I'll try it.

I have fished out of it alot since I used to own a junk Mercury. Good boat, never lets us down. I want to hear Roadman cry when he sells it, It will be like a funneral. He'll miss it. Buy it, head to the lake and fish. This is a solid boat. It's got a tryed and true 50 Hp Johnson engine and lots of extras.

Looks like that boat has been well taken care of. Now, if I can just get the wife to see my point of view on how this would be a perfect first boat for me for a killer price, we may have a deal. I will keep you posted on my progress with the wife.

It's either been in the garage or under a tarp since I've had it. Got a several people interested. Got it in the front yard with a for sale sign on it should go soon. Just waiting on the cash. First one with the cash gets it..

A 12 foot 2.5 foot wide aluminum V bottom with 3 foot pedestal seats. Can you say a little unstable. I bought my new boat the next weekend. LOL
She was glad to get rid of my old one. NO I did'nt set her up, not me.

I have a friend down at Rocky Fork who says he can sell this boat easy for me. If anyone is interested let me know before I take it down there.

hi roadman, sent you a pm and a email

Hey Guys,

I really believe the boat is worth $1500. I may take it to Rocky Fork saturday morning,,

All I have to do is put my tackle back in the boat and go.. Motor hadn't run since last July.(changed jobs no time ) Started right up tonight.

This boat isn't new but it is always dry on the inside. It has a few bumps and bruises but it is still one heck of a boat. ^The hull design lets you walk around without the boat moving a lot loosing your balance.

When I bought the boat it didn't run. I replaced the power pack coils and stator in the ignition. I haven't had any trouble with the motor. I change the waterpump every three years. It should have one next year 2007. The boat registraton is still good till 2007.

The trailer is the easiest I have ever loaded. Drive on and hook the winch.

The trolling batteries are about 5 years old but have never been run down very far. They should be good for a while, I got them at Bass Pro Their better quality big batteries.

Bilge pump and areator work ,lights work, speedometer works runs about 28 mph with just me, don't know how accurate it is. 24 volt foot pedal trolling motor is pretty good (no trouble) have a spare for parts you can have. the starting battery is good maybe 2 years old.

roadman, do you know how much this weighs total?


03-15-2006, 12:57 PM
I am still working on the wife, but it doesn't look promising. I really would love to take the boat off your hands because I think it would make a great first boat for me. Good luck on selling it and I will for sure let you know if I can soften the wife's heart.

I'll try to get it weighed tomorrow. It's fiberglass heavier than alum. I pull it with a 2.8 v6 1985 Chevy S-10 Blazer. It's not real bad but it is all the blazer wants. Its kind of hard to stop with the blazer also. I had a 97 merc mountaineer before I traded it for a new car for the wife. It was 302 automatic and pulled it fine.

03-17-2006, 11:55 PM
i'm very interested, but with my VUE, I can only pull 1500 pounds, so I'm a little leary about that.... If you don't get it weighed, no problem. I'll see if I can do some research online. My guess is that fiberglass is going to be out of my weight class....

:( She's gone sold for 1500. :) Thanks for all the interest!!
