SOLD 16' Starcraft Aluminum Deep & Wide Boat - $300 SOLD

6 posts in this topic

16' Starcraft Seafarer Boat

Rated for 35HP motor

1300# Capacity

Project boat I bought last year - planned on putting in a full flat floor and using it as a fishing and duck hunting boat. Doesn't look like I'm going to have the time to do it - wife wants it out of the yard.

Hull is solid and doesn't leak, I took it down to the lake right after I bought it and rowed around for 15 minutes without a drop inside.

New transom board and solid aluminum support plate have already been installed also comes with wood template for a front casting deck/platform. Seat mounting brackets are also still intact, if you're going to put bench seats in this will make it a whole lot easier. All you need to do to get it into fishable condition is install floor/seats and flotation.

No trailer so you'd need one when picking it up. I can help load it as it's a two person job.

Asking $300 just to get out of it what I have into it. Probably worth quite a bit in scrap but thought I'd give a fisherman on a budget a shot at it first.

This would be a great boat at a great price for someone with the time to put into it. Pick it up this week and you'll have three weeks to get it ready in time for opener!

Would this need a long shaft or could a short shaft motor work?

I'm not positive but I believe it takes a long shaft motor. I'll measure as soon as I get home tonight and post the measurement.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
