Selling my 20 ft 1995 Falcon King Striper forward / center console guide boat with a 1998 Yamaha 225 HP outboard. It comes with a single axle galvanized steel trailer and a Minn Kota Maxxum trolling motor. I have clean titles in my name on the boat and motor.

I'm the second owner, bought in 2006. Original owner was a family friend and used this as a striper guide boat on Lake Texoma for about 6 years. This was his "side" job and he took folks out a couple times a month from what I remember. We kept the boat in a lift at Cedar Creek. The boat is currently located at my house in Carrollton / Farmers Branch area.

Price is $8000. The boat isn't perfect... so I'm trying to provide as much detail as possible. Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Hull
Boat was made by Falcon Boats located in the Sherman / Denison area. Hull in good condition, paint is faded and could use a good polishing. A patch of the carpeting came loose and there is an oil stain towards the back as seen in the pictures. I haven't tried to wash it with detergent so not sure how bad it is. Can fish 5 people - front seat along with 4 moveable pedestal seats in back. A few sections of the decking are soft and may need to be replaced in some spots. Large aluminum fuel tank (sorry I don't recall capacity - maybe around 50 gallons) and large oil reservoir with access at back of the boat.
I also have a plastic windshield and a railing guard to go with the console... was removed for the boat cover to fit in years past.

Motor - 1998 3.1L OX66 225 HP Fuel Injected VMax Model V225TLRW
- I don't have engine hours. We used it on weekends during the year so not a lot of total hours while we owned it.
- Had main fuel pump replaced when motor was in for a full service back in December of 2015 - Water pump impeller and all fuel lines replaced at that time
- This summer replaced the filters / water separators with Yamaha parts
- Could probably use a new water pump impeller
- O2 sensor needs to be cleaned out - I may get to this before boat is sold
- Low pressure fuel pumps may need to be serviced as I can't remember if I had this done in 2015
- Throttle control cables are sticky and may need to be replaced or serviced
- Last time on the water had the motor cut out a few times - started right up after pumping the fuel bulb up. Not sure if I was running low on fuel, but may want to have it checked out.
- Have service manuals to go with the motor

Trailer - 1992 Road Runner
- Single axle (replaced about 3-4 years ago along with new hubs and tires ) 5 lug wheels
- Galvanized steel construction
- All new wiring and lights (2019)
- New carpeted bunk boards (2019)
- Includes one spare
- Hasn't been registered in a while as it wasn't on the road while the boat was in the lift

Trolling Motor - Minn Kota Maxxum 74/H 3X Steering 24v 52" shaft
- Removable / quick detach on hull
- 74 lb thrust 24v motor
- Needs the spring retainer / bearing replaced as the alignment lug broke off - I have the Minn Kota replacement part and will try to replace it before the boat sells

Additional / Electronics
- Battery / Charger - Minn Kota MK330 battery charger (up to three batteries)
- Two deep cycle / dual purpose batteries that are still good. You will want to get a new dedicated starter battery.
- Lowrance X67c and an older LFG-300 fish finder / sounder - transducers at back of the boat may need to be replaced as my labs used them for chew toys.
- I may have some striper fishing rigs and will throw in all striper tackle that I have... just have to find it.
- I also have a couple of jugs of engine oil, some Yamaha trim fluid and also gear oil.

How solid is the floor and the transom? Any wood rot in floor or transom?

Transom is solid.
