After selling my Hydrasport, then my dargel to fund a divorce, i am finally going to be able to go fishing in the bay again!!
I had a guy sell me a Carolina skiff 2180, 1994 model, CHEAP, DIRT CHEAP!!! No motor, axle is broke, trailer is flat out junk, but i will get that done, HOPEFULLY, as far as the motor, i have a '92 evinrude 225hp, the boat is rated for a 100hp. OUGHT TO BE FUN!!
Those of you with one of the older skiffs, what kind of performance do you think i'll see?

well, i got her home, unfortunatly, i lost half of the axle on the way. Now i have some serious work to do, other than rigging her out.
i have removed all of the stains with a product from wall mart called "star-brite instant hull cleaner", the stuff works like a charm!!! spray on, wash off.

i wish i could make an offer, my current situation will not allow me to do that.
For time being the 200 i have will make do.

I have a 70 HP Johnson with all controls for center console available. Has tilt and trim and everything works.
A decent offer will take all.

That will be a great boat when complete.

I know where you can pick up a rebuilt Merc 60 Bigfoot in Alvin with controls. :D
