A 1973 Power Cat. 18’, Stick steer. With a 1988 40 h.p. Evinrude Motor. And Trolling Motor. Gonna need a little TLC. But not bad for $350.00 I will get some pics this weekend. It's basically across the street from me but it's to muddy to get my truck down the "alley" to get it pulled out. A buddy is bringing over his 4 wheeler with a tow hitch to get it for me.

Gotta rush to get it lake ready. Crappie will be moving up in the creeks in a week or two. :thumbsup:

I know. He was asking 500.00 got'em down a little. I took my boss with me to look at it. He is an avid fisherman. He said either you buy it right now or I am. :D I could sell the motor tomorrow for 500+ easy.

It was their Angler Model. Just like this one.

That's the problem. Swarm Calls and Creeks are busy at the same time!! Gonna be taking swarm calls while fishing. Hook up the boat go get some bees at dark, cleaning fish after that. Best of both worlds. :)

I've heard that these are the best two days for a boat owner...

1) The day you buy it...

2) The day you sell it...

Hope it works out well for you. Have fun!

Right now it is called the Creekster. Will are going to drive it up in the shallow creeks and wear them out, and use my buddies center console boat for the main lake fishing. I am currently putting in a new floor and doing some cosmetic work to it. So I know what you mean B.O.A.T. :p

How about we come up with a cool name for the boat. Has to be Bee Realted. We will come up with the coolest names and then narrow it down or do the winning name with a poll, or something like that. . I will sticker the boat with the winning name and then it shall remain named. Until we change it again. :)

Swarm Caster!

Boat- A hole in the water that you fill with money.

That reminds me I need to order a new prop for my boat.

It looks like it might have some Eagle Rims too. Early-Mid 90's style. :thumbsup:

Mrs. Hambone approved too. She like the striping.

Looks like the next of kin came to Lake Geneva for a visit! :lpf:




Took this today. Had to circle around the block to take it. Would love to see the guy trying to get in or out of it!

I have no idea, but I'm keeping my camera on the ready. :D This truck looked really funny from the front as the tires were quit narrow.
I was talking to Dennis M. yesterday about pickups and he said it's common where he lives for diesel owners to modify their trucks so that they belch out a big cloud of smoke when they shift. Funny, I saw one doing just that today! The truck was fairly new and all tricked out. Why? :eek:

I don't have any before pics that I can find. But I gutted the floor, had a buddy of mine build me some stainless seat bases, couple carb kits, some rewiring, and I am just about good to go. Same guy that built my seats built me some rod holders. Crappie are getting hot and I am fishing a catfish tourney in it in a few weeks.
