65hp Merc, trolling motor, 2 fish finders, solid floors and transom, motor runs well and passes compression test. They want $1800, sounds high but around here demand is high and supply is low. I'm wondering though whether it will make a decent fishing rig. We want to fish for everything from sandies and stripers to catfish. My other thought is that this is at a dealership and has been checked by the service dept. The dealerships are busy and quoting 3 weeks to check out a boat from a private seller (or any other repair for that matter). So far in my price range all I've found that were even worth considering are the bass boat in my other post and this one. The biggest thing I see is that at times there will be three of us fishing and i'm afraid it's just going to be too cramped. Another question, will the 65hp's be enough for this boat? I't's 15 ft. What about pulling the occasional tube?
