My neighbor just spent $85,000 on a truck and 5th wheel trailer and went camping. I told him so far, his camping trip cost him $85,000. It will take him a lot of camping trips to amortize that truck and 5th wheel to less than staying in a four star hotel for those trips.
If your Jonboat only lasts 10 fishing trips, you've spent less than $10 per trip. Pretty hard to beat that! You could have spent 20 times the amount you did, but I'm not sure you would get the same per-trip cost out of the boat.

It's looking good for an under-$100 boat! On the Weekender, we used 3M 5200 sealant along the inside of the seams that are under water. It works really well to keep water out but is messy to work with. Are you using something like that, or PL construction glue, etc. for the bottom?
