i also have a 1972 v boat. will trade or sell this boat has a 72 johnson that runs fine i have had it out several times this year already. just a bit to big for what i want. 850 obo on this boat also. has camo seats new floor and set up for cattn. also has a 586c humminbird fish finder that goes with it. to be honest to my usca brothers the fish finder cost me 359 dollars plus tax and i paid 600 for the boat. im takn a loss at 850 on this guys but its an old boat. it does great on the water. has cable steering and that is one of the factors that i dont like. the finder is only maybe 4 months old. great deal for the right person.
