For those that have heard but haven't seen yet, Hershell (redticrunner) and I have acquired a larger fishing boat that we have been looking for for a good while now. It isn't anything fancy and needs some minor repairs and remodeling that will be done slowly over time but we are very pleased and think we got a good deal. We traded our 14' flatbottom aluminium jon boat with 25 hp motor and trailer for this 1988 17' Polar Craft semi-v, aluminium, side console with 85 hp evinrude motor and trailer. It does great on the water, no leaks. There are a few minor repairs that need to be made like adding tilt/trim, captain seats and storage seat because the boards are not in good shape inside (not a problem for 2 people with furniture factory backgrounds), needs new carpeting and had to replace the wench crank after taking it out the first time because it stripped out. None of these are major problems and will jsut take some time. Ohh, and we need to put on a new coil (just discovered that over the weekend). Here are some before photos.. I will post some after photos when we get a few things done to it.
