  • I got another Starcraft, SF 14 LW

    Well, I was casually looking and happened to come upon a CL ad last night just after it was posted. I called and it seemed to good to be true. I went after work to check it out today and took it home. The ad didn't show the inside, just the outside and the motor, and not knowing much about these styles I was very surprised when I got there. Its a 1995 Boat with a 2003 Mercury 9.9 2 stroke. An older guy owned it and said the motor hasn't even burned 6 gallons since new. It was used once a year. Anyway, here it is:





    My wife was thrilled!



    The boat also came with an electric trolling motor, new battery, galvanized Karavan trailer with spare, a full matching canvas cover and bows, lights, built-in live well, and paddle. Not bad for 14 Benjamin's!

    Get the &^*% out of here. Seriously. You got that for HALF it's worth. That's a friggin' $1000 motor. Also the cleanest small tinnie I've seen. Un-friggin'-believable.

      That's how ya do it, DJ. Call and deal as soon as you see the ad. The rig looks great. I guess the resto is a wash and tire black - If it even needs it. I hope you took the mask off by now cause you stole it!

        So, ya like it eh? LOL. I thought his asking price was fair, so I didn't try to chew him down...

        There is one weird thing about it, on the outside and on the registration it's labeled as a 14' SF LW, but the capacity plate says 16 SF LW. Kind of a bad oops by Starcraft having the capacity and max HP of a larger boat on a smaller boat.

                  Way to go Dave. Looks brand new. Nice you found something to play on the water. The two stall boat house looks great.

                      Can I trailer with the trolling motor clamped on or not?



                      Or do I just lay it in the bottom of the boat?

                          Outstanding deal, great find, well done. Shortest dry dock stay EVER! Less then 6gals of gas have ever been through the carbs, since 2003? What's that, less then 2/3's of a gallon per year? That's a short trip, even only once per year, and even on a 9.9hp. Guess it was all up river & drift back....

                            Yeah, could be BS for all I know. Story was one trip a summer to Pickeral Lake (Michigan). I does look it though...

                              Keep the story, BS or not, makes it an even bigger killer deal, so much the better. Everybody will be W/ ENVY!.....

                              It'll be your 'old, been in the garage for years, 1950's chevy, listed for sale at $500', and then it turns out to be a mint 1957 corvette convertible...
