    Found this boat, trailer, new depth finder, and motor for only $350.00. Isn't much but price was right and will work for the type of areas I fish couldn't pass the deal up.

    Looks like a great buy.Real happy for ya.If it does what you want,and you are happy with it,it is as good as anything on the water.Take care of it and your grandchildren can take you fishing in it.peewee-williams ps,you will still find yourself pulling up to the bank and fishing off of it.Once it is in your blood,you cain;t help it.

    Thanks, me and [C]hris took it out the other night sprung a leak in the back . Looking around for a new motor also the one it has on it is older than I am think its called a sea king. Bought some stuff to plug the leak today got her all patched up. hope to get it all rigged up by next week.

    Definetly make a very good cat fishing rig outta that. But if you'd rather be bass fishing, why you want a cat fishing rig?

    looks Like You Got A Good Deal.i'm Sure Your Gonna Enjoy It.
    like Peewee Said Your Still Gonna Be Getting On The Bank. If Nothing Else Just To Strech Your Legs. They Do Get Cramped Up After Awhile Sitting In A Boat. Of Course Your A Lot Younger Than I Am.main Thing Is Take Care Of It And It Will Do You Good. Just Enjoy.

    Congrats on the new boat James, hope ya tear up the kitties with it. Cant beat it for the money. All it needs to do is float and it is a nice catfish boat.

    That boat will get you in where the cats hide, and, who knows, you may be able to catch some of those other fish too. Stay safe on the water.
