This auction is for a nice freshwater used 17 ft Procraft bass boat complete with a great running engine and trailer that will take you anywhere.  The trailer shown is included in the sale.  The trailer is in great shape and is part of the sale at no extra charge.   We are listing this boat and representing it in completely as-is condition with a fair reserve.  Please read the ad and view the pictures carefully as this boat will be sold to whoever has the high bid at auctions end. We have included 168 large pictures below the ad to show you as much detail as possible as well as a description of condition.  Our description of condition is based on a brief and casual inspection and is only to help you decide its value.  You are welcome to inspect the boat in person if you wish to do so.  It is located in Old Saybrook Ct, 06475 and is available anytime by appointment.

This boat was a New Hampshire trailered freshwater used lake boat since it was bought new.   The original owners kept good care of the boat but are getting too old to use and maintain the boat any longer.  The outboard and trailer all show little corrosion and how well freshwater preserves a boats mechanicals.  It starts and runs well and shifts in and out of gear very smoothly.   We did a compression test (cold) which showed perfect compression in all 6 cylinders (see pictures).  The trim and tilt works perfect and all the gauges work with the exception of the tachometer.  There is a stereo, forward and helm mounted fish finders that all work well.  The original Johnson trolling motor was tested works perfect as well.  The navigation lights, bilge pump, dash indicator lights, chart light, and trim level gauge all work.  We noticed that most everything worked with the exception of the bait pumps filling the wells and the old flasher sonar in the dash. We did not test the forward controls but did notice the bow mounted power trim worked well.  There is a bilge mounted battery charger which was tested and works well.  There are dual batteries and the starting battery is low and should be replaced but the trolling motor battery is strong.  The below deck fuel tank is constructed from plastic which will last forever.   Mechanically the boat looks to be well maintained and very original.  Cosmetically it could use a buff and wax job as the metal flake surfaces are getting very faded.  The carpet is showing its age and could use replacement in some areas or just enjoy the boat as it is.  The decks are solid with the exception of a small area just in front of the console which is very slightly soft.  The transom looks to be rock solid.   There is nothing more than minor age appropriate scratches and dings around the boat.  

We launched and sea tested the boat  yesterday and it was a blast to drive.   The steering is slightly stiff but it is dual cable style and may need a lube.  It starts fast, idles strong and pumps plenty of water.  It was rough  and windy in our river and the boat actually rides very well for a bass style boat.  It jumps on plane and trimmed out it is very fast.  The previous owner stated that it did 70 plus mph.  We did not have a gps to know exactly how fast it ran but it sure feels like all of 65mph if not more.  Overall the boat is a pleasure to run and handles very well. 

The trailer is the original and is in great shape.  The frame, axle, tires and springs are in good solid shape. The tires hold air well, there is a good spare tire, all the lights work and the bearings are fine. We towed this boat to our shop over 160 miles with no problems.  The pictures are current and the boat is being sold as is in the condition shown.  You are welcome to come to our shop and inspect the boat anytime prior to auctions end.  We are located in Old Saybrook, Connecticut and open by appointment.

 At the end of the auction the winning bidder will need to send us a $100.00 Pay-Pal deposit and contact us within 24 hours by phone or email to discuss payment/pick up with us

 We have state of New Hampshire registration certificates for the boat and trailer ready to transfer.  The boat will need to be paid for in full and picked up within one week of auction ending unless you have made other arrangements with us.  We are available to deliver it anywhere for $2.50 per hauled mile if needed.  Please feel free to contact us by e-mail or call (860)510-2623 with any questions.   The auction will end on Sunday at 9:15pm EST.  Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
