Default Where are all the Jon boats?

I went to buy a 14’ Jon boat this fall for duck hunting and none were in stock and when I told the dealers I’d like to order one none would actually order it. They didn’t even call me back. I don’t mind waiting to get one built but seems it’s not worth their time. My buddy ended up selling me his late fathers 12’ Jon boat and trailer for $300 but still might get something bigger of I can find one. Can’t wait till all this covid Bologna is behind us.

Check with Bass Pro Shops...They seem to always have 14-16 ft Jon boats on hand.

Cabelas and bass pro were the first places I checked, pre Covid they always had a stack of them. I may just build a wooden duck skiff, I’ve built a couple over the years.
