I just purchased a new Excel/Prodrive mud motor setup and a new 24 ft Sea Ark outboard setup so I am selling my "fleet" of duck boats. 4 total. They are all ready to hit the water for hunting or fishing and have all been maintained but the dealership/marinas as I am not mechanically inclined (understatement). Feel free to call/text me as I have boats for several applications of hunting and fishing. This boat is in like-new condition. The boat started out as a 1959 Loweline 1648 jon boat. It is 70 inches at the top and 48 inches at the bottom. The boat was is great shape when I bought it but I took it into a local welding shop and had the following done: - Water tested it and repaired 2 rivets that had small leaks. - Completely rebuilt the transom with 1/4" aluminum. - Welded Beavertail pods on the back. - Installed a diamond plate floor. - Primed and painted the boat. That was $1,600 worth of work. The boat is very stable and durable and it is light enough that you can get good speed out of it with a full load. The wide open floor plan is perfect for hunting or fishing. The motor is a Kawasaki 27 hp Mudbuddy long shaft. It has fuel injection so it will start on the coldest mornings. It has been maintained by the local mud motor dealership and although it does not have an hour meter, as you can see in the picture, it looks (and runs) like new. The motor is probably 7-8 years old and definitely has under 50 hours on it. I just had it to Illowa Marine and they checked it out and serviced it. The prop is in great shape. This motor setup is perfect for this boat and the pods really allow you to get in the shallows. The blind is the famous Fensel (sp?) blind from the guy in the Dubuque, IA area. You completely disappear in the marsh with these blinds. They are incredible. You pull the spring loaded covers over the top of you when you are working duck and then release it when you are ready to shoot. These blinds are between $2,200 - $2,600 new. The blind can be removed from the boat with 8 bolt and you will have a fishing boat. Again, I can't say enough about the blind configuration. You have to see it to appreciate it. The trailer is a heavy duty trailer and allows you to pull the boat down the road at 70 mph+ without knowing it is back there. I had the tongue shortened so it would draft right behind my suburban. The setup will come with a battery and gas tank. Again, all you have to do is drop it in the water and start hunting or fishing. The boat is located in Marion, Iowa (Cedar Rapids area) and must be picked up there but I do travel all over the Midwest for work and might be able to meet the buyer if they'll cover some of my gas. Please contact me through Ebay or call me at 319-360-2286 if you have any questions or would like to take a look at it. Thanks.
