I have a really nice custom built by Welbilt Aluminum 2017 ( BIG ) flat bottom boat and a Honda 2015 20 hp outboard with power tilt and electric start up for trade. I ordered and purchased the boat through Shipp's Marine in Gladewater. I purchased the motor new from Water Moccasin Boats in Stonewall Louisiana. I have not used the boat in probably a year and a half so as a result the carb needs cleaning. It will fire off and run but won't stay running. The motor has pretty low hours on it and you will be able to see that by looking at the paint on the lower unit and prop, it has the original prop on it. I did look into just buying a new carb and put it on myself rather than taking it to a dealer, and a new carb is around $250.00. I started the process of taking the carb off and I decided with my lack of mechanical skills I better leave that to someone that knows what they are doing, all I did was get the carb cover off and said, nope I'm not going any further, so I put the carb cover back on and decided to trade as is or take it to dealer and have it done if need be. There is some paint peeled off the plastic mid section of the motor probably due the sun or inadequate paint job from the factory. You might think it's too small of a motor for this boat but you will be surprised how it performs. I had the boat custom built with a short transom for short shaft motor. The length of the boat being as long and wide as it is makes it self planing, there is no struggle and bow rising up to get up on plane. Im sure it runs over 20 miles a hour with one to two people in it, of course slower if you load it down with people and gear. I would like to keep the trailer it sits on for my other boat, but might let it go with the right trade. I have hauled it on my 16' flatbed trailer a couple of times to put it in or take it out of the lake here on Caddo. If you bring a trailer we can just launch it at one of the boat ramps and put it on your trailer. Just for reference, combined I paid somewhere in the range of $9,000 give or take for the boat and motor.
Here is what I am looking to trade for, a 16' to 20' cargo trailer that is in really good shape. I am not looking to trade for anything else. I have a need right now for a cargo trailer and that's why Im offering this up for trade. If I don't get a good trade offer for a cargo trailer I will carry the boat to my dealer I bought it from and get the carb cleaned or replaced and just sell it out right and probably buy a new cargo trailer. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
