(09/06/2001 - LEBANON, MO.) "Gator Tough." That's how the new jon boat packages are built by G3 Boats of Lebanon, Missouri. These four new models of multi-purpose jon boats start with an all welded .100-gauge hull with high strength one-piece extruded ribs, reinforced corner and transom braces and stamped-in keels and bow eyes. Gator tough -- for years of durability no matter what the conditions.

The Model 1860 package has a center console and measures 17'11" in length with an 80-inch beam. The bottom width is 60 inches wide and the sides are 24 inches deep. The Model 1860 is rated for a 90 horsepower Yamaha outboard.

The 16'10" Model 1756 is available in either center or side console and is rated for 70 horsepower. This model measures 77-inches at the beam, 56 inches across the bottom and 21 inches on the sides. The shortest package jon is the 15'10" Model 1652. This side console jon has a 71-inch beam, 52-inch bottom width and 21-inch side depth and is rated for 60 horsepower.

Standard features on all four packages include a durable enamel finish in desert brown, premium Zolatone non-skid floor, aerated livewells with camouflage covered pads, front deck storage compartment, trolling motor wiring and more. The console is positioned either in the boat's center or on the starboard side. The deluxe molded center consoles have a stainless grab rail. The side consoles are aluminum. Both consoles feature Yamaha controls and cables, windshield and a switch panel with master switch.

Each G3 package jon boat has a 6-gallon portable gas tank, bilge and lights and is delivered with a G3 custom, galvanized trailer. The trailers are equipped with dolly wheel, transom tie-downs, windguides and EZ lube bearing system.

All G3 boats are powered with dependable Yamaha outboard engines. Buyers of a G3 boat, motor and trailer package also receive the G3 advantage package that includes free resident fishing licenses for the buyer for three years.
