      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

SOLD 12' aluminum fishing boat w/ 6hp motor and trailer SOLD

Recommended Posts

firetiger03

I have for sale a 1959 12' aluminum fishing boat. It comes with a 1972 Johnson "50th Anniv. eedition" 6hp motor and a 1999 Spartan Sport trailer.

THE BOAT

I replaced the motor mounts and repainted the interior with non-skid paint from front to back. There are 2 clamp on captain chairs and a 3 rod holder.

THE TRAILER

The trailer is a 1999 Spartan Sport with a 2" hitch and a 3rd wheel in front. The trailer has very few miles on it.

THE MOTOR

The motor is a 1972 Johnson 6hp "50th anniversary edition" short shaft. New plugs this spring. The shift lever has been replaced with and aluminum lever at some time. Does not affect the motor in any way. You will need a new fuel line to the gas tank as the old one was a little leaky.

I also will throw in a 3.3 gallon plastic gas tank, canvas cover with bag, minnow bucket, and an smaller anchor with rope... not attached yet.

I am located in Hopkins, MN and so is the boat.

Asking $650

Dave

Pics can be emailed or found here.

Good looking rig. Out of curiosity, what type of paint did you use in the interior? I have a similar rig that I would like to do the same to. BTW, I passed this add on to a firend in the market for this type of rig.

Thank you. I used a paint that I found at West Marine. It's got a little bit of sand in the paint to make it non-skid.

Thanks again, hope I hear from him.

I did forget to list that the boat and trailer will need to be licensed. I have the title for the trailer, the boat does not have one being it's older and under 14'.

Licensing the boat is $35 for three years. If it's already licensed it just transfers over to you. You have to pay a transfer fee for the trailer. Mine was about $15.

Thanks for the info Sandmannd, yes that is about what it is to license the boat. The boat is not licensed.

The boat is ready for the water, no leaks or holes. Just the one for the drain. Can't tell you how much it weighs but it can't be that much. Easy on and off the trailer.

Forgot to mention that I also have straps for the boat.

After looking in Ebay I think I have found the maker of the boat. It looks to be a Sears model. Someone is selling a 1971 that looks exactly like this one. Tell me what you think. Item # 150021659993

Yes, that would be fine. I'm home about 4:15 every day so whenever you would like to come out and take a look would be fine.

I should be around but if not leave a message with a phone number where I can reach you. Very serious about possible purchase. I will be in the cities on Wednesday. Is it a full twelve feet or 11.5? Thanks

Actually I think the boat is just over 12ft. I'll have to measure it.

At this point I would really like to sell the entire package instead of breaking them up. If by next week it still hasn't sold I will consider selling individually.

Actually Dave, if you find a buyer for the boat, and the price is right, I'd love to take the motor off your hands. Just another option for you!

Frenzy,

I'll keep that in mind. I've also listed the package on CL here in Mpls and have received quite a few inquiries already.

I found a neighbor that has a 14 foot boat that will work for me. However anyone looking at this package should jump at it. A similar trailer is selling on Craig's List for for $575.00 and boats like this are at least $300.00. You also know what these motors are worth. This is a great buy. It would've been gone if I hadn't of bought a new trailer already. Good luck selling.

Glad to hear you found a boat.

Thanks for the compliment. I really do think this is a very good deal. I just don't have the time to get out on the lake right now and when I do, I go up to my buddies cabin and use the boat up there.

I have a couple people coming over to look at the boat this week. I'm sure I'll find a new home for it.

      Any new ice reports?  Looking For s something about Nicholas or strand

      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?
    • Hoey
      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.

      Wow that is great to know.  Thanks for sharing.  Nothing like learning the laws from a CO on the lake.
    • birdguy
      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.
    • OhioVike
      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!
    • workin4bait
      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.
    • KidMoe
      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it.
