I have tinkered with a lot of materials for making my own duck boat, but have finally concluded that Aluminum is the best material, being light, puncture proof and sufficiently stable. Similarly flat bottom design with 14 feet of length is ideal for river use. My latest boat is a 15 footer which planes with 4 persons and a 15 HP OBM. Max speed about 25 kms/hour. It can comfortably carry 6 persons. Any ideas?????????????

Azam Bhai... A flat based boat is basically more unstable than curved or keeled based boat but on the other hand it will increase weight and it ll be more difficult to drag it. so if u putting the weight of 4 person + 25 hp engine i ll and u need the speed of 25 km/hr i recommend at least of 30 degrees of keel if not going of 45 degrees.

sir your boat will float in jehlum river very nicelly.Water level has gone down.If you are planning a hunt,near khushab area,rangpur,i can join you, if invited?

Bluff bhai, as per my knowledge V shaped hulls or boats with deeper keels are required for operating in choppy water or big waves. In punjab our most shooting is done at rivers where the water is relatively calm but there is requirement to reach sndbars or pass through shallow water, so there is the need for flat bottom boats, these can float in 6 inches of water and plane very easily even with smaller engines, as far as stability of shooting platform is concerned, it is more a function of width vs length ratio, and a beam width of 56 inches or more provides plenty of stability.
Dr Malik Sahb: As per my report there is very little movement of ducks at Indus, Rangpur or Jhelum river. I wonder what is your reprt?

AoA Everybody

pardon my lack of boat building 101 but isnt Aluminum a bad idea considering aluminum corrodes (yes it does) and potential hazard due to constant contact with a metal which can conduct electicity. one more thing: somehow i'm thinking that the required sheet thickness (or gauge) would have to be substantially increased otherwise aluminum is relatively soft metal which would increase the total cost of the project. cant say about aluminum alloys.

Sir, my humble opinion (once again my apologies for my utter lack of knowledge on the subject) is that u should consider fiberglass, it floats, its light weight, its alot cheaper than a aluminum (or derivatives) and any water tank specialist or pre-fabricated roofing solution provider can pretty much make u anything u want.

just my two cents.

Regards.

Yes theoretically speaking, Aluminum corrodes, but rate of corrosion in fresh water is so slow as to make it negligible. As far as thickness of sheet is concerned, I have realized that 18 gauge or even 22 gauge Aluminum sheet is ideal if used as skin over ribs/stiffeners. This way the weight is kept so low as to make it the lightest boat for its size as compared to all others except inflatables. I have built six boats of different sizes since 1987, and none of these have so far ever suffered from corrosion or any other kind of wear and tear. Aluminum sheets are easily available, cheap and can be easily cut, bent, and welded.

Manj

aluminum only corrodes when it is connected to a metal which holds a higher rank in electo-chemical series than aluminum, i-e more reactive than aluminum:/ it is very suitable for boats, so corrosion is not an issue in it

Hi
I am new to the forum but have little experience of boat building. My vote is with “Plywood and Fiber glassing” with stitch and glue method. This is the simplest way of making a flat bottom Jon Boat. Locally made plywood is well enough for the project and you will find lots of designs on internet. Fiberglass cloth is also available locally and epoxy too. The weight of a 18 x 4 foot boat should come around 200 kg max and is enough for 4 persons for duck hunting with all decoy luggage. I am in the process of procuring martial for this size boat and my estimates are at 35000 rupees max. I have one v hull aluminum American made 19 footer boat the boat is 95% rivet made and 5% welded. Repairs to this boat are very expensive.
If you are planning to build one in aluminum you will lots of problem like
T-6 grade Aluminum, cutting, bending, riveting, welding etc. My vote is for Sticth and Glue Plywood with Fiber glassing on it boat,,,, no corrosion,,,,

Dear Azam Agha AOA. I have been watching this thread.
While building your own solutions shows creativity, but some time re-inventing a wheel, for project management perspective is not cost and risk justified. I am sure procuring marine grade aluminum alloy in Pakistan will be pain in the neck, if not impossible. I am sure you guys have looked at the options like what is already available in local market.
Also, since all major vendors like tracker boats are present in Dubai, importing one from Dubai is logistically possible as well cheap compare to from the US.

@Azam Agha .. sir great boating passion that you have. Can you give any approximate guess what wd a 5-man aluminium boat (capacity to carry weight of 1125 lbs) with the following shape cost in today's times? ... assuming we forget fancy details and concentrate on bare required essentials for watefowl shooting. And what horsepower OBM would be suitable best (& its max OBM rating?) .... How would that compare with a similar capacity 10 footer fiberglass boat (weight of boat approx 100 kg incl wooden benches two installed). Can you throw some light on the comparison in between the two types of boats ... the latter one in fiberglass is owned by me? Does a fiberglass boat (such as this) offer better advantage in rivers or aluminium ones like the Jon boat duck hunting design here. Will appreciate your detailed response. Regards.

great work,normally we hunt in peak winter so we are required small boat,when the river,s water level very lowest,so small boat idea is most succesfull and ecnomically will be fit for many hunters and carring .lifting,handling is more easy.also should be made localy.

@Arslan_tareen, brother sorry for replying late. I had not gone thru this topic for a while. It cost me about Rs55000 after discounts and I had the trailer made from a local steel mnfc who had made a few boat trailers in past and supplied to irrigation and wapda depts ... He charged me Rs.25000 for the trailer. But the main issue is OBM which has skyrocketed in these days from Rs.70000 (8HP brand new) when I bought it in 1998 to Rs.150,000 plus now in March 2011.

The problem back home is lack of boat launch ramps so what one needs is a light boat. Jon (aluminium) boat may be the best design with tiller outboard? Mudbuddy style air cooled engine is the best solution and any peter engine can be easily converted with a prop?? Boats in Tarbela use the engines???
Inflatables are good alternate but inflating and deflating in cold weather as experienced in Canada was very hard to manage. Even windy conditions in stormy conditions make it impossible to handle unless there is a powerful outboard which again be heavy to lift?

francolino
25-08-2012, 06:01 AM
Inflatables are toy boats basically (so to say) .... and dangerous for duck shooting. Only certain types are approved for waterfowling not the 'softees' above.

Secondly, inflating and deflating a 4-6 man boat is impossible in field when time is short and portability is also needed within a time frame. Trailers - either with aluminium or fb glass boats or inflatable dinghies (rigid inflatables, called RIBs) - are needed for these three types. For ducks, minimum 4-6 man boat is required for 1 guide 3 guns.... or 2 guides and 4 guns spread at two different locations.

Also, I have come to know that a peter engine can be easily used on a fiberglass or alumimium boat just like hunters sometimes use 'machuas' (small canoes wooden) fitted with such econo boat engines. Advantage is: Portability during travel in 4x4s, and any local fisherman with minimum basic knowledge of rowing and peter engines can use and steer them for retrieving ducks and rowing to blinds etc... and that too at a nominal fuel expenditure, unlike OBM's consumption (4 litres petrol per hour for 8HP engine if brand new).

Does anyone know where good quality new peter engines and shafts can be bought/made ..and their fittings for fiberglass or aluminium boats be made too?

A flat bottom jon boat which can be a truck or SUV topper with mudbuddy engine or modified Peter engine is the answer as there are no boat launch ramps as I know is the solution.
A deep cycle battery driven trawling motor also lasts a shoot here in Canada?

Masroor bro thanks. Good info. I will take your tips on purchasing Peter Engine and the shaft/propeller. Someone told me that the best market to look for these engines is Brandreth Rd market Lhr.

Yes Samad boats are really good and very stable for turbulent waters but.....very costly now. Earlier I bought one for Rs10,500 (5 man model, smallest one) and used it extensively. Later on a friend also bought same and we both used that in exclusive hunting areas with some fabulous duck shooting.
http://i1225.photobucket.com/albums/ee387/Francolino/19022010003.jpg

But now it is very costly; the smaller size has been discontinued and the larger one is not practical for duck shooting and phenominally expensive now. Also, trailer needs to be made with it, to transport it to river beds....I then wonder whats the difference bw that and other fiberglass or aluminium models? Latter are much economical and puncture proof of course too. One can dump steel duck stools, mojo rods, sharp objects, decoys, anything in the fiberglass/aluminium ones, but the inflatable types such as Samad or the ones they are copied from (Avon, Quicksilver, Zodiak etc) get puncture after one or two shoots. Then, the rubber has a certain life and makes an expensive purchase less feasible.

My votes for any aluminium or fiberglass flat bottom boat having good gear and persons capacity. This is one of my recent flat bottom boats and still in use occassionally as required, depending on water situation.....this picture is before I picked it from the works site and was there for paint touch up instructions to the foreman seen in pic:

10-09-2012, 09:00 AM
@suuch_baat, bro imported models are mostly made in aluminium, and here its not so. Here they are made in steel mostly which in any case is heavy, much heavier. Problem with steel is that the towing vehicle just has to be strong enough with a powerful 4x4 to tag it along thru mud and sand near rivers. Aluminium is ideal but not available here. As far as design issue is concerned, any imported picture from net can be copied and modified for the particular boat design, but one critical aspect is ...the height of tyres in trailer has to be equal to those in 4x4 vehicle, and the trailer horizontal to the ground when travelling. This minimizes drag and the vehicle goes effortless on roads. I have done so successfully too.

I find this tyre height issue with this trailer above,,,,rest seems OK IMO. Its a big trailer and a big boat. Good for a large group or when making multiples blinds.

This trailer has no protection:
1. boat to slide forward and hit the towing vehicle
2. No side falling protection
3. No hitch/ball mechanism, class and size varies with load
4. Tire size is lesser issue, it will work
5. No brake lights/indicator
6. Double chain protection with steel wire to avoid falling off on the road
7. Shorter in size trailer
If you can appreciate what it means it can fabricated very cheap on this trailer and towable with any 1000cc sedan car with hitch ??

I have been there my young brother from Gujrat but experience in these toys matters and learning process must go on to make the outdoor sports safe and enjoyable irrespective of distance be it 25KM or 2000KM. After towing boats for thousands of miles, the learning in boating/fishing/hunting is ON everyday!

Actually when i took these pictures boat was not properly Wired. You can see On the Side of Boat and Trailer There Are Hooks To Rope Both things Together. Yes We miss Back Lights , We will Mange it. Thanks For your So Keen Interest and Nice Valuable Suggestions.

T6 aluminum is available in Karachi, I had a small experience with it when making a quadrotor just for the fun of it.. The smaller boats RC grade were also made and learned a LOT about dynamics. IMHO Aluminum will go a LONG way and there are many things that you can do with it to make it tougher.. The other option (though costly) is Kevlar braided cloth mixed with resin to make it sturdy supported by the Plywood with riveting is better..
Fiber glass will need a basic form made out as a die.. and then it will be just reproduction fast and easily.
