Need to sell my FS18 :(

Post by johnstonjosh » Thu Jul 26, 2018 3:11 pm

I have some unexpected expenses that have come up and it looks like I am going to have to sell my FS18 to cover it. Asking just $5k to get it moved quickly. You can see full details on my build thread and send me a pm if you are interested. The boat is in Orlando.

Boy that is a really nice boat and motor combo and the price is right. I looked at your build and it was built very well. I love the 25 hp yamaha 2 stroke as well. I am just not is a position to buy another boat right now as I have invested about 15000 in my FS17 build. Of course I could probably sell some guns and chainsaws and come up with the money given some time. I grew up in Altamonte Springs so I am a little familiar with the area but it has changed so much since Mickey Mouse moved to town.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune and hope it sells quickly for you.
Regards

I love the fs17 design. Might be the next boat I build. I sold my 338 lapua rifle to fund the fs18. I miss that rifle.

338 lapua is too much recoil for this old man. I will stick with 6.5 creedmore any day.

Any takers on your boat yet. Will tell my grandson about it as he is the on-site manager of the SR60 bridge project in North Tampa bay.

have had a ton of people seeming interested but no one has come by to see it yet. the 6.5 is one of my favorites. my 338 was the savage 110 ba. had less recoil than my 308 bolt rifle because of the weight and muzzle brake. here is the craigslist ad with my info on it https://orlando.craigslist.org/boa/d/20 ... 74457.html
