I had a 15' jon boat that didn't have a middle seat and they hadn't done anything special to strengthen the sides. This was from the factory that way. I would recommend that you don't use a strap across the top of the boat to attach it to the trailer, which would tend to pull the sides in. Just use the front eye and the two back eyes to hold it on the trailer, if you use a trailer. Musky Glenn

I have a 17ft Aluminum open Jon boat with a tiller engine. I built it by converting an old Tracker Bass boat, ripping out the console ect in the middle. I also shortened the raised deck at the back by 2ft as I did not need livewells. I now have an 8ft lower deck. I have used this boat since 2006 with no problems whatsoever.
