    No trolling motor on the boat, was going to upgrade to a Ipilot, but need to sell. wired and ready for trolling motor.

    The original gas tank has a leak and is not connected to motor. It is still in the hull just not worth fixing. I have a 12 gallon tank hooked up and hoses ran through the hull like its supposed to. I bring a 5 gallon gas tank with me when making further runs and have been fine. I have put a lot of people on fish in this boat.

    Trailer has a few cosmetic issues that can be take care of before pick up. Need to staple carpet back down on one board. Lights on trailer are brand new and functioning properly.

    Boat was just serviced and tuned up and is running like a top.

    If you want to Sea trial the boat call me and we can fish for the day. I am accepting offers and no trades. Contact me via text/call Dallas at (985)373-1923 with any other questions or for more pictures.

    $10,000 OBO

    FWIW I had a 2001 with a leaking tank. I believe it is just something that happened after time due to the placement and way they did the stringers. I had the cap pulled on mine and replaced the tank.

    I regret selling that boat still to this day.

    Having the cap pulled to replace the original tank would be pricey due to labor cost. There is no need to do that considering anyone can run with 17 gallons of gas and that 90 doesn't guzzle gas.

    I'm not sure. It would be something to look into for sure if you were going to fish tournaments out of this boat. I used it for sight fishing south LA red fish on the fly. And I'm planning on getting a bigger boat to guide out of.

    Not to Hijack this threat but it wasn't incredibly expensive, but I also did a complete refit and added things. With purchase price, refit price, and what I sold it for I broke even and revived a great hull. PM me if you are interested.
