Looks like you got it done. Did it not work out for bow fishing? I noticed you got it for sale on Craigslist.

There is a 17ft bass tracker that my neighbore is selling. Perfect condition Better than perfect price. I don't really want to sell the Duracraft , I just posted it to keep my options open for later. Doesn't hurt to advertise right? I don't think anyone will be calling anytime soon. I might have asked a little high on the price- what do you think - was it reasonable?

Not to burst your bubble but yes, you asking price of $3400 (IMO) on CL Austin is way too steep.

What do you think a good asking price would be on craigslist for this type of boat?

Don't want to be insulting, and certainly don't want to make ya upset but $1500 is about top dollar for that rig.

#-o I have more than that in the re-build- looks like i'll be keeping this one for a while. These fix-ups are not as cheap as I thought. Yall know what I'm saying?

maybe some one will entertain me with an offer one of these days.... I really like this bass tracker my neighbore has- 17ft alum/ the rig is well cared for - 88 w/ 89 70hrs motor- beats the hell out of my 4hrspwr.... oh well I'll just keep prayin [-o<
