14 Aluminum v-hull Jon Boat with an 18 HP Mercury XD 2-stroke outboard. Includes the trailer it is sitting on in the pictures, a Minn Kota Endura 30-lbs thrust/12 volt trolling motor (rear mount), a Garmin Striker 4 with 3.5″ GPS Fishfinder with a Chirp Traditional Transducer, and a 12-volt battery.
I believe the hull was manufactured in the early 1970s. The motor is a model from the mid-1980s (I think it’s a 1985 or 1986). It is a manual start (pull start). I can send you video of it running.
The motor runs well as far as I can tell (I am not mechanically inclined). It works great when I take the boat out, but I haven’t been out for over six months. I had the carburetor rebuilt in late 2018. I also had a new prop installed. I haven’t put more than a few hours on both. The cowling is intact and looks decent for its age, but the cowling hinge is missing (so the cowling is not affixed to the outboard). I can send you video of the motor starting and running.
I bought this combo in the summer of 2018 and just haven’t been able to get it out much. I’m selling because I can’t find time to get out on the water, and because I don’t have a great place to store the boat. On that note, please be aware that I have stored the boat outside since I’ve had it. I have a cover for the hull and a separate cover for the outboard, but they don’t completely protect from the elements we have in Georgia (humidity, torrential rain, etc.). The cover also doesn’t fit over the trailer.
Please feel free to send me an email if you have any questions, or if you’d like to see more pictures. I live in Decatur in work during the week – I’m happy to meet here if you’re okay looking at it without taking it out on the water (I have earmuffs and can start the motor). Otherwise I can meet at a boat launch near Atlanta, but only on weekends.
