    This is the inshore center console version with 60HP Merc w/SS prop 24V Motorguide great white trolling motor. It features all composite construction-last forever,no-slap hull design, Lenco elec trim tabs,factory poling platform, 2 livewells-one is a crustacion in rear,spray rails, non skid upper deck, built in alum 12 gal tank,flyline rail is built into front deck-not bolted on like most, 8 rear facing rod tubes (for quick rod change from deck)under the the walk around gunnels-each capable of holding 9ft+fly rods plus 6 vertical on side of center console, also 2 removeable at rear platform, LEDs including cockpit lights, GPS fishfinder, New galv trailer in 08 with full LEDs and foldaway tongue so it fits in the garage. This boat is made for hunting fish. It floats very shallow thanks to the 2 rear sponsons-true 6 inch draft w/2 people. You can fish the flooded grass flats when the reds are tailing. This boat is very capable Rob Fordice won the coveted Gold Cup fly tournament in the 17ft version against all the big money boats such as Hellsbay, Maverick, Dolphin, Silverking, ect.-so if you dont catch fish its not the boats fault!! Its alot of boat for the money small enough to get in and turn around in the creeks. Plus it has timeless styling.  404*376*6711 Jon
    Almost forgot the Stiffy pushpole,pop-up cleat, and that she has a stepped hull for better efficientcy & speed.
    Boat is in SC but can deliver reasonable distances such as Mosquito Lagoon(where me and this boat spent most of our time together) area as long as we can fish

    Just did a compression test last night while I was checking the plugs. It had 125psi+ on all 3 cylinders. It will also have fresh plugs since those were shot.

    That's the nicest 1550 rig I've seen - got every thing that hull needs. I spent a lot of time on a friends in the 10K Islands, Flamingo and Biscayne Bay. Quietest hull I've ever been on, and a suprisingly good ride for its size. Definately an under-appreciated design.

    Thanks Bobber. Stil not exactly sure why am selling it.We fish some big schools of reds(100 plus) in shallow sounds in SC at low tide. Kinda like a big 1-3 foot deep 30 acre pool. And have had the school litterally split around the boat. That's alot of eyes and ears. Very spooky!

    Forgot to add that it has a brand new axle assembly-hubs-bearings and all. I had Bearing Buddy fail and it chewed up the stub axle. So I went ahead and replaced the whole assembly. It also has a fuel water seperator which is important with the ethanol in gas these days.

    Note: the marks on the front of the console is where the latches mount. I had them off for replacement. I have 2 new latches for the front seat and rear deck/hatch cover.

    Did I mention this is a fully cored and bagged 500lb hull!! Everything is cored including the console and even the poling platform! Somebody better hurry and buy this before I change my mind.Because the fishing is about to be insane here in SC. I cannot promise there will not be some blood and guts on it. ;D I have seen Ghenoes go for more than this. I am open to REASONABLE offers. But I do not have to sell it. It would just make it easier and quicker to finance a side project. So dont waste my time with low ball offers. I have got a few already. :mad: There were so few of these out there that the NADA isnt accurate on what the value of this boat is-01 1550 01 merc 60-06 trailer for $4k my ass. ;D You couldnt put a good jon boat together for that. Much less a boat with this many features and build quality. I have seen what others with 30hp motors and faded hulls side console and such sell for mid to low $7 . So I think it is priced in the right range.

    Best of luck to ya Swamp! That's a very nice looking boat.

    I hate to say it though, you'll have to be patient most likely. Boats are not selling well currently and we are leaving the boating season. You have it priced right in my opinion, but have to wait for the right person to come along.

    For all you lowballers that keep refering to NADA saying it only worth $4500 to $5000. Check this out and then go buy a Hells Bay for $5300 !! ;D ;D

    Patience grasshopper! Boat looks clean, price sounds right, it just takes a little more time to sell a boat these days. It's been for sale for 2 weeks, let it sit and the right buyer will come.

    Patience.... :)

    One hell of a deal, and a great looking skiff. Sure wish I had the cash. Good luck with the sale. And you might want to edit your first post, with respect to the captain you mentioned. "Captain Rob Fordyce".
