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.

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.

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout
    • Luttes
      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
