$11500 OBO Left myself a good amount of room for negotiations due to extreme low-ballers (put in more $$$ into this boat recently...hydraulic cylinder, 3 new batteries, new trailer boards and carpet, Boyesen Reeds).

***Call 214-790-3646 and ask me any questions you want (no scammers - don't waste your time...I am on to every trick in the book). - Seriously will make a great deal this weekend...but will not budge much as the weeks go by. Best deal if someone buys this tomorrow, or test rides it tomorrow, says they want it and hands me cash before the end of next weekend. I won't play games...great boat for the money I am willing to let her go for!!! - thanks for looking (JOHN) ***Check out page 3 for more pics and another link on this boat.

It is oil gas mix (took out oil pump so don't have to worry about that going out and seizing up a piston...or worse). All cylinders are new Vertex oversized pistons used in the rebuild. The core was in great shape and cylinders honed 15 thousandths only (smooth like a baby's rear end). Fuel injectors were all cleaned and optimized to max capacity. Would love to keep her but I bought a center console so that I can have more people on my boat.

Tandem axle trailer. Digital display (everything works but the speedo). Top cap is faded a good bit, but should come out nice with a good light buff, wax and polish. Bench seat in superb shape, carpets in superb shape. Has two lean seats --- up front and at the rear of the boat. Just ordered two new smoked windscreens for both consoles and they arrived today (driver's and passenger's side). Will install in next couple of weeks.

Has Hamby's Keel Guard (takes worry about beaching boat when necessary). Tires on trailer are in superb shape. All lights on trailer are in working order. New water pump, lower unit oil change in May of this year, and also all new fuel lines. Has two - 25 Gallon Fuel tanks.

Power tilt at motor and at steering wheel. Hydraulic steering. Motorguide 82 lb. thrust foot pedal 24V trolling motor. Recessed foot pedal. Has a Hot Foot for speed control.

Transom is super sturdy. Floors are solid all throughout the boat. No leaks. Live well and bilge pumps in working order. Plenty of storage on this setup. Did I mention it is a dual console? Well, it is a dual console.

***All other pics are on page 3 of this post.


Serious buyers can PM me with questions. I'd be more than happy to lake test on Lake Fork - for those that are serious and in the market for a boat like this. Just PM me with your contact info. and I can respond with mine. BASSCAT PANETERA II (one of the fastest and well respected manufacturers out there). Boat is 19 foot 8 inches long. Boat and motor are TX tagged and registered. Titles in hand and in my name. Thanks for looking!

Added more pics of the rebuild. Have several PM's and replied to everyone that contacted me. Have one gentleman that has first crack at it after we lake test it on the 14th (he is coming from Waco and was first to set a time with me). I have some else I promised second crack at it if the deal doesn't go through for some reason...but I would imagine the first person that lake tests it will snatch her up! I will contact those that I promised second and third crack at it via PM either way if the first gentleman buys it on the 14th, or does not. I won't waste anyone's time. Just wanted to keep everyone filled in that is all hot and heavy for this sweet BassCat just in case you are not in the top 3 on my list to look at it. Just wanted to be fair in case you see something else out there.

Don't understand why you would put this up after I called you the same day you posted and I left my info. and then you called me and we spoke Friday. Anyways...Jerry, we spoke.

How did you get my cell to call me Friday if I never reached out to you? Plus you message above says for me to reach out to you when I return and I indicated I don't return until Aug. 13th late in the day...but I gave you some additional information anyways and my cell (which you called and I answered --- and we spoke --- you lose track of what boats you are chasin' down?).

Just don't know why you call me out (when there is a PM feature) when I explain I am tied up with a new job and am away at training and you told me to get back to you when I get back...sorry didn't get back to you fast enough. Maybe I remembered it wrong (thought I called you Friday and left a message and then thought you posted what you posted after. Apologies...have a lot of people that PM'd me and I am the one that lost track. Anyways...no problem, just miscommunication/misunderstanding on my part. I'll keep you posted as we had discussed Saturday. If you are still interested.

Back on the market. Had to get timing adjusted. Also in the meantime I got the trailer new boards & carpet, BOYESEN REEDS, along with new hydraulic steering cylinder with fresh fluids as well as new batteries - 1 for cranking and 2 for trolling motor. It was bogging down at times in Sept. when I took it for a lake test with someone. Had to make it right and didn't have the time until recently (so I said it was sold - so I could buy time to make it right). It's running well now (planed out every time two weekends ago for several hours on the lake). Lake tests available this week with cash in hand. Serious buyers only. PM me and I will give you my cell. I will waive the cash in hand requirement if we speak ahead of time and I get a feeling that you are really in the market for purchasing a boat. Lake test at Lake Fork --- Friday or Saturday looks good for my schedule. $11000 with a little wiggle room (I just put in right under $1600 with all that I just mentioned).

***Price was bumped up a bit from when I had it originally posted due to the money I had put into it recently. Like I said, I have some wiggle room for negotiations after a lake test so you are comfortable with how the boat is running.

Added a new video link showing the boat so you all can get a better idea of the inside (took video today - Nov. 27th). Boat ran very well today. Fully charged the batteries when I was done and filled both tanks with fresh ethanol free gas along with proper ratio of Quicksilver Advanced Premium Plus Synthetic Blend.

Gary Hughes of Hughes Marine out of McKinney, TX did the rebuild. He used quality parts and made sure it was right. Slight adjustment needed to timing and that fixed the bogging down. He has decades of experience and tons of certifications on is wall. Was at other marine shops and saw that he trained some of them with paperwork hanging on their walls. Have receipt to prove it. Good question! rockon

Rebuild came with a 1 year warranty. Rebuilt back in July of 2016. Warranty on receipt states transferable. Lake tests welcome. No obligation to buy. Waiving cash on hand requirement for lake test so people that are truly in the market can get a feel for how strong she runs. If anyone wants to talk live - shoot me a PM and I will respond with my cell (or provide yours and I will call you when I am able, after work). thumb

I know it's cold...anyone want to lake test this weekend? You don't need cash in hand. Just want to show prospective buyer(s) what this puppy can do! Then you can go to the bank whenever, after you are sold on how good of a deal you are getting. It's close to Christmas and I am feeling generous. Got room to move the price down a good bit. I worked out the gremlins so you don't have to. Just keeping my center console boat. That's all. Don't need two boats. PM me and let me know if you want my cell number to talk and schedule a lake test (or PM me your cell and I will call you).

I won't be to heartbroken if I end up keeping her, but I do think she will sell when it warms up (and I should get more then, but can use the cash now). Thanks for looking!

Brakes are not on the trailer (stops easy with my Dodge Ram 1500...pulls smooth with it being a tandem trailer, the whole setup is under the required weight to require surge or electric brakes). Yes the digital display says 272 hours on the motor. It just had a powerhead rebuild so you can take that reading for what it's worth.

Thanks man! Yeah, figured I'd polish her up myself this spring and get what I want out of it. Willing to deal before the spawn if someone is interested. Won't be too sad if I end up keeping her.
