case then I would definately be very cautious out on the lake. It sounds like it might weigh around 350 lbs. I have seen many like what you are describing and I had no problem lifting it off the trailer by myself. It will be fine, and fast, but just watch where you are going. If the water is choppy don't put it in the water. Just my opinion!

    Default Another Question

    Does it have an all fiberglass transom or is there plywood in there??? That will tell you a lot about the lay up.
