How much for the boat? It looks really nice for the year. Does the boat float okay? any leaks? How does it handle waves and wakes? I am very intreseted in it.

I think I just read in another post of yours that you are selling the boat for $1000 is that true? If so I would love to buy it

Yep a $1000 Once I get off my lazy ass ill go and take some pics of it. Im storing it at a great great great nice helping friends house right now but she lives alittle far. Maybe this weekend.(I say that every weekend) The boat runs great. No water leeks and only 1 small dent in the front but it doesnt effect it in any way. I also have some batterys in there as well for the Lights,fishfinder(not Included) livewell(Ice chest w/ pump) and trolling motor)

What year is the motor and troller?How many people can it hold and what is the weight limit?I see that it is higher then other boats, which is proabablly a good thing so it doesnt take on water. Are theese boats safe to stand in?

Safe to stand in? My brother and I would stand in that thing all night catching smallies at Chat.

The motor is a 58 if I remember correctly. You wouldnt know it by looking at it though. Man I love that motor. The trolling motor I got last year and I think its a 32lb thrust

Dont remember but Ive taken Myself, Mom & nephew all out on it and it did fine.(Me and Mom could loose a few lbs)

He also suggested a small 6 HP motor for it. and all together with the motor and boat it would be $1,500. Does this sound like a good deal? And how fast will a 6 HP motor go? I read in the brouchure and it said person weight limit and it said 3/325. Does that mean that all together that there cant be more then 325lbs on the boat? That must mean 3 100lb little kids must be driving the boat. This means I wouldnt even be able to take my dad....Can I go over that limit?
what type of waters are you looking to fish with this boat?
Thats what it all comes down to...

River? Pond? Lake?
All of the above?

You want something that can take a beating too...some smaller boats would not be fun to ride in on a bigger lake when the wind gets a howling...
How much are you looking to spend? Would you be willing to finance one?
