Default WTB Aluminum with trailer

Anyone have a salmon/trout trolling rig for sale?
Looking for a 17-18’ aluminum in excellent condition with canvas protection from wind and weather. Prefer newer rather than older (2008 and up)
Something light and trailerable similar to this:

Maybe its because I'm bored and waiting for the ice to melt and season to open. But I have to ask. What does WTB stand for. I been around boats for over 60 years, but don't recognize that abreviation.

Also (just being nosey)where was the photo taken?

The photo is from a craigslist ad that Greene’s Marine in Hooksett has posted along with all their current for sale inventory. I would go that route but at $36k+
I’ll keep looking “pre-owned”

I spent 8,500.00 plus repairs and fixing things but we fish just about every weekend ....... and he knows how to do these repairs now.

36k buys a lot of repairs.

When I was a kid, my father would take ANY shortcut to reduce time off of the 6-6 1/2 hour ride to the lake.
The Hooksett toll was $.25 coming up the highway. If you were "Getting off at Hooksett", it was $.10
Traveling down around/over? the old train bridge, and by Robie's Store, we would go up (I think I remember) Granite Street. Almost no homes on Granite- came out to route 3A. Taking a left on 3A, Greene's Marine was on the left- with a USAF jet fighter sitting out in front of the place! This was the first sign that we were getting near.
Rumor had it that, back around that time, Guy Lombardo used to run a BIG performance boat on the lake!
And, yes, I could catch a lot of craw-fish to sell as bait! (Ouch!)

Great story,,,,, and it is stuff I remember even, the roads we drove on. Very cool of you to bring it forward. The tokens story ........ I think they were A & B style tokens with holes in them and they were different sizes I recall.

I can't believe you remember this.

Melvin Village Marina has, or likely still has a 2013 (bought new 2015) Crestliner 17.5 ft alum vee hull with 2 stroke 115 hp & full canvas and 3 depth/gps listed for 19.9 k. Nice seats too (4). Canvas never used. Ask how I know

Had a smaller Starcraft before the Crestliner. It was a very sturdy boat.

Craigslist has a white 18' Lund fisherman adventure 2001 with a Merc 115 efi 4-stroke and a Merc 15 4-stroke kicker with electric down-riggers, windshield, bimini top, fish-finder, boat cover, 3-seats and a galv trailer w/ spare tire in Maynard, Mass ........... for $6500.

It looks like a winner ..... probably well maintained ............. 503 hours ....... and it just got posted three hours ago.

Doesn't say if it was stored in a garage?

Well hit on a boat https://www.powerboatlistings.com/view/63153

I am thinking FLL made that post up...or the seller sold it in record time (hours)
And he is not responding to request for the link...

I think you are correct. I can not even find a cached link. Not even a hint of any kind.

When I went back to that post to double check the 503-hours number, at about 10:45 or so, the ad was no longer there. So, the ad had maybe four or five good photos and was present from like 10-10:45, last night, and then it disappeared.

It had two Scotty electric down-riggers and an unused fourth seat holder probably to make room for using the down-riggers, and a full windshield with a walk-through center door section.
............

Not knowing anything about why it was removed just creates a big question on it?

Who knows ...... is possible he got so many responses that he removed the ad ...... or maybe he will wait a week and re-post at a price two thousand dollars higher ..... or maybe he wants to keep it?

It looked in very good shape from the good quality photos and his ad comments were well written. It immediately caught my attention as an 18' bright white, aluminum Lund. Think the interior was gray? And coming from Maynard, Mass, is it a fresh water or a salt water boat?

Made even worse when we were trailering my dads Century Resorter and what could best be described as a homemade trailer behind an old Pontiac Bonneville convertable.

My mom I think would try to pump the breaks on her side of the car on that (narrow at the time) Granite Street hill.

Great memories including the bridges you also mentioned. One of them got (blown up/ demolished) a few years ago. I think it is a foot bridge now.

Sometimes we'd stop at Robies Store and get the rock solid ice cream bars that came in just a paper sleeve (wish I could remember the make).

Eventually, some would end up on the floor in the back seat (think- yelling from the front seat )!

Something at Trexler’s Marina. {Just an FYI} a little pricey for a 25 hp.

Thanks! I had seen that and the side console makes a full canvas arrangement less plausible...therefore the need for a full windshield arrangement.

what is your budget range? this one is a bit over priced in my opinion, and a bit under powered, but these fishmasters are highly prized trolling boats.

I've probably looked at that one a dozen times...

It's more of a situation of "when I see it, I will know"
As I said before I am picky and want something "turn key" so even though the older boats may be adequate, they don't meet my criteria for "turn key" as I see it. Budget is not the only deciding factor as I can afford something nice but am looking for that special deal that is "out there somewhere." This gives me the advantage of not being in any hurry and not worrying if I miss out on fishing in the meantime.

Some of the older boats I have seem for sale on Craigslist have newer outboards on them.

Four stroke motors, especially the first generation, are heavier than the two stroke models that were originally installed.

Choosing to install the same horse power means more weight.

Right or wrong, there is a perception that a replacement 75hp four stroke motor does not provide the same power as the 75hp two stroke motor it replaces.

Some owners have chosen to install a motor with more hp to try to keep the performance the same.

That can add even more weight.

This can lead to trouble!

1) More weight on the transom can cause handling and self bailing issues.
2) An older boat may have compromised wood in the transom leading to flexing and or failure.

Most motor mfg's use a common chassis for a series of motors with different hp ratings.

For example, a 90hp and a 115hp may share the same chassis and therefore almost the same weight.

It is wise to learn where the target hp fits in to this scheme.

Do you want a "light" 115hp or the "heavy" 90hp?

There is also the pesky detail of the USCG limitations placcard.

Boats that are designed from the start to accommodate the heavier four stroke motor should not have these issues.

Yup...seen those too! If you are looking “for me” no need as I have seen everything in the northeast at this point and am branching out to down the east coast...probably won’t move on anything until all this crap settles down anyway.
Thank you!
