219F Stratos for sale, *SOLD*

Recommended Posts

Random guy

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.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon. 
    • mrpike1973
      Nice Crappie!
    • Rick G
      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
