Purchased a bigger champion and need to sell this one. It is an older boat, but everything works on it.

Carpet is newer and in good shape with a padded front deck in front of the rod lockers.

Transom is solid with no flex or leakage.

LED lighting on front and rear decks as well as inside lockers and under consoles.

Wiring, bolt pattern, and recessed foot pedal tray is there for an ultrex, I have put a wireless minn kota on there to sell.

Seats have stress tares in them.

Hull has been repaired in the past due to running onto a gravel bar before I owned it, but is solid.

Motor runs strong but has lower compression of 60 in the top left cylinder. It has been the same for the last several years.

Currently has 3 batteries, but I was able to fit 4x group 31's easily if you wanted to have a 36v trolling motor.

Manual jackplate is solid. New tilt/trim motor. Has a keel guard. Livewells work great and have vent system installed. Dual bilge pumps (1 manual, 1 auto).

Trailer has some rust, but is very solid C-channel. Vortex hubs. Spare tire included.

Keep in mind this price is with the motor/issues mentioned in mind.

Id run some Marvel Mystery oil down that cylinder...had the SAME motor doing the SAME thing and it brought me up to low 90s compression. I ran it for a few years like you have and then managed to free it up. Motor was still on that boat untouched as of a year ago so it had stayed up for like 9 years.

Motor has no value to me . $5500 cash after I see it.
