    I just recently had a nice wide 18 foot fiberglass boat given to me by a doctor who just had it sitting in his garage. im gonna go haul it off later. everything works! live well! steering! Shiny 48 HP evinrude! ill post some pics in a couple days when i get em. i prob wont be able to get it registered for a while cause im kinda strapped for cash. the tags on it currently are 05 from wisconsin. what a glorious day!!
    p.s. anyone wanna buy a 14 foot jon with a 7.5 sears and roebuck? it has nice bucket swivel seats.:wink: 300 bucks for the boat and trailer! it could be yours!

    Now that is just unbelievable Shane! Wow man... that is just some serious Lady's Luck playing on your side. In fact, you should probably call the boat just that.. Lady's Luck!

    Congrats on the MAJOR boat upgrade!

    Sounds like a great deal bro! Congrats! Not to ask a real dumb question, but are you going to keep it in the city and register it with Mo, or across the water back here in Il?

    WOW! Do I have a proposition for you. Let's go into the boat sales business. You get them free and we sale them and split the profit 50/50. Sounds good to me, anyway.:wink: Congrats on the new boat. Sounds perfect for Baldwin. Life is good.

    well, if i had the salary of a doctor like this guy does, i may have given mine away too, but thats not the case. you bring that new truck down to mt vernon, and we'll hook up the boat to it and have a free fishing trip. (minus the ungodly gas prices):wink:
