Default Need ideas for a boat

I am thinking of saving up my money to buy an old flat bottom jon boat. I am going to work on it. Do any of you have any good ideas on what to do to it. I am kind of low on the money part though.

building a jon boat is fun and fairly easy and inexpensive. don lead oyu in the right direction. plywood and some sweat and tears and blood.... you can get a nice rig done.
