    Guys i Hate to do this but i need to sale my Traveler Aluminum Bass Boat these boat's are Made in Arkansas and are ALL Welded boat has Aluminum Floors unlike some Aluminum Boats that use Wood floors these boats are made to LAST. I have had this Boat for 6 are 7 years and this boat has all ways ran like new the 40HP Evinrude has all ways started the first time you hit the key. I took off the VRO stuff and just Mix the oil my self a Good friend of mine that has been a Boat Mechanic for Over 30 years told me to do this and the motor would out live me so i did like he told me and have never had a days trouble out of the motor.

    The Boat comes Ready to fish with a 50LB 12/24Volt Trolling Motor and a Front Graph.

    Now for the BAD the boat needs New seats the front seat is in OK shape but all others need replaced other then that the Boat is ready to go fishing it don't look the Best but it fishes just as good as a $20,000 boat

    I am Asking $2800.00 and will not come down much on the Price this is a GREAT Boat and i am not gone to just give it a way if you would like more info give me a call 870-223-6011. THANKS

    The motor is a 86 are 87 same year as the boat and the motor dose not have a lot of run time on it the guy i got it from only took it out 1 are 2 times a year and was an Older guy. The first couple of years i had the boat i fished all most every day but i only live 1/2 mile from the lake and would just fish my end of the lake most of the time . And no the motor has no power tilt and trim or assisted lift but the motor is not heavy at all.
