Any boat that floats with a decent trailer and engine is a good deal for $450 OBO.

Gotmud 05-09-2011 07:52 AM

^^ Exactly!! And if it runs I'd call it a smokin deal! The engine alone, even though old is worth more than that.

Powersledder 05-09-2011 09:31 AM

Gonna go pick it up tomorrow

Gotmud 05-09-2011 09:36 AM

Congrats! :beerchug:

cuzzinolaf 05-09-2011 04:55 PM

Mud and I get a small portion of the profit for our advice right?

Gotmud 05-10-2011 07:13 AM

^^ Agreed, $100 casino cash will keep my mouth shut.:poosy:

Got it home, needs a little cleaning but it's in really good shape.

top is a little short and kind of moldy (so I already took it off)
carpet needs to be replaced badly
needs some rewiring

Already has speakers
vinyl on the seats is still soft and pliable, no holes!
Everything seems to be on good working order
Roller bunk trailer

As others have mentioned - if the engine runs and the trailer is solid, you are in good shape for the price you paid. On a boat that age, no one expects the vinal to be solid - if it is, all the better. I think you nabbed a great deal.

Gotmud 05-11-2011 07:41 AM

Shit yeah, now Poser will be fishing instead of job hunting lol.:bitchdrama:

Well a $400 boat isn't going to be without issues. Having a little trouble getting spark right now.

Gotmud 05-11-2011 09:54 AM

$400, nice!!

blue avenger 05-14-2011 09:17 AM

you have a motor that has parts available at least. some of the old mercs have distributors that go bad and nothing you can get for them.

Powersledder 05-14-2011 11:47 PM

Found the spark problem, bad battery! Hooked up one of my other ones and she fired right up! This boat handles real nice, it's so light the ass end wants to skip across the water in hard turns. Topped her out in Lake Superior at 30mph. Fun boat.

How I got all of my crap from MI to MN, there was more in the box of my truck and this pic was taken after I already emptied some of it out.

Initial testing on a local inland lake to make sure it floats.

Out to the big water! After the winds died down the swells were only about 5' which this lil boat actually handled very well.

This is frickin' sweet Bill! :)

Now I just need to get the guy in the pictures to buy this boat, little worse condition and more expensive than mine though.:poosy:

Gotmud 05-17-2011 01:18 PM

WTF does he need to buy a boat for, he has you lol.

blue avenger 05-17-2011 02:26 PM

And the best day in a boaters life is when he sell it!! Different story for fishermen!!

Powersledder 06-12-2011 10:33 PM

Was a good day to be on the lake a few days ago.

Gotmud 06-13-2011 08:24 AM

Wow I wish our lakes looked like that lol. I'm jealous!:tantrum:

blue avenger 06-13-2011 09:01 AM

greasemonkey 06-13-2011 08:31 PM

Looks more like Island lake to me.

Powersledder 06-13-2011 08:59 PM
