aire 143d For sale

Its 14'3" and comes with a NRS fishing frame. Two action seats with can Caddy (a must have upgrade!) a highback rowers seat, 2 carlisle oars and blades. Its a dope show boat and I hate that im even putting this on here but a recent move has put it in my basement rolled up in its bag. I have taken great care of it using 303 a couple times annually. I would say its a 2003 or 2004 model.. I have the receipt somewhere in storage if its a major concern.. or we can call AIRE with the ID tag number. I mainly fished the Methow and OP with it.. its big, but drafts a tiny bit of water which was sweet. We took 3 guys, two dogs and enough beer to kill a small horse on most everyfloat. It was a flawless performer on the methow even at 400-500 cfs with all the dogs and gear. Its in great -excellent shape.. typical black scuffs on the floor, but nothing hardly at all on the sides of the boat. Its an amazing boat that needs to be wapping steel. $3200 plus freight. The freight should be around $200 but I'll confirm that if we strike a deal. All you need is an anchor and trailer to be fishing. Attached are the specs from AIRE....

I fished with kraig the other day. Hasn't even swung a fish this year. Full on domestication. You are welcome to my boat anytime also Luke. Wish I would be sending you pics of steel but it's a bonefish winter for me. Took a job running a 55' sport fishing boat in the Bahamas. Will be there until spring then I'm taking the guys other boat from Seattle to Alaska swinging flys on every coastal river that I cross. Give me a call and I'll tell ya about it!

Saw that comin a mile away. Last time I stayed at his old house when he was there, he was talking about how much he wanted to get married and have children. The next time I saw him, he had found a girl and wasn't able to get out on the river with us or hang out.

Sad day when the raft goes up for sale.. I guess you can use the proceeds for a down payment on a new bass boat!

Did you finish the house yet?
