1996 Nitro 180FS w/ 150 Merc XRi - $9,000.00. Boat is very clean because it has been garage kept since I owned it and I am the original owner. I do fish so it isn't showroom perfect but in great shape (she's dirty in the pics because we just came off the lake).

* Nitro 180FS - just shy of 18' and has a little open space between the two rod lockers so I built the tackle storage compartment seen in the pics. I should still have the little padded cushions that snap over the rod boxes (I never used them). Everything works but the horn so I'll throw in a whistle. Some minor scratches on the hull but just cosmetic.
* Mercury 150 XRi (Fuel Injected) - motor is strong and pushes the boat 62-65 with an average load. Was rebuilt four years ago (I believe). No idea of hours because you can't pull them from this year of Merc. I had the motor serviced last July and everything was good. A few light scratches on the cowling.
* MotorGuide Xi5 80 lb/54" shaft (about a year old) mounted on a LiftSaver Plus Black Powder Coated. Handle will stay but I am keeping the HDI Transducer currently mounted on the TM. Does have some scratches and a little piece of the black cover plate broke off from launching but that is why I created the LiftSaver and installed on this boat. No issues now. The Point One and Gateway will stay with me too.
* Lowrance HDS 7 Touch w/GPS/Sidescan/Downscan/2d will be mounted at the console on the 1" Ram Mount shown (the HDS 9 Touch stays with me). The LSS-2 (Sidescan/Downscan) and 2d Sonar will remain mounted on the back transom. The metal FF Mount shown on the bow will also stay with me.
* All three batteries were replaced in October (2 TM's) and January (Cranking) and will come with the 3 bank MK Digital charger.
* Upholstery is in good shape but driver's seat has a few small puncture holes from a zipper on a pair of wind pants.
* The trailer has been repaired and beefed up by me when there has been an issue. I also custom fabricated a swing-away tongue to save needed storage space.
* I have two rod organizers, anchors, AM/FM/Cassette Radio and cover that will also go with the lucky buyer.

I have caught a lot of fish off of this boat. It's going to be a good boat for someone.

Nice looking Nitro and looks a lot like my 87 Nitro MX185 (pre-BPS) which has similar color pattern.
The 87 is still going strong and hope to keep another 5 yrs, wish I could upgrade to a Z18.

Good Luck on your Sale.

Thanks TxDan, it has been a great boat and that Merc XRI is one on the best motors that Mercury made (according to my mechanic). I hate to sell it but buying the last boat I will ever own and hopes it lasts me 20 years like this one (I hope I last 20 more years).

To those that have pm'ed me, they are all answered now and look forward to showing you the boat this weekend.

The boat is still available and is located in Lewisville, TX (just north of Dallas). Bring Sadie's Carne Adovada and I'll cut you a deal.

Anyone can call me at 469-853-5389 to discuss the boat (just try to keep it after 5:00 CST).

Bump for what looks like a great deal on this boat. Wish I was in position to really look it over.
Really interested in the Lift Saver Trolling Motor Bracket. I have my brother and some other buddies I know that I am going to forward this info to. Looks like a really great piece of hardware for the trolling motors.
