dukhntr Posted August 23, 2012 Share Posted August 23, 2012 I have acquired a 14x42 jon boat (free!). When I removed the wood floor, I found several broken ribs. They had been previously repaired, and broke in the same place. I need to figure out how best to repair this. I plan on using this boat for duck hunting on larger marshes and rivers, so there is a good possibility of deadheads and the like, so I want a strong repair. I thought having the rib welded,(again) and then putting a piece of 2x4 channel (aluminum) over the rib and bolting through the rib and floor. Any other ideas?Thanks for any help. dukhntr Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
