      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

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.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.
    • walleye29us
      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!

      Saw over 10 birds on opener....all before legal shooting hour....Only 1 after before the rain started.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
