83 Ranger 372v with 84 johnson 140 rebuilt 4 years ago. Used for THSBA last two year, but upgraded to larger boat. minn kota 70lb, humminbird 798 (might move over to larger boat). This boat is old reliable when my larger one was having issues. Now that the issues have been sorted out I do not need the ranger.

I have a 1988 Kingfisher 196 bassboat with a Merc 175HP motor. I had the transom redone within the last year by Johnson's Fiberglass(it has a lifetime warranty). The seats and carpet were redone 3-4 years ago. The motor has never been redone. It runs like a charm. I did have Service Marine in Emory rebuild the tilt/trim unit last year.

The boat is outfitted with a Motorguide Tour 82 trolling motor. The electronics are a Humminbird 1198 at the console and a Humminbird 997 at the bow. It comes with a dual axle trailer built for the boat. Livewells work. Has a triple bank battery charger.

I don't get out much these days, but this boat is fully tournament ready. This boat is turnkey ready.

As for price, I would take 5K firm. I have the boat and motor titles in hand.

I can text pics upon request if the rain will stop long enough here for me to take them.

Tight Lines,
Mark

Have a 93 Basscat PII duel console with a 200 on it, going to be selling in a few weeks to a month( just don't use it that much) Humminbird 1197 on dash smaller Humminbird on front. would be a little more then your 5K but thought I would throw it out there. Picture before I put bucket seats in it.
