  1. Went to the marina to look at the new Alumicraft 205. Has a 225hp on it and Im gettin a new kicker mounted with all controls plus a bow mount. 35000$$$$$$$$$ Saved 10 grand in just the 225.(used) Cant wait for the ice to go bye bye!!!!!!!

    If you got it.......flout it.........so the saying goes. Wonder how much of that 4.00 a gallon gas that will use and x our fingers that it doesnt go to 5.00 per gal. Totally out of my league any more........ best to you, guy......go for it.
     
  4. Thanks CJ! Its got a 60 gal tank and from what I gather with fuel inj one isnt much diff than the other. I only use the big motor to get there. Then its all kicker. Thing isnt much different then Tiggers boat. Just a bit smaller.
