Re: Researching used boats

I know what you mean about the lights shattering. I would have to replace a bulb every couple of trips. Rather than spend the money on LEDs I just started to unplugging my lights before backing into the water. Have not replaced a light since. I will wait to replace the lights until the next time I smash a light on a dock.

zman,

Maybe you could shoot me an e-mail sometime? I've be happy to compare notes with you.

Make sure she floats , take anything used to a nearby lake and run it hard to make sure it does what you are being told.

Switched to LED and it was the best move ever.

Re: Researching used boats

They are right...I have a 14 Lund Rebel and sometimes I wish it were a 16...but Lunds are pretty deep and do well in waves...my advice is if it doesnt have a trailer with LED lights buy a kit and switch them immediately...my bulbs on my shorelander used to drive me nuts...they would get hot and pop when submerged even though they arent supposed to...nothing worse than fishing all day and leaving the lake late and having to mess with tail lights...

If you can, try to get a 14' at least. I have a 12' thats fully rigged, if you add all your gear and one other person it's about maxed out for weight. When the 2-3 foot waves start it's no longer fun, it's outright scary! I'm upgrading to a 16' as soon as I find one.

Okay. Sounds good. Just remember you cannot use a gas engine @ Aurora Res and a few others. Make sure the trailer tires have no weather rot. That might save some bucks.

You may also want to look at www.iboats.com, That is where I found my boat.
