Looking for a 14' jonboat...

Anyone know of a 14 footer without a motor or trailer for sale? We're not looking to spend over $250. We might be willing to pay a little more if it has a trolling motor on it in good shape. We'd also be willing to drive within 2 hours of Fort Smith for it as well.

greenster, I have some leads on a few boats, but still looking though. The only downside for you is they're in OK. I'll see if I can't get you some pictures.

I cant see myself finding enough money to support a boat, I really need a canoe :toofunny: . Ive been building my buddys boat and i know how much he has paid to get it ready for season. he got the 1652. geting materals to build deck, seats and gun box cost enough alone much less every thing else to go with it. hard enough trying to find $$ for the gear that i need to replace. much love and thanks for thinking of me though.

No problem. If you need me to keep an eye out for something for you let me know.

I hear you about the gear for the boat. I bought a 1754 War Eagle a little over a year ago and dropped some serious cash on getting it rigged out the way I wanted it. Hopefully I'll hold onto it for awhile, but I've already caught myself eyeing the 20'+ boats.

I hunt out of my boat about 25% of the season. We build a blind on the bank and only hunt out of the boat when someone beats us to the spot. Having a boat blind helps a lot when you're hunting the Arkansas River. It makes it much easier to chase the ducks around.
