    Don't know about where you're at but finding a used jon boat around here is like finding hens teeth.
    Reason I ask is because I have a nice trailer that needs a boat on it... I was thinkin' a wide 14 footer like lowe or something? I havent done any shopping at all yet, just thought someone might be able to help narrow the field lol- but I just ain't gonna dick around tryin' to find something used...

    My buddy Holmes has a good deal on a 14 extra wide G3 with a 30hp. He bought a 21' Triumph. Hes on here in the NC section. Since i talked to you with Bill-I know you know your way around.
    I am coming up to philly on the 26th-I could meet you somewhere with it.

    Well, I've been savin' up a couple years for a new jet boat. I have this trailer and it's a waste sittin' here w/o a boat on it. All I'm looking for is just a no frills, lite plain-janer-small-river-beater 14' (or so) J B that I can stick a 9.9 on and go with. It will make my 5th boat lol. the jet will be my 6th, so I'LL probably be sellin a boat or two here pretty soon myself!

    around here you can pick up used little johns 12 and 14 footers for 200 to 400 bucks just about all day long. thats bare boat toss in the back of the truck and go.
