Yea that's a good idea! I had an 19ft sea nymph loaded for about the same price your asking. Couldn't sell it for the life of me for a decent price. Had one guy tell me my 9.9 merc pro kicker was only worth a couple hundred bucks. I parted everything out and made about 1k over my asking price.

Will give you a call as requested after 5..............


To the rest of you guys I want to thank you for your ideas and suggestions. I received a check yesterday from one of you that I have voided and will be returning. I greatly appreciate the offer and the help but unfortunately it is nowhere near what I need to accomplish the task at hand. I coud very well lose the job tomorrow but no matter what I need a vehicle some how or some way to survive....I do have a couple of guys coming to look at the boat next weekend and see all that it has but my time is running out. Been a lousy xmas, a rotten new year and upcoming birthday this week is not looking very promising either...again I appreciate all you guys are doing to try and help.....

Just want to give everyone an update on my predicament. As of today the 16th I still have no vehicle and am still looking to replace the motor in it. I also still have the boat which I guess is a good thing. To the guys who sent me the checks they have been cashed and are being held to help out with anything on the truck if needed. I am still looking to sell the boat. My usage over the past 2 years has been a total of 3 trips. 1 on Lake Champlain and 2 on a small lake for Browns Brant Lake out here in Warren County. I appreciate all your ideas and help but things still not going well. My main focus is trying to get the truck or a little **** beater vehicle to save my job b/c of transportation. Again thanks to everyone for their ideas and or help. Still holding out hope.

Ok maybe I am the dumbest in this .situation. You have posted several times regarding your issues with the IRS and engine. Several of great people have replied on sending you money and assistance in fixing your truck so you can keep your boat however you keep saying your run in out of time and need to sell???

Like another poster (sorry forgot name) said list your stuff separate.

Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

Would need to DESTROY boat to break down stuff to sell separately and it would take more time than I have....yes TWO GREAT PEOPLE sent me $ and it is put aside as i try to get engine....IRS is a minor situation, truck is important and yes running out of time because of work situation and company owned truck...I have not been sitting by doing nothing but trying to get back on your feet and getting credit to even buy another vehicle has not been a walk in the park. I am doing my best but destroying a boat piecemail isn't an option....just my opinion

How about contacting the folks that have posted they can get you a motor for your truck, cheap!! it will be less than the 2G your talking about?

This is very real and nothing phoney about it. I am trying to sell the boat to fix my truck and solve a couple other minor issues. Guys have sent money to help so i don't have to sell the boat. I have used boat 3 times in last 2 years so selling it isn't a big deal. There is nothing fishey about anything, sorry you feel that way.

Im sorry man but your boat as a package is not a 7000 deal. It's probably more like a 3.5-4k in the spring deal. The stuff you have on there and the boat is more than likely the 7k your asking but you're not going to get it unless you separate. I'm talking out of experience and it really kinda sucks. Check out my listing from a year ago....




I could break it down like this....

$400 ---2x cannon mag downriggers

$600  --lowrance HDS5 w/ lake insight gen 2

$400  --Minkota powerdrive 24v trolling motor

$100  --onboard battery charger

$2000  -2011 mercury Prokicker remote/electric start 9.9 high thrust XL shaft

$2500  -1997 Mercury 115hp outboard

$2000  --Trailer & boat

$8000  --TOTAL


Now being realistic, I set the price at 6500 and nothing. I even had a guy tell me that the Pro kicker was only worth a couple hundred bucks. I sold the boat & trailer, bow mount trolling motor and 115hp merc for 4k. Sold the pro-kicker for 2k,the downriggers for $400, and the HDS 5 for $400. All within a week or two of deciding to separate and made out with a total of $6800. just trying to help bud.
