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.

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!

Do you think a 2013 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 could haul this boat safely? It's rated to 5500 lbs.

There is no way a Tacoma will tow this. I have a 25' offshore fisherman and able to tow with a F150.

This is the perfect boat for the big pond. Handles great in rough seas and fast if you need speed too.

With the T4 - you can sit anywhere and steer the boat.

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.
