    1976 16ft Starcraft super sport
    1976 Evinrude 70 hp
    TeeNee trailer
    1100.00

    My buddy told me his father in law had a boat for sale...cheap.
    I went to look at it and really liked it but did not have the cash. So I put my 2008 Bowtech General on ebay and sold a few other things. The boat is almost mint and so is the motor, trailer needs some work.

    I will post pics of the work in progress.

    Man, some people just get good deals. I paid $2500 for a flat bottom jon boat, steering console on the right side, 40hp motor. Dude, you got a great deal. Enjoy it, and catch lots of fish!!!!
