URGENT! I need feedback on this boat!

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking a purchasing a new (to me) boat and would like your feedback as to whether it's a decent deal. Here's the specs:

Alumacraft 1998 Tournament Pro 170. I don't know if it's a CS or not. What's the difference? Anyway, it's powered by a Yamaha 4-stroke 115 hp motor, which is a 2000 yr model, has a 1998 Yamaha 9.9 hp 4-stroke elec. start kicker, 24 volt Minnkota Maxxum trolling motor, 2 gel cell batteries which are supposed to be the new good kind which he claims are $150 apiece, on-board charger, 2 Lowrance x-75 graphs, Shorelander bunk trailer, Eagle gps, custom cover, 3 props of which two are stainless, and more that I can't remember right now.

I haven't seen it yet, but he claims it's in great shape. He's asking $14,000. How does that sound? Thanks for the feedback.

Rod

I own a '99 T-Pro 170CS. Sounds like this one is a CS (console) too. That is a great price! I love my rig. I have a 115 Johnson and Honda kicker. Wish I had the Yammy 4-strokes on mine....buy it!!

Rockin',

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Your very first post. Who says you're rockin' anyway? I've noticed that you've been mentioning the forum info. more lately, does this mean that you're going to quit being a silent observer and join the dialog?
Sounds pretty unanimious about the boat in question- better get on that quick!

Hey Bro,

It's clear that you're not up on your internet lingo. The word is lurker, not silent observer ;-)

Anyway, I'm working on it. I'll have to check and see if I still have those 140 C-notes hidden under the mattress.

Gosh Dave, I appreciate the offer, but I will have to politely decline. I wouldn't want to put you out at all and have that weighing on my mind.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
