Hey Guys,

 

You all have been a great help so far and I have another question.  I moved onto an electric motor only, relatively small lake.  I am looking for a boat that I could fish with 2-3 people in it.  I have two boats I am considering.  I am on a very small budget.  I have already bought padded chairs, 55lb thrust transom motor, fish finder, etc.  I am just looking for a boat (I don't really want a trailer cause I have no space and boat will stay in the lake at my house).

 

One option is a 15 ft 1985 Starcraft aluminum boat (white and black boat below) that is in good shape, has padded seats (so I can return mine) and overall looks good.  He wants $750 with the trailer (which is in good shape as well).

 

Other option is a 16 footer that has what looks to be an old Mercury 9.8 hp motor (see picture), old bow mount 30 lb thrust foot pedal trolling motor (not sure its value but does work), and modded flipping deck for only $550.  No trailer and the boat is much more dirty/beat up than the other.  I am torn between the two.  See the pics below and let me know your thoughts.  I think both are unpassable deals just trying to make the right decision here!

 

Also if I bought the one with the Mercury outboard any relative idea of what that would go for (if it did work or if it didn't)?  Thanks for your help!  Need to decide today!

And also a trailer in good shape what does that go for, holds the 15 foot boat?  Just curious the range.

If you wanted a cheap boat go with the one with the motor and sell it.  It would probably bring $300 or so if it ran.
