    I'm moving up to Smithville MO. middle of May, and looking to buy a used fishing boat..Doesn't have to be anything fancy, just something to get me out on the lake to do some fishing..If anyone knows of any for sale in the area please let me know..Thank you

    Have a good day

    There are at least two dealers right in Smithville that may have what you need. When you go, look over the lot carefully. I found the boat that I bought at Smithville Marine back in the weeds. The trailer did not even have any tires on it at the time. Take time to deal with them they always leave themselves some "wiggle room". I got the boat six years ago and have never regretted it, --paddle:0a17:

    I live in Olathe, and have my old boat for sale. It is a 16ft Tracker jon boat, trailer, and 15 hp Mercury motor that I am having tuned up now and spending $150.00 on it for repairs of carburetor and shifting mechanism. I am hoping to get $1400.00 for it but if interested make an offer.

    I will take some and e-mail them to you. It also has a 12 volt bow mounted trolling motor. The boat is 12 years old and I have had it up on a boat lift most of the time. The motor is older mayby 18 years? I bought both new and used them occasionaly at our lake home. The motor has always been an easy starter.

    I will try and load the other two pictures. For some reason the site won't allow me to upload the other two pictures.

    Hey all,

    I'm new to this site but love to fish for "cats". I, too, am looking for a good used and inexpensive boat. What I'd really like to have is the little dinghy type boats that seat a couple of people. If anyone has one or knows where one can be found please respond.

    Thanks!!
