This has been a great boat for me but I just don't fish the kind of water this boat excels in. This is a southern Oregon, low gradient river boat. Washington just doesn't have enough of the kind of water this boat needs. It has seen the Cowlitz and Chehalis but these are not my favorite rivers. I'm going for a bay boat. I need a v hull and though the Sportster isn't a flat bottom, it's a tough ride in chop.
As many of you know, this boat has seen many modifications in its past. I had a thread on the floor, interior paint and wrap a few years ago. I'll include a bunch of those pictures to remind newer members of the rebuild.
175 sportjet; 372 hours
9.9 yama kicker MAYBE 50 hours.
If you won't be trolling, I'll keep it and put it on my next boat. ( changing price accordingly )
TR-1 auto pilot ( same thing )
New floor, Thermalite.
New dog house; Thermalite
Interior paint is basically truck bed liner. Not sure the name of the stuff.
Wrapped by Green Butt Skunk. AKA Brad. Coho Design.
It has an AM/FM radio/CD player
older Lowrence 337 fish finder
Lee Lock anchor system for Columbia or Can for plug anchors.
I have 2 Mantus anchors and a Columbia rocking horse.
2 slugs, a 25# and a 40#.
Wired for down riggers but you probably won't need those on the Willamette or Wilson.
Here are the pictures;
Before the rebuild, On the Cowlitz
After the rebuild. At Brads shop
Disregard the Honda, sold it years ago. I replaced it with the Yami....
This shows the nice, clean dog house and floor. Will NEVER rot.
Here's the Yami with custom built kicker bracket. Whodat towers in Olympia built this for me.
OK, I cleaned out my photo gallery a while back. Now I can't seem to upload more pics. The browse button is gone. If someone knows the secret handshake for uploading new pics to the gallery, PM me. I have tons more pics.
