About this book
This comprehensive manual shows you how to go places and do things you never thought possible in a small outboard motorboat. A well-designed ruggedly built 17-footer, for instance, can fish offshore, circumnavigate Lake Superior, and crisscross the continent on inland waterways or on a trailer pulled by the family car. Small outboards are among the most versatile boats ever developed and are far more able than you might expect. Covered here are all the popular types--and some exciting alternatives as well as methods that may change your entire boating outlook. Aided by contributions from other experts, veteran outboard skipper David R. Getchell, Sr., offers a wealth of useful facts and special savvy that reveal for the first time in a single book the true potential of these democratic boats 20 feet and under. Here are the means to understand what can be done, and the way to do it safely, including: how to judge a boat's potential and capabilities based on design and construction; how to rebuild an older boat; how to handle a little boat in big seas, surf, or shallow water; how to navigate; how to read the weather; how to head upriver or offshore; how to trailer your boat; how to manage and equip it for camp cruising on a nearby lake or for subarctic exploration; and how to care for the boat and motor.

Development of a Safer Jon Boat

Creator: Peter Secrest | Aluminum boats - 1975

Volume I contains the results of performance tests of designs developed in this work plus additional designs developed elsewhere that were intended to meet the same criteria. (Author).

About this book
Conventional jon boats have stability and operational characteristics which make them inherently less safe than other recreational boats. Four boats are studied to determine static and dynamic stability, underway stability, and speed under power. Results are quantified by tests performed in a test tank and in the water. Test procedures used are presented in an appendix. Modifications are attempted to improve the stability and handling of two of the boats. These modifications consist of bilge keels to damp out rolling and foam pontoons to improve powering characteristics by altering the bottom shape. Results of these tests were used to design a second generation safe jon boat. This design incorporated floodable aluminum pontoons, open at the stern, providing the desirable bottom shape for planing with considerable improvement in transverse stability at rest due to the entrapped mass of water. The design is judge to not greatly increase cost or weight, keeping both these factors to less than 20% increase, and does not degrade any of the other desirable qualities of jon boats. Six hundred feet of documentary film clips are available from the Coast Guard R and D Center as a visual supplement to this report. A written narrative is included as Appendix C to this report. Volume I contains the results of performance tests of designs developed in this work plus additional designs developed elsewhere that were intended to meet the same criteria. (Author).

They are made of metal and not plastic.It solved my problem. I have used them every week canoeing at night and these lights have not let me down. I highly recommend these boat lights.

    Great backup for when you don't have power on your boat

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bright Eyes Green & Red Aluminum Portable Marine LED Boating Lights - Boat Bow or Stern Emergency Backup Safety Lights for Maximum Attention - Waterproof (Misc.) Great backup for my running lights, since I often don't have my battery charged. I use them on a 26 ft daysailor and so far they work great. They are a little small but they are very bright and for my purposes they are perfect. The straps work well. I haven't seen how long the battery lasts, however, so I can't comment on that.

    Great option for late night fishing on the kayak!

    5/5 Mark G. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bright Eyes Green & Red Aluminum Portable Marine LED Boating Lights - Boat Bow or Stern Emergency Backup Safety Lights for Maximum Attention - Waterproof (Misc.) I bought this with the sole purpose of having an emergency light for my fishing kayak, as an easy, quick deployable option man these lights are perfect. I don't intend to fish late much but knowing that I can and have an identifier like the red and green which is mandatory in my state is a real game changer at a reasonable price point. Extra batteries too. Not sure on the life span of the batteries but the extras give me more peace of mind Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 8, 2016

    get a small tube of silicon goop like they use around bathtubs

    I've been meaning to review this product for a while now but only recently took this picture. The product is the answer for people who don't want to need or have help launching their boat. There's really no need of the boat ever grating over rocks or sand on a beach with these. I mounted the brackets at a slight angle. Vertical will invite the boat to roll over on uneven ground. Not too much, though, or the wheels will drag on their sides. I held the brackets in place and penciled circles to guide drilling. Go to the hardware store and ask the guy where the brad-point drills are. They make a clean hold with no splintering. While you're there, get a small tube of silicon goop like they use around bathtubs, carriage bolts and washers for each bolt and acorn nuts of appropriate thickness and length. All fasteners should be stainless steel. Get washers to fit over the square part of the bolt. Put the bolt through the bracket with the round head on the bracket side.

    Good for the price

    4/5 Winter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) Wheels kits such as this usually sell for twice the price and this one is well made. The only flaw is the use of inflatable wheels as the tubes will fail over time and are not something you can find at local stores and they need to be constantly refilled with air.The instructions call for using six 5/16" bolts to mount them with is excessive. Only four are needed to provide more than enough strength. A 5/16" bolt will withstand a shear load of over 4,000 lbs. and no one is going to use these wheels on a 16,000 lb. boat and motor setup.
