  1. I had an '89 5.0L mercruiser that would cut off on me at various times.  Somedays no problem and other days would just quit.  I narrowed it down to the ignition coil, however, during the testing of, it passed.


    Didn't matter if coil was hot or not....it would just quit at random moments.  Never understood why, but just ended up replacing the coil, and all was well!  Never had another problem!

  2. Nice ride! I'm boat poor now or I'd take a look. Looks well taken care of and a fair price. If you were closer I'd come check it out. I'm assuming its a 24' with an 8' beam?



    Thank you.  I try my best to take care of it...as I said it is my baby!


    Yes, it is 24' with an 8' beam.  It is an excellent platform to fish out of. 


    It also catches fish!  My biggest brown this year was just over 12lbs out of Fairhaven in May.  My biggest King was just over 30 lbs last August in Oswego.

  3. Not in the market for another boat Ray, got 2 already but if I was, your boat would fit the bill for sure to take a look at. Good luck with the sale.


    I appreciate the comments about how it looks! 

  4. Thanks Roughrider IV.  It is my baby and I treated it like it.  It is a sad time for me (boating wise).


    Forgot to mention that it will also include 4 coast guard life jackets, type iv throwable life saver, 5 bumpers, dock lines for both sides, anchor, 150 qt coleman marine cooler, on-board battery charger, and a complete ez-steer system.


    To sweeten the pot, we can talk about my fishing gear.



  5. Selling my boat only due to moving WEST.   This is a turn-key boat!
