    I was wondering if anyone knew or could recommend somewhere or someone who could make a floor for my boat? I have a 16' Polar Kraft jon boat and I'm really getting tired of stepping across those dadgum beams. I would really like to have a metal one and wasn't sure if any marine shop could do that or if I'd have to get it fabricated. I live in Conway and looking for somewhere fairly close.

    Southfork boats in Lonsdale. Just put a floor in my buddies. Even removed his middle bench seat and welded in two ribs.

    What did that run him? Just curious - never have found a jon boat setup like I wanted. I figure one day I'll just buy a hull and have a shop configure it the 'right' way, but figure it will be kinda expensive.

    Do you need to put supports between the ribs, or does the foam keep it from flexing enough to pull the rivets out? Been thinking about doing this to mine.
