    I have a back injury and I can't fish and hunt like I want to anymore. I have sold almost all of my fishing and hunting stuff. The last thing to go is my boad. I have had this SeaArk 1448 since it was new in 1996 and the 25 hp 4-Stroke Yamaha which I bought new in 1999. The boat has not been on the water since I took it duck hunting in December of 2007. The boat has an aluminum floor with Styrofoam flotation installed between the ribs to make it quieter. It has aluminum sides and the back seats and deck are cut out for storage. It is wired for a trolling motor and lights. It comes with an Eagle Optima Sonar, rod holders, decoy net, etc. It also has a custom live well. It needs some minor repairs like a new light fixture and some switches. I really don't feel like cleaning it up. So, I am offering it for 2,950 dollars cash as it sits - leaves and all. If it doesn't sale, I will have it cleaned and serviced - of course, it will cost more then.



    Here is the link to the modifications that I made: http://brotherhood-of-catfishermen....7169.html?1094354610]boat%20modifications

    Here are some pics as it sits from my personal website (the date on the pictures is wrong) http://michaelayers.smugmug.com/gallery/7111072_dgAqC/1/455954895_5SsV9

    I live in Winston-Salem.

Ive been hanging on one of those inversion tables dont know if it would help you but it gives me some relief

    I've been avoiding surgeons for the passed 13 years thanks to the help of Chiropractors. I can still do some things that I want to do as long as I'm carefull. Don't give up fishing all together, it has helped me to stay busy while I try to find work that I'll be able to do.

    I remember when you posted those mods to your boat on the old BOC looks like a great boat and hope it sells soon for ya. I always liked reading your posts on flathead fishing on the old BOC. Here's hoping that you kick yourself in the butt soon because your back gets all better.
