I have been interested in getting a micro skiff to compliment my bigger boat.  I am hoping to find a person with the right skiff to trade for a 2005 polaris predator and trailer.  I apologize if this isn't the right forum for this post up front.  I can provide pictures of the quad if there is interest and ask that you would reply with the same.  The quad is in excellent condition and the trailer is in good shape , I would like to find a skiff in comparable condition.  Please reply or pm me for more info.  I am in the NPR/ Tampa Bay area.

thanks for looking

bump - guys is there any other place I can post this that might draw some interest, I really want to get my hands on a smaller boat so I can sneak out to fish more as I find time. I know this is an awesome community and if you all have any suggestions for other forums that I might get some interest I would really appreciate it , I would post to craiglist but I find in my dealings there that it is a very mixed bag.  Thanks in advance ;)

You're on the right track here, but you've only had it posted for a couple days, give it some time. Also try over at the CG forum, and the FS forum. Lots of hunters on the FS forum, they may be able to help you out there.

For a trade like that, I'd say Craigslist, and Florida Sportsman.

yeah I am gonna probably avoid craiglist , probably any number of people here who have used craigslist will tell you its a pretty mixed bag.  I have been thinking about it some and in honesty I am not sure that even this is the right place, I kind of feel like most people here have there #1 hobby ( fishing or hunting ). Trail riding on a machine like this might be too much for alot of people here as well. My guess is that most of the people here are about my age and a weekend of riding takes about a week to recover from.  The flip side of it is I probably have about all told 11.5k invested and while I know toys like this and boats that you really do take a hit no matter how new you keep them.  But I am really happy you all have been supportive and maybe I will reach my target audience here, someone who might be in need of a change.

You can try in the off roading forums. I know there's an ATV forum I was a member of a while back.

My $.02...Sell the Polaris and then look with cash. Those trade deals are hard to find. Someone will always feel like they lost out, and it's a coin toss on whether or not it would be you. Just my opinion, sell it out right and then buy the skiff you want. Craigslist is difficult, but you can sell stuff on there if you filter out the bs.

If you don't want to post your set up on craigslist then just go lurking around craigslists for sellers that are considering trades. I actually see alot of people on there that specifically want dirtbikes or ATVs for their skiffs. Sick predator set up by the way ;D
