I am selling my hunting boat because I never use it anymore. I bought this boat in 1998. The title says it is 16 feet long for some reason I thought it was longer. It is really wide at the back and we couldn't flip it even when trying. It comes with a 27hp Mud Buddy surface drive motor. It also comes with an '86 Evinrude 25HP short shaft motor. The Evinrude needs new gaskets, maybe more. It also has an old trolling motor and a Hummingbird fish finder. It was repainted about 6 years ago and still looks almost new (because I never use it). I started to re-carpet it, but quit since I never use it. The trailer is a dilly trailer. It is galvanized and has black paint over the galvanizing. One tire was replaced in Feb 2015. The Mudbuddy fires right up and works great. The Evinrude doen't start. I don't have full pressure in one cylinder. I have an extra carb for the Evinrude. The wood transom was rebuilt right before the boat was painted. It was rebuilt with marine grade plywood that had 6 layers of polyurethane over it before it was painted. I have some random parts and things that will go with the deal.
It has been barn kept all these years. I just pulled it out of the barn and washed it off for the pics. The paint is more of a flat paint and not shinny as seen in the wet pictures.
I have titles for it all except the mud buddy didn't come with one.
I am asking $4500. The boat is located on the east side of Weatherford.

Here is a little more info:
The hull and Evinrude are 1986. The hull is riveted. There is no damage to the hull and I haven't noticed any leaks.
The Mud motor is either a 2002 or 2003 27HP. I have had the mud motor for about 4-5 years and only taken it out about 4-5 times to keep it running. It starts and runs every time I take it out. On the mud motor, the only maintenance I have done was greased the shaft twice and replace the fuel lines and fuel filter. I put less than 5 hours on the motor since I got and it was all open water just driving around.
The Evinrude I rebuilt the carb a couple of times. I put a new carb on it a while back. I replaced the fuel lines, and spark plugs. I replaced the water pump. It sounded funny the last time I had it out when I was just idling across a lake so I shut it off. When I tried to restart it it just cranked and periodically backfired. I was told to replace the head gasket. I did and it seems to have low compression on the lower cylinder. I replaced the gasket again and still the same thing. I gave up and bought the mud motor.
I haven't greased the wheel bearings in a while because it doesn't go anywhere.
