I have seen quite a few boats for sale on craigs list for between $1400 and $2500. The only thing is that I know there are some at a the higher level that are willing to come down, they just need to be haggled. I dont feel like haggling. I have $1500 maybe $1750 if its a steal. I know there are alot of people in need of money, including myself. I am out of work, but I have saved a little money and would be willing to eat like crap for awhile to get a fishing boat.


So ideally I would like a 14'- 16' , aluminum, fishing boat with motor and trailer.

I have seen deals like these, currently on craigslist,
I am just curious whats available on here.

there are other obvious differentiations which I am sure will come about , so those will play a role in the process of deciding.

either respond on here or email me at [email protected]

I will give it some time and see what either comes in or I find myself.


And yeah I know this should of been posted somewhere else, but there is most traffic here.

Good luck with your search. There's tons of boats like the one you mention sitting behing garages and in people's back yards just waiting to be picked up. If I were you, I'd even post notes on bulletin boards like what you see at Gander Mtn, gas stations, sporting goods stores, your gym, whatever.

Sometimes just going for a few hours driving your car along waterfront property you can find people with boats on their driveways for sale, that you won't find in the paper or online. If you got the time for that, it's a good idea as well.

Easy now. We've been over this more than a few times now. It's reports and "tips." If a guy needs advice, or is looking for something, or some info related to fishing, then it can stay here. There's a few "boat" threads going on between here and the Fishin Hole and they could really go in either one. Here a guy is looking for a boat, and he acknowledges it doesn't quite fit here, but it gets the most views. This is where a mod isn't a robot and can say, "the dude needs help finding a boat so he can go fishing, so let's leave his thread alone." He's not selling anything and he's gotten several "tips" on where to find fishing boats for sale.

This is one reason why alot of us just wanted it to be "fishing" and then anything fishing related could go in here without getting folks in a tizzy just because it's not a fish/date/place/time/bait/depth.

Well Ive increased my budget to $2500 for the right boat. You know the first couple weeks of not eating isnt so bad. Hopefully I get a boat soon so I can start spending money on food


[email protected]

email if you have a boat for sale ( aluminum, wide, motor, trailer )

I know to some this may disapoint them that I am on here posting this. If it really bothers you find me a boat

You are quick to complain, yet I notice you don't have much advice to offer. If you dont like it, the go somewhere else.
