I can't believe I am saying this, but my wife wants another boat. We saw one last night. I will likely call today. Looks to be about 14'-16'. It has a nice paint job, and the rest says project. Windshield is there, but not looking great.
Did many if not all of these aluminum runabouts have or not have a floor?
This one looks too shallow to have had a floor, but someone added one anyway.
I hope they are asking too much to make it easier for me to walk away.
It also has a mid 60's Johnson. Looks to be about a 40HP.

Well, after I called the guy, got a price of $700.
Not too bad. I'm sure I could get him down, but then my wife says we would have to get rid of the other boat.
A little mis-understanding here.
I didn't put 5 years of labor (and $6200) into the boat to sell it after only 9 trips to local lakes.

Boat is a DuraTech. Very heavy duty. 16' runabout.
I will get pics if anyone else is interested. It is in the Bakersville section of New Hartford, CT.
He says the engine runs and is fine. Who knows.

DIB68, where is that boat located.
