    Gearing up to sell my 17.8.  It’s a 2002 with a 60 Merc 4 stroke.  Center console without the attached jump seat.  The gas tank is newer and was replaced by the original owner; I am the second owner.  Boat runs well and is in great shape.  The trailer is starting to show some wear but works just fine.  I replaced the axel last year with a new one from Ramlin. The carpet on the bunks could stand to be replaced.

    I have full service records of everything that has been done to the boat from the first owner as well as myself.

    Both sponsons are plumed as livewells and both are working.

    VHF is hardwired in the center console on a custom starboard shelf.

    Garmin 441s was replaced this spring and is still under warranty.

    Both of the starting batteries are mounted under the back seats and the 2 trolling motor batteries are mounted in the front hatch.  The charger is hardwired into the front hatch for ease of charging.  All of the batteries are relatively new.

    I am not planning to sell the boat with the trolling motor (72lb iPilot) or the push pole (24’ Carbon Marine) but it is negotiable.   I still have the original Motor Guide trolling motor and mounting bracket that I am happy to part with.

    This 17.8 has done everything that I wanted it to do I am just moving into a bigger boat.  I’m not fishing skinny enough, often enough, to warrant holding on to this boat.

    I am working on getting the pictures up.  In the meantime, I'd be happy to text or email some pics to anyone interested

    $24,000

    Realistically, it's a 34-36 mph boat. Waxed and light I've seen 39. From the back of the trim tabs to the nose of the trailer is 21'8".

    Please let me know if you have any more questions. Feel free to call. 843.367.1474
