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

21 posts in this topic

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

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.

    • Ok so every year Try to get the guys from work on a fishing trip. Trying to decide on where to go we usually rent a cabin and run portables.

      I am thinking Devils lake, LOW, or Red

      Devils we would do the lodge ice house package because the deal is too good to mess with bringing a trailer and sled or wheelers with.

       

      what would you choose and any other suggestions Leech or Vermillion?

    • I plan on taking all my ice fishing equipment out of my shed this week I cant wait

      any  reports from today? we pounded through the washing machine waves all day and got nothing! Lead core,jigging, spinners haha! Ended up getting all our keepers within a mile of home when it was all over! Who else was out there? Am I the only one that did poor today?

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.
