Getting A Jon Boat

Recommended Posts

Ok Guys, I have been offered a 12' Fishmarine Aluminum Jonboat with a Old but serviceable steel 1975 Dilly tilt trailer from a guide aroundhere FOR FREE. Is this a good first boat? The guide said that the previous owner didn't secure it properly to the trailer, so the tire rubbed against the Side of the boat................. How uch would It cost to get this repaired? He said there is a lot of flotation foam in it. There are two center mounted seats in the boat also. He also said that the trailers tires are eventually going to need replaced because of their age, but he said they will hold air. How much am I going to be spending on this boat if you guys had to guess? He said the trailer weighs 250 pounds and is blue.

If the everything free than it's more likely the best first time boat even if required some work.

"The tire rubbed against the side of the boat". Is there any damage? If so, what? You can't do better than free. 2 new tires/wheels are cheap.
