    17ft center console skiff w/ 1991 Johnson 88HP, 2004 Minn Kota Saltwater series trolling motor (value at $300), and 2004 EZ-Loader trailer with spare wheel (value at $900).

    This boat has been a joy to flyfish out of in Puget Sound - very clean lines and no clutter to get hung-up on. She'll cruise at about 40 mph, and runs very dry with a hull shape and wide teak gunwale that sheds the chop.

    I've owned the boat for three years, but must sell as my 1 year old son now garners my time. The boat has been garage-kept for those three years, and was recently serviced (routine) at Tom's Outboard in Olympia. When I bought the boat I had the transom reinforced with 1/8in aluminum plate to maximize its durability. The Johnson runs extremely well and has power tilt and trim; the Minn Kota runs as new. The boat trailers like a dream and is a breeze to launch. Anchor and storage compartments to stow your fishing and safety gear. All upholstery is in great condition, and the teak adds an uncommon touch of class. This boat was a tender on a yacht in Florida in its former life.

    I’ve mostly fished her around Whidbey Island and South Puget Sound, and have had her up to Tofino (W. Vancouver Island) several times – always a pleasure to fish from. I’ll throw in two 6.5 gallon external tanks and associated hoses, as well as accessory stainless steel railings for the bow.

    Pick it up just in time for this coho season!

    $5,400 – serious inquiries can kick tires and/or join me on a test run out of Olympia.
