Up for sale is a 1976 Bayliner Mosquito 15' Fiberglass V-Hull boat. This is a very classic "Retro" boat I have owned since 1993. Boat is in great condition and have done many upgrades over time while keeping the integrity of the boat intact. Motor is a 1986 70 HP Johnson Seahorse 2 stroke I had installed as a rebuild with Bombardier Controller in 2004 (still have receipts). Trailer is a"Shore Landr" manufactured trailer, all electric works, lenses clean, and had a new axle, hubs and bearings done approx.10 years ago. Added bearing buddies at same time. Have a clean title for trailer. About the same time had floor of boat re-fiber glassed and put down Cabela's vinyl flooring and added newer seats (see pics). Bimini top was replaced and heavy duty trailerable boat cover is in good shape. Includes Minn Koka 55lb thrust Maxxum 55T electric trolling motor, works fine, Eagle "Fish Easy" mod.  fish/depth finder works fine (have manual), and mounted Garmin 5 GPS unit. Lot's of storage under closed bow, under seats, and back area of boat . Comes with  extra prop, couple life jacket's, anchor, paddle, 2 six gallon fuel tanks, and 12V deep cycle battery. This boat is 41 years old and has it's share of nicks, dings, scrapes, and fiberglass surface spider cracks, but there is no major hull damage that I can see and boat is dry when I have pulled the plug after boating.   Fired the boat up last week, no issues. Motor has had a hesitation issue at times over the past couple years going from idle to mid range speed. Not consistent, have worked around it for my boat trips, but been told it would be best to rebuild or replace mid range carb, possibly clean and or rebuild all carbs. I am no boat mechanic. Not using boat, have upgraded to newer boat. The Mosquito needs a new home. Willing to take to nearby lake for test drive/check. This boat is being sold "As Is" and successful bidder responsible for picking boat up at current location in Southwest Colorado.
