Hello brothers. I am looking at a used 1988 Lund with a 40 hp Johnson. It has a console, fishfinder and trolling motor. It has sat uncovered for 2 years. He said it hasn't been started in 2 years but was winterized. The trailer and boat tags were 04' which tells me it sat longer or he took it out w/ expired tags. The carpet had moss growing on it, was well worn but the decking seemed good. The steering cable seemed locked up or there is a release I couldn't find. Shorelander trailer with some rust. Seats were not in bad shape. A few dings but not bad. Transom seemed sound. Butttt it is a Lund. He wanted $2000 for it but I can probably get him down. It's my neighbors uncle so I can take it out and test drive and keep it for a little while. I tried the blue book and couldn't find the correct model # but most of the values were around $900. I assume this is just for the hull and the Johnson is worth $800-900 if it runs. He bought it off an 81 yo man that cried when it left. It was purchased from brand new from Culver Marina on lake Maxinkuckee in 88'. This is one of the lakes I want to target this year, which is a good sign. Does anyone know a mechanic on the North side of Indy I take it too (or take him to the boat) and check the compression, steering and other issues? I called Culver Marina and can take it there for $135 inspection. That's a 2 hr drive for me. I would rather give $100 cash to a fellow BOC or someone you know. Riverscum:wink: My thoughts are powerwash it, new carpet/vinyl/spray on bedliner and its ready to fish. Then I can spend some time on it in the fall/winter. Should be Alum. stringers so if I re-deck there would be no stinger repairs. Hopefully foam is not saturated. It's hard to pass up a Lund. I felt like punching him for leaving it uncovered and not taking care of it! Let me know your thoughts, sorry no pics at this time.
