Muskie Boat??

Recommended Posts

Well the old Alumacraft found a new home and I just sealed a deal on a 91 18' Skeeter deep V powered by a 115 Merc. Anyone else fished out of or owned one if so what are your thoughts. Price is verry right but it's 700 miles away. I'll be picking it up Friday evening.

91 sounds a little old to be buying from 700 miles away, but hey if price point is great... go for it. I have gone down to Iowa and picked up a Nitro for cheap before. Id make sure you check out the cylinders,compression etc. I have been in a Skeeter from that era and it was actually quite nice, alot has changed, but alot has also stayed in line with the older boats.

I know it's along ways to go but it looks nice and priced less than I sold my 84 Alumacaft for, It still NADA books for over the asking price. Not sure what a above average 91 1850 Skeeter sells for around the upper midwest, willing to bet in the $4-$6K range???

If you got a good feeling about it, go for it. If the price is good enough, why not. Those boats were made solid. I have a 1989 150hp merc on a boat I no longer use and it has always worked, and that year was suppose to be garbage compared to the 90 and newer.

    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?
