Turdship Enterprise

It will be a sad day when the last little mom and pop marina is gone to developers and only the rich will be able to enjoy the waters of Florida.

    I'm half tempted to buy it. I saw it kicking around over the summer out at Steinhatchee and Cedar Key. I don't think it was any speed machine but I saw it being fished regularly. Wonder if you couldn't break the flywheel loose with some penetrating oil and a cheater bar.

    Fish Haid is probably in negotiations as we speak :grin

    LOL!!!! He bought it for $900. Actually, it was $400 plus a beat-up old Ford Ranger. That was about 7? years ago. Without motor though. Doesn't look like he has gotten new tires or worked on trailer.

    If that boat could talk! I dumped it off the trailer at high speed in front of Cypress Station one time! Another time, I let the "sober" guy drive it in CK channel. He sideswiped the steel marker (#34?) where the two channels meet. We were sinking fast! Good thing it was 1/4 mile from the dock.

    Fillet & Release!!!!!!!

    Let's all bombard this guy with Low-Ball offers!

    It sounds like it's been rode hard and put away wet, and caught a lot of fish.

    You can see where Bessent swiped the marker below the name.

    Man that boat caught enough fish to sink it a hundred times over.

    Where's the picture of the ginger kid with a meat clever at on that boat? I still see that image when when I close my eyes.:rotflmao

    You mean "Chuckie"? Unfortunately, he had some difficulty living in society, and is currently a guest of The State. Sad, but true.
