    If it starts and runs well it is a steal. Rod holders and possibly a trolling motor. Depends on how you fish.

    Sure it can be one. As for mods. start by lookin through the library and the gallery. Get out the good ol trusty note pad and take notes draw ideas and ask questions. Do you lake or river fish? That can help with the pole holder ideas. tournament fishing? That will help on a external livewell install. Those are just acouple ideas for ya think about.:0a26:

    A little fishing, a little family, decent price, if she checks out,(and check her out good) I would.
    Be a good one to start out with.

    If it is as good as shape as he says it is I'd by it in a hurry for that price!! Check other peoples boats and fish out of it a little bit andget your ideas to make it your own then start the mods. If in a year or two if you decide you want a different boat or just want to sell it. I think you could return your money very east. Good luck on your decision.

    Hey Christopher,
    You dont mention where you are planning to fish, rivers Big or small, if you are going into small rivers I might keep looking, if the rivers are deep or lakes I would check it out good,,, grab the out board and pull up and see if there is any movement of the transome "rot" if that and everything else looks good as far as a fishing platform goes, it would make a great one,,, I would go for it:wink:

    No, absolutely not!!! You should stay as far away from that boat as you can. At least long enough for me to drive to Des Moines and buy it myself!!:smile2::smile2:

    All kidding aside, if it's as reliable as the ad says it is, I would jump on it and get it all slimed up!!!!!

    Rod holders, storage, lighting, and comfort. Think about how you are going to use it. I tend to lean toward modifications that are removable if I want to use the boat for something else. I never do use it for anything else, but hey what do I know???:smile2::smile2:

    Good luck, looks like a good buy!
