219F Stratos for sale, *SOLD*

34 posts in this topic

The famous black 219F Stratos is for sale. Due to a new job, relocating and some very nasty medical bills I need to sell my boat fast. This boat has been my baby for many years and has always been stored inside. If it was not that I absolutely had to sell the boat I would have kept it for a long time.

This boat does not have any major damage of any kind. It does have few minor scratches from years of use but nothing noticeable or bad at all.

As far as specs and fish ability;

The 219 was the boat to have if you where a pro walleye fisherman, pro musky fisherman, a Guide that needed a safe boat with lots of room or if you wanted the security and safety of big deep boat with the speed and handling of a low profile bass boat. With the 219 you can have the best of both worlds.

This is a very fast boat (60mph loaded) that is deep enough to handle rough water and safely contain kids but still very fishable with the large casting decks while maintaining that sleek “no messing around” look. It can actually serve the married guys great; he can fish off the front deck and the rear deck is large enough for the misses to lay in the sun and kiddo can play in the middle without easy escape over the edge, or you can pop out the rear deck and take three of your buddies trolling for walleyes…everybody is happy. Not to mention the motor is very good on fuel.

Every switch, light, beeper, latch and function works on this boat other then the horn, sometimes it needs a little wiggle to work and I do have the replacement switch on the workbench.

I must have $9000 to pay-off the bank (dang divorce refi) and release the title. Since I need to sell it fairly quickly I am selling it at rock bottom or for what is owed so I can pay medical bills instead.

Email any inquiries to esox24.7@multiband.us Since I work on the road and I am gone days at a time I will answer emails as soon as possible.

No personal checks, must be certified funds or cash.

I wish I could afford a boat like that... but then again I would need to afford a vehicle to pull it around with too.

Funny thing is back in the day the Toyota and Stratos where both new items. I pulled that boat around for many years with a V6 Toyota or what the Tacoma is now. We didn't set any land speed records but we got to point B from point A every single time. Work trucks came and went but that little Toyota seemed to like pulling that boat.

As far as the transducer and cover...little bit of a story. I currently have an x-19 on the counsel and an x-15 on the bow. Many years ago I promised the x-19 to a friend if I ever sold the boat so I will put the x-15 on counsel and remove the x-19 from the package, a promise is a promise. The trolling motor does not have the self contained transducer; I tried a couple versions and was very unhappy with it so I went back to the cable run down the trolling motor shaft. The x-15 that will be on the counsel will read at full speed, I went through great length to make sure of that when the new units where installed. So no transducer or unit on the bow when it is sold. P.S. The X-15 may have a few waypoints left on it, what do you guess those are worth? wink.gif

The cover; Yes I have a custom built cover made by Canvas Craft. Great cover...two years ago. When I got robbed last year the front of the cover around the trolling motor got a star shaped tear in it and the cover was custom built to cover the both the main motor and the kicker motor. Well the thieves ran into a few problems. First they couldn't figure out how to untie a knot so they tore the front of the cover a little and did enough damage to the kicker I would not feel comfortable selling the kicker with the boat. The throttle linkage is all busted and ignition leads are messed up. They tried to jerk the kicker motor off the back of the boat with the linkage connected. So you now have a big pocket for the kicker hood that has to be bungee corded up in a bundle when you travel with the cover on not to mention it floated in a road ditch for two weeks getting discolored until it was found, the crooks tried to cover the load of stolen stuff with it. So yes I have a cover that still does seal it up and keep the weather out even when traveling but it looks like heck, it was a nice cover before the crack heads got it. It does come with the boat.

The boat is 19' hence the 2"19", the trailer does have a removable tongue with two pins incase the garage is too short, other wise the wife parks outside.

I replied to emails with a phone number under my signature. I am replying to emails on the road. Working one job on the road and a second on the weekend nights has me running pretty hard, but I will make time for you guys to look at the boat week nights or weekend mornings.

It was going to sell tommorow but that fell through at the last minute due to the poor fellers vehicle issues. So it almost went already.

You gonna be back home soon? Let me know, I'll be up there some this fall, maybe we can wet a line.

Good luck!

I can now lay my head to rest because I have seen it all.

After two very long nights of answering questions going through every single function the individual decided not to buy the boat because Evinrude motors can't be trusted...I wish some one would have told me that when I was hauling clients with young kids across windswept Leech or crashing headlong into the wind on Mille Lacs.

confused.gif

That said I can not afford any more time pulling this boat around and spending 6 hours answering questions. It is a used boat either you want it or you don't. I am working two jobs and trying to move so if you want to screw around and kick tires to bad for you, go buy a Lund.

I have a few calls to make to guys that already got in line (Steve B first then Terry F) if those two inline do not purchase it is back on the open market so you may want put your name in now if you are interested.

Ok it sounds like 85% percent of the male population is letting the wife wear the pants. So please ask you wife permission before you come see the boat or tell me to hold it so you can get a check cut. confused.gif ...and poeple ask why I won't get married again. wink.gif

The boat is on the open market again. Although during this coming week it will be hauled down to my new home that is about an hour south of the cities. So if you want to see it better do it quick or you'll have a drive ahead of you.

mtreno, give me a call if you want to look at it.

I see Jon is having some problems with folks picking apart his boat.

Let me share a story from the last time we went fishing regarding his truck (which merely pulls the boat, and is in no way, shape, or form equal to it). We had just come back to shore after a night of fishing, and we had to trailer the boat. In the process, I got a little sand on my shoes. After shaking them off, and jumping in the truck, I crossed my legs......big mistake. The sole of my shoes (with perhaps 6 grains of sand on them) glanced his dash.......I thought he was going to make me lick it clean. Let's just say Jon is particular about his fishing equipment, and takes immaculate care of it.

As for the boat, it is what it is, a great used boat for the money. However, rest assured, that the "used" portion of that statement should have an asterisk behind it for the good care he takes of it.

Good luck with the boat Jon,

Joel

Hey bud, I would have to agree with you on this one. My good friend who I always fish with, has the same 219F (in diff. color) and I could not think of a better boat to buy. Honestly, If I had the money I would probably offer 10K just so I could be sure to get it.

This is a good boat people...

From my past experience dealing with Mr Jon P.,he was honest in what he told me and the condition of the sale items were as told.One honest dude as far as my dealings with him. smile.gifAll items were like brand new yet still used.He took very good care of these things.

One item I purchased from him was a trolling motor.I had a couple wires wrong and talked to him and he said if something was wrong he would see that it was taken care of.Later found out it was just a loose connection for the auto pilot.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
