Hey Surf and Turf,

Thats a nice boat at a good price. If I were in the market for another boat I would buy it in a heartbeat. Man these people don't know a deal when they see one. Come on folks, don't miss out on this one....Goodluck my friend

Thanks Clyde!

I think the age has them scared, but just one look and that will change. The boat gets used probably 5-6 times a year and sits in the garage under cover the rest of the time. When I pull her out for the annual "first start" she starts on the 4th pull every time.

Someone will want to take a look and then........ :jawdrop:

Hey Surf and Turf,

I'm thinking that maybe the 9.9hp Yamaha is whats scareing them off. I use to have a 16' bassboat with a 10hp Merc. on her. The boat was no speed demon but it had no problem getting up on plane and would get you from point A to B at a good clip, nice little boat.

You might want to say something about how your Spectrum performs with that motor. I know it's a good deal and will get right along but others may not. Goodluck my friend and tightlines

Same thoughts here, that why I asked for an HP rating, and info on the 9.9. Trying to get an idea of what the 9.9 would sell for. I used to build custom Johnboats (just as a hobby for people I knew, and help pay for fishin stuff), with a 14 ft, after modifications and equipment, 2 people and their "stuff", a livewell/baitwell of water, that a 15 hp was lacking. I was running 25's on these. Now I have to admit, when I went Ringperch fishing in the winter, with nothing but a couple poles, minnow bucket, and a small cooler, that thing would fly, and chine walk on those tight bends:D

The 4-stroke 9.9 moves her alog quite well. An exact speed I could not tell you but I will take anyone who wishes to look at it out for a ride. It moves along at a pretty good clip with 2 people of course if you already weigh 400 lbs you might consider a whale boat instead. I'm 5'10" and weigh 190, my wife is 5'4" and weighs wet 105. We plane easily and quickly.

The boat is rated for 600 lbs or 4 people. I wouldn't want to fish with 4 in the boat, however. The max motor I beleive is 40 HP, but the Norfolk lakes where I use it are restricted to 12 hp now and were 10 Hp when I bought it. It is not an electric start although it has a charging circuit for the battery. Once this motor has been started the first time (generally 4 pulls) it starts on a half pull from then on.

If you live in Richmond I am 1.5 hours away from a nice ride! :D
