    havent put it in the river yet but we drove it in a big lake to test drive. its a camo 16 foot lowe jon with a 20 hp engine and a minn kotta 50 lb thrust trolling motor with trailer has steering wheel instead of the stick in the back he also is bringing me today a fishfinder that was from bass pro shop. dont know the brand yet. i paid 1500 and it started great and ran great and the trolling motor worked good with the foot pedal. didnt see any patches or caulking under the boat. hope this was a good deal. im hoping to have it ready for the river this weekend.

    Sounds like a great deal to me. In all honesty, my opinion or anyone else's opinion doesn't really matter. If you are happy about the boat, then you got a good deal. Sounds like a winner to me, enjoy!!!

    Congrats on your new boat. Sounds like a great deal to me but as long as you are happy with the price, it is a good deal. Be safe on the water and good luck.

    the boat ran great that first night and been running great every since. almost hit a barge and thought i was going to die but besides that it was great. have only put 4 catfish and 1 big carp in the boat so far. small cats. but give me time and i will be posting some trophies.
