the 2 best days of your life
The day you buy your boat and the day you sell it.

IF the boat motor will crank up, it might be a good deal. If it doesn't run, be prepared to invest some $

Plenty of people call me up and ask if I'd like to haul away a "free" boat...NO THANK YOU I say! They strip off the motor & stuff they want to keep & think they can give the hull away. Had a guy call me a few yrs ago, wanting me to haul away a humongous boat up on jacks, it was longer than my house! I was gonna have to cut it up on site-cutting up fiberglass boats is tough work. I quoted him 6k & helped him up after he passed out

Misty River made nice aluminum boats in Manitoba (company is gone/merged/conglomerated to death), and a 40 HP Johnson engine is a good engine.

I think the combo is well worth what he's asking! I'd buy it. Does it come with a trailer? Even better.

Tell you what, buy it, and I'll buy it from you for $1550.

Inboard boats are money pits. Outboard boats are not. Evinrude/Johnson makes the most reliable motors ever built. I have a johnson 200 on by bass boat. It has 640 running hours on it. It has never cost me anything other then early spring spark plug and fuel filter changes.

Thanks, I now have to clean my keyboard off from the ice tea I spit all over it when I read your post.
