    Default Funny looking boat.

    Some people would sell anything. I'm not sure how they figured out the hp rating. LOL> The ad says:

    For sale 15 foot flat bottom home made fiberglass boat made from a roof top fiberglass mold great on the water no leaks can take up to a 6 horsepower outboard. 200 dollars.




    As in people, there comes a time in your life when you realize what boat will always matter, what boat does matter, & what boat never did. So don't worry about the boats from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future. .

    Okay - I've seen things like this in TN too, and here's the question I have for these types of folks: Why disconnect the ambulance lights? You're going to draw attention to yourself in a concocted boat like that ... and I'll even give you some props for creativity ... but why not go the full distance and make the thing flash?

    Dunno if I'd buy it, but I'd go for a ride.

    I guess if it gets to hot out you can always open the windows for a little fresh air.
    Of those who receive good advice, only the wise will profit from it.

    If you need it....Get it
    If you want it....Wait
    If you have it....Flaunt it

    Ok, guys.....I'll concede that it took an......ummmmm....."inventive" imagination to put that together, but let's also be realistic. The things what......6' wide, is almost totally flat-bottomed, so will draft very shallow, and be stable as hell.
    I can tell you that the local river here is terribly low at this time, so........you do the math.

    I suggest all it really needs is a few more accessories and a nice coat of paint, and it will be reasonably presentable.
