War Eagle makes a excellent product and for 4500.00 if you dont want it let me know I will buy it .

Oh and Bucky have you ever purchased anything yourself or do your parent buy everything for you?

I sure wish I could get one of those. I don't know a whole lot about boats but considering it's only a 99 and 17' with a 40 on it, I'd have to say that's a pretty good price. A few months ago I saw one in the paper for sale almost like the one you describe and the guy was asking almost $7,000 for it.

I have a yamaha motor on my boat it is great it is a 95 model that i bought new very quiet and good gas mileage. A 40hp motor sounds a little small for a 17 footer I would make sure it handles it and the load good, if the moter is working hard it won't get good fuel economy.plus you know it will be full of dekes and half your house when you use it. they are good boats! :thumbsup: "take a kid hunting you will never regret it"
