My Boat is SOLD. Over the last year I have invested well over 10k into this rig, making it a fish killing machine for local inshore and baja. This year alone I have taken it to San Quintin twice (Fishing Isla de San Martin), 1 trip to Bola (fishing the outer Isla de LA Gaurdia & Partida), 1 trip to Punta baja to fish Sac Reef / Geronimo Island. Perfect for wash board roads and beach launching in Baja. Took offshore 50 miles tuna fishing at the end of the 2009 season as well. Multiple seabass trips to Catalina, Coronados, LaJolla, as well as 2 camping trips to Catalina hauling my wife, dog, mt bikes and all camping gear. This boat is extremely fuel efficient and super easy to tow. Has lots of fishing space for its size

I am really going to miss this fish killer. If I had room in my driveway, I would buy her. This sled fishes three but is total luxury for two with cushions on the cooler to sit on, and is really stable in chop while tuna fishing way offshore. No T-top to get in the way of casting on the boiler rocks either. Damn, I need to buy this but then your wife is stoked you are down to 1 boat and my wife is pissed I am up to 2 boats...

How is this not sold yet???? Weird marketplace out there right now. Very nice boat. Wish I had the cash.

Exactly. This is a great boat and $6500 is WAY too cheap. Two people can pony up 3250$ each and partner on this boat? You kidding me? The engine is barely broken in, good for many years of smoke free, no oil mixing or buying 2 stroke oil anymore, no warming up, quiet, reliable, epic mileage, no stalling then you add a rock solid alum hull which will last longer than most of us... damn
It hits the boat trader in 2 days. Get out your wallet quick if you want a sick boat for cheap. The first sea trial will buy this boat. Heck, buy it now, use it for four years until the republicans get the economy back on track then sell it for a profit.

This boat should not still be for sale!
If I wouldn't have bought the NoZilla in April, this boat would be in my driveway.

Damn...................

As the current owner of a similar boat and not affiliated with the seller, I'm telling you that unless this baby has a 2' hole in the bottom, you will never find a better deal on an aluminum of this size... Good Luck!!!

My first boat was a 1982 18' Bayrunner and I loved it. Didn't look half as nice as yours but it killed plenty of fish. Great boat too, easy to tow with anything, can run'em all day on almost no fuel, easy to clean ext. At 5,500.00 it should be gone all ready.

Exactly...this sled slays the fish, so much casting room, Fish all day in Catalina and spend less than $25 in fuel. Only selling it cause there are now 2 in my driveway. I hope someone takes advantage of this great deal before you guys talk me into keeping it!


And no...there are no 2' holes, no leaks Give me a call with any questions
