Well, after months of searching Craigslist all over the country, flagging HUNDREDS of Spammers who wanted to sell a new pontoon boat for $2200.00 that claimed they were in the service or her husband and son had died in a car accident and even after I filled out one spammer's form indicating my address was 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. They kept posting! Finally last Friday a local guy posted a used BassTracker 20' with a 40 HP Mariner older boat 1985 ! Yes, a real person! We went and looked at it, took a test ride, kicked the tires and bought it on the spot!

It needs some work so I will be leaning on y'all to give me your opinions about how to resolve some issues. I have owned other boats prior but never one like this.

Read thru lots of the postings about some of my concerns I have and found a lot of really good responses.

Here are some of the photos of the boat in it's current stage.  Will be taking it to a mechanic Friday to get the motor checked out, then do some trailer work that is needed.
