SOLD FS 1984 Sylvan 18ft boat/motor/trailer, needs cleanup, SOLD

Recommended Posts

1984 Sylvan 18ft aluminum deep V boat with 1985 Evinrude 120hp V4 oil injected, power tilt & trim, and nice HD trailer.

Boat was left at dock A LOT, needs a good cleanup, ands some small fixing (some wires, etc), it has a Minnkota bow mount trolling motor, Humminbird sonar, etc.

Motor is excellent, power tilt & trim, 120lbs compression all 4 cylinders, runs good (will need water pump replaced, of course).

Trailer is very solid, bunk style with bearing buddies, traveled 450miles at 70mph no problem....

All this boat needs is a good cleanup and some electrical wires replaced. If price is not negotiated I will add all the needed parts for free.

Price at $ 2000

Located near Faribault, MN 25 miles south of MPLS.

GET IT NOW WHILE IT'S STILL EARLY, if you wait 1 month I will sell higher.....

There are a ton of these combos up here. They are a great boat/motor pair. I'm not in the market, but that price is right!

I will also accept partial trade with a Bushmaster AR 15 .223 or a bolt action 25-06

From the way hull is shaped.

Do a search online on hull design, you'll find many descriptions.

How much thrust on the trolling motor? Also, how can you get the crud off the boat? I am interested in the boat, just want to make sure you can get the scum off the hull.

I don't know how much thrust, I would guess, due to age, approx 40lbs.

To remove crud...go to Walmart but 4 bottles of The Works toilet and bathroom cleaner, plus a empty spray bottle.

Go to carwash, spray cleaner evenly on hull and motor, wait 5 minutes, rinse it off. Where it's hard to remove you can use a plastic brush (long ice scraper w brush works great) and just scrub the cleaner on hull a little.

Beware of fumes, so be sure you're outside or there's some ventilation.

Hull will look almost as new when done. The interior will come clean just with high pressure washer, go over everything (disconnect battery first), you'll be surprised of the results.

Total cost $ 35.00 + 2 hours labor......if it doesn't sell for $ 2,000 I'll do it myself and relist it for $ 2500. Guaranteed it will sell then.

Thers is also a reason why I didn't clean it, I wanted people to see water marks, I am not hiding anything, boat was at dock and took rain water lowering it more into lake. There's NO damage to motor or electrical, everything works, no rot and floor is solid.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
