Loved my SKEETER and had it for 10 years without an issue on boat or motor. It was a great musky fishing boat and we saw plenty of action together. But when I decided to re

This is my deep water boat, it is a 28ft Marinette with twin 318's. I have a 19ft Ranger from 1989 that I restored and a 2000 Xpress with an outboard jet for shallow river running.    Art

Nice Boats fella's My Baby. 2014 Lund Pro-Guide 1675 with a 2010 Etec 75. Best Kijiji find I have ever had.

Taking the boat out of storage this year I found that a mouse had made residence in the compartment under my seats. That called for a full vacuum and wash of the entire boat. Then the boat launches were closed, which meant even more cleaning and waxing to pass the time. I realized I didn’t have a photo of the boat with the new seats in it.

its nice to know that if you take care of a even a 22 year old boat they can look nearly new.

An old friend used to own and charter a 40 foot Post Sportfish in Port Credit, then he upgraded to a 42,  I though "what only 2 feet "  it was 2 foot wider too, big difference. His favourite saying  " you don't own a real boat until you get to sleep in a real bed " he lived year round on them.

My buddy lived in his 36' Hatteras on J dock in Pt. Credit for years. 

Had a lot of good times on that boat.

Brian is always happy to help a fellow fisherman. I have a few pals that own Princecrafts. The only thing that isn't great in my mind is that the transoms are low in some models. Water splashes into the water wells more than others. So much so that one guy I know installed a 2nd bilge pump under the water well just for that. Other than that great boats. 

That 91' 680T Ranger of Tomcats is a beauty. And Arts Bass boat looks showroom new, I wouldn't expect anything less.

Another Great Lake transplant from the south.

Hydra Sports 1800cc with a Mariner 150 both 1989 from Fla. Great little fishing boat that will handle more wave than most guests can take:)

More divorces are due to boats not the other woman. "

 

I guess I'm lucky....she wants me to buy a newer, bigger boat. I just dont want the payments

I guess alimony payments could be much worse!

I just sold my boat yesterday..  14' tiner with a 25hp Johny.

 

Paid $800 for it about 15 years ago. 

Got $2600 for it!  

 

Going to put it toward a fishing boat that's more cruizy and capable.   Something very similar to Rustic Fishers boat.

Exactly the boat I need. It would limit as to were I fish here on Erie, I wouldn't be going out to 100' water depths 10 miles out but I would be able to launch it solo without killing myself and with 2 of us it should take a few minutes to launch and retrieve.
