If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

Not true. It is well below blue book. I would rather just deal with people who are serious [edited]

That's a good way to get it sold... The d/a comments are what keep people seeing your post otherwise with no info like price or location it will be on page two by this afternoon never to be seen again.

Your are right Goosehunter, thanks for the reminder. I totally forgot to include location. Boat is in Greeley and price is $7,900 (now the experts can tell me that it is overpriced on the forum instead of via email which is what I was trying to avoid). I do appreciate your input though. Low blue book is $8,535 and average blue book is $9,700. I should be asking more based on its condition and those values but I have a new boat on hold and want to sell this. All trailer wiring harnesses replaced last week during servicing and trade evaluation inspection by boat shop. New Dexter axle with EZ Lube hubs which is way better than the original Karavan axle. Motor starts and runs great and compression readings were 95 and 98 which means nothing to me. I just know that is good. Hull and welds are sound no leaks at all. Livewell pump is new, previous one went out last year so I replaced it. 16.5!feet in length, 82 inch beam, very stable. Great boat, have caught a ton of fish out of it. Just time to upgrade to something with full windshield and bigger motor. Sorry for my previous post El Jefe and Goose. I can be grumpy at 5:30 in the morning unless I am up that early to go fishing.

Thatís a nice little boat at a ok price. Should sell in no time in the spring. I like that floor layout.

I sold my 2008 FM165 in 2017 for $9500. Only difference was I had upgraded Lowrance Elite 5 up front and HDS 9 at console. Miss that boat, was great for Colorado and caught a lot of fish with it. For anyone that wants an affordable, stable, great all around boat , I would recommend this one!

Put it up on craigslist. You'll reach a broader audience. You can upload more pictures there too.
