16-Foot Aluminum SmokerCraft Jon Boat, 1974 White Water (WWR-1) Model, with a Trailer. Boat looks rough and is a project boat, but all it needs is a new transom and plywood decking and a pedestal seat. And perhaps a paint job. This is a durable, rugged, tough boat that was designed for rough waters and tough conditions. Trailer is titled but requires current registration. In the event you’re not familiar with SOA boat registration laws, only boats longer than 24-feet require a title. It’s built like a skiff, with a riveted hull and deep sides (24-inches from top to bottom/deck) and a wide deck that is unobstructed (48-inches wide at the bottom; 70-inches wide at top of the gunwale), but has the flat-bottom of a jon-boat. Thus an excellent boat for dip netting and fishing rivers, lakes and sloughs. It's also been used for hunting.

Bow platform provides superior stability and strength for the boat, a seat bench is not necessary but can be installed with some plywood and doesn’t require drilling holes in the hull. Under the bow platform is a dry storage compartment. All of the ribs are secure. None of the rivets are compromised/ loose/ show any sign of mushrooming, nor any missing rivets. It has patchwork/ sealant on bottom (done by its previous owner after he skated it over a gravel bar). ADF&G was original owner. Both the boat and trailer are structurally sound and functional, and in good condition per their purpose (being put to use; seaworthy) once the transom is replaced. Whereas how it looks is moot. The only damage is cosmetic such as both corners at the stern and minor dings elsewhere,

Majority of the deck is 48-inches wide (narrows near the bow), thus very sturdy and stable when standing to cast, fight fish, use a dip net (1 to 3 dip netters) or just move about. Great on rivers and lakes, and extremely shallow creeks and sloughs. It’s ideal for dipnetting due to open floor space and deep gunwales.

Motor wise, your options are whatever you wish. This boat has had a jet unit, prop outboard motor, as well as having been operated just fine with a trolling motor, and via oars and push pole through sloughs up north.

Various scrap aluminum pieces are included and everything else that was on the boat prior to me removing the rotted out transom boards and beat-up stern trim at the corners. A trailer hitch with a ball is also included.

Why selling? I’m working a lot this summer and what little time I have available is going to be spent on the water with my son in his Wooldridge boat and fishing via canoe or raft. Zero desire to have to be at home on a bluebird day for even one day. I don't have any space for it in the garage thus when it rains I can't work on it. Last summer it rained every day that I had available and that sealed this boat's fate.

If desired I'll email specifically what is required for getting this boat on the water -- what work needs to be done, the required as well as optional rebuild projects, materials and supplies to buy, and what I planned to do.
