I am listing this for my brother in law, who is 77 years old and did not and still don't, fish much out of a boat. He has owned this boat since 93. He bought the Mercury 90 HP new in 93. I just found out from him it is an oil injection, just had a spring check up. He also said its has used less than a Gal. and a half oil, to inject into the fuel since he bought it new. just shows how new this motor is. He said it starts and runs great and has very low hours and has never been down. The boat is a Bass Cat, it is 79 year model and the trailer is a 79 year model also. The trailer has a front turn wheel on it to move around easily. There's no rust out spots in it and there's a spare tire for it and the tires are in pretty good shape he said. Both have good title. There's a Hummingbird Fish-finder, and I think he told me the other finder is an Eagle. The trolling motor goes with it and there are two anchors. All works and ready for the lake. Please contact me if you have any other questions and I will relay them to him he lives right down the road from me. He said to start the bidding at $1,200 is a PICK-UP ONLY item. This item is for sale locally.


Ya'll can see that this
IS NOT, a new boat. But it is 4-5 times the boat of the starting bid. 3-4 hrs of spent spit and polishing, the boat would automatically double the starting bid. Look the floor is good. it is not busted up anywhere. The seats are just independent seats and could be prettied up too. There was nothing wrong with the transit. My brother-in-law said the last thing he, "wanted to see was his brand new motor falling off the back into the lake". so he added the treated 2x4 when he put it on for insurance in 93. said he didn't care about pretty. just wanted it to last. It is just a good ole boat with a damn good motor. Any of you guys that know about boats and motors know the motor alone is worth twice the starting price. Oh, and please, if you bid, don't keep shopping, find another boat then retract your bid cause there were to many days remaining before close auction ........ he is about 4 miles from a place to put it in the Carlyle Lake at Keyesport, IL. so you can take her for a spin.
Thank you and happy bidding....... Elmo                                                               Revised
