    Just found this on Craigslist today seemed like a pretty good deal so I picked it up from Incline Village Water Patrol for $1700 bucks. Just checked out this month by Cooks. With the new business I am starting up (www.plumbingservices.com tell your friends about it) I knew my "dream boat" was a ways off so I figured this would fit the bill for now. 1998 16' Alumacraft, 40 HP Yammy and a galvanized trailer. Its not the Cat Sass but it'll get me out there more. Perfect size for my lot on the Cuivre river and just enough for the big river if I pay attention to what I'm doin'.:eek:oooh:

    I seen that boat on craigs list and I thought it was a hell of a deal. I have a 1988 alumacraft with a 50 horse yamaha on it. Your going to love that motor and boat.

    Nice boat! Sounds like you got a steal of a deal on it too! Just need to put a rod rack on that bad boy and it's ready to put a slime-coat on it!!

    Congrats!

    I have a plan in the works for your new ride 'bubby'. The accessories may cost more than the boat though.:smile2: A 'mini' Cat SASS??????:eek:oooh:

    That'd be me then........you KNOW I ain't gonna let you get away with having anything crooked, misaligned, cobbled, kibbled, pressure-treated, PVC'ed, mis-wired, un-wired, improperly terminated, unbundled, un-clamped, or otherwise funked-up.:wink:

    Congrats again! You got a pretty good deal.

    Lots of folks been tellin' you to leave them sticker's on...however you might get some unwanted attention if you do! You could be putting yourself in a position for any Tom, Dick and Harry to come up to ya for information...regulations and any and all dumb questions people come up with. :tounge_out::roll_eyes: Could really interfere with your fishing time!:wink: JMHO:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Yeah I know Bill. I don't think the real Water Patrol would find it too humorous.:crazy: The heat gun is coming out before she hits the water for sure. Don't want to get in trouble with "The Man":smile2::smile2: I'd like to hang out with you, for sure. But not while your at work..............:wink:

    Nice looking ride, I would think that they would have at least marked the stickers up BEFORE they sold it........ hell a few years of fun and your still gonna get most of your cash back on it.......
