8' Jon Boat


We've been building wooden boats and kits for the fisherman since 1983. Our primary boat has been the McKenzie River Driftboat, a popular boat for fishing whitewater rivers. You can visit our McKenzie Driftboat home page to see these boats and all sorts of accessories at www.gregboats.com. E-mail us at woodn@gregboats.com.

In the last few years, waterfoul hunting has captured my attention during our rainy winters here in Oregon. I still can't believe I enjoy getting up hours before sunrise, then spending hours sitting in a cold, rainy duck blind with a buddy and a smelly, wet (but happy) retriever. In any case, I think many of our current boat models would work well for duck hunting. Many hunters in this area float the local rivers for ducks and geese in driftboats. Our rowboats work well for setting up in still waters, such as lakes and ponds.

I've just designed a light plywood jon boat, the first boat I've designed mainly for duck hunting. It's inexpensive, easy to build and can be easily shipped in kit form. We're jumping the "gun" a little because we haven't fixed on a price yet, but keep this page in your sights for the next few weeks. We should have more of that sort of information soon. Here are some photos of the boat in progress. It is an eight footer, with twelve inch sides, and a thirty four inch bottom width. Our plan is to offer it in longer lengths too, in roughly two foot increments. The longer the boat, the more the boat would take a small, light motor.
