I bought a starcraft 12ft jon boat at a yard sale .I tried to get nos. for it at DMV, they said I had to have the year it was made, and what it cost when it was new. How do I get this info? Iknow it has set around for at least the last 20 yrs. All i want to do is put a trolling motor on it and go fishing. The serial no. is 64-8207, it is a starcraft pram.
I just found out it is a 1964. What would this cost when it was new?
I’m about to buy an inflatable boat (not decided about size and shape yet but this is not the point right now) and since I’m new to boating I’m a bit confused. I made some researches and that’s what I found, the outboard motors are VERY expensive, 900+ it’s toooo much for me right now and trolling motors are not only not powerful (this is not a big problem since I don’t need high speed) but they used to brake down too often.
So what should I choose and what should I do? Maybe there’s some good brands? Oh and btw I’m fishing in the ocean in bays (not open ocean).
I need a boat for fishing on the rivers and lakes. can anybody suggest something that would work for that. and what i need to do to get started? I was thinking of a john boat with a little outboard and maybe a trolling motor. should think of something else? any suggestions would be helpful. I am not looking for a big powerful boat just something to tinker around on the lake.
I have a friend that would sell his older 14′ flat bottom jon boat with 5hp two stroke with trolling motor for $250. I was wondering if it would be under powered when fishing on the Mississippi.
I just bought a 16 foot old town flat back canoe and i have a thirty pound thrust electric trolling motor for it. I was wondering what they are like if i can stand up and fish hard on it. And also can i trick it out. thank!!!
