THIS BOAT IS BEING RE-LISTED BECAUSE THE LADY STATED HER HUSBAND WILL NOT LET HER KEEP IT.......DON'T WANT TO BREAK UP ANY MARRIAGES.......ENOUGH SAID.....17' EBB TIDE BOAT WITH A 1986 75 HP MARINER AND HOMEMADE? TRAILER. I ACQUIRED THIS BOAT WITH THE INTENTION OF MAKING IT INTO A CRABBING BOAT. MY BUSINESS IS TAKING OFF AND I JUST DO NOT HAVE THE TIME. THE ENGINE RUNS WELL. I CAN START IT SO YOU CAN HEAR IT RUN.  IT NEEDS A LOWER UNIT (MISSING). I WAS TOLD MARINER AND MERCURY ARE THE SAME LOWER UNIT. THE BOAT IS USABLE ONCE A LOWER UNIT IS INSTALLED, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL. THE HULL AND TRANSOM SEEM SOLID. THE SEATS ARE USABLE BUT WEATHERED. I INSTALLED A NEW KEYED STARTER SWITCH SO AS TO BE ABLE TO RUN THE ENGINE. IT STARTS,  IDLES AND REVS WELL. COMPRESSION IS GOOD IN ALL THREE CYLINDERS. THE CONTROLS WORK AS THEY SHOULD  INCLUDING THE STEERING. THERE IS A FIXED 18 GALLON? GAS TANK IN THE BACK OF THE BOAT.  NONE OF THE GLASS IS CRACKED. THE BOW EYE IS LOOSE. I THINK IT WAS OVER TIGHTENED. TRAILER IS ROAD WORTHY BUT NEEDS TO BE FITTED TO BOAT BETTER. WE TRAILERED IT 25 MILES WITH NO PROBLEMS USING RATCHET STRAPS. I DID WAX AND SHINE THE PORT SIDE OF THE BOAT. BUFFED UP PRETTY GOOD.   NOW FOR THE HISTORY OF THE BOAT. THE BOAT MOTOR AND TRAILER WERE LEFT AT CHURCH FOR 10 YEARS BY AN EX-EMPLOYEE WHERE IT SAT. THEY ASKED ME TO REMOVE IT. I HAVE A LETTER FROM THE CHURCH STATING THAT IT HAS BEEN THERE IN THEIR COMPOUND FOR OVER 10 YEARS. THEY TRIED TO CONTACT THE OWNER BUT HE WOULD NOT RESPOND. THIS BEING SAID, I DON'T HAVE A TITLE FOR THE BOAT OR TRAILER. I ASSUME DNR HAS SOME PROCESS FOR RETITLING AN ABANDONED BOAT HOWEVER I NEVER LOOKED INTO HOW TO DO IT. FEEL FREE TO ASK ME ANY QUESTIONS. BOAT MOTOR AND TRAILER ARE  SOLD AS IS. IT IS LOCATED IN BEL AIR, MD. 21014   IF YOU CARE TO COME SEE IT IN PERSON LET ME KNOW. LOCAL PICK-UP IS FINE OR BUYER TO PAY ALL SHIPPING CHARGES. NO RESERVE. THE HIGHEST BID WINS THE BOAT, MOTOR AND TRAILER.... AND PLEASE ASK YOUR SPOUSE, GIRLFRIEND, OR MOTHER  BEFORE BIDDING.
