Picking up #12 this afternoon. My 4th 13' sport. It has been sitting toooo long, decent shape but needs some TLC pronto. Nice galv trailer and no engine. The wood looks like teak it is so weathered but I think it will survive just fine.

Congrats, I just loved my 13'er, and it sounds like you did too, this is #4. Good luck

Nick, what year is it? Also, did you put a contingency that it must weigh 360 lbs?
Let me know what your going to do with it. My son wants me to buy a new one, he thinks they are cool. I would rather repower with a 4 stroke. I have a borderline 1990 40 Erude on the 1972 and a crappy trailer. I think it would be better to sell that rig and start over. Regards, Jay

jay....Not sure of year yet, no title in hand. It is a 73-78 smirk but old style locker and floor. She is gonna roll. I will sell it for $1450 as-is($100 finders fee incl:) before I tear it down. Galv trailer.

Ok just to lay this on the line....I bought this boat because a coworker has a 25 Yamaha 1994 that is manual start. He wants a new electric 4 stroke and dealer said $500 for trade-in. He said I could have it for that! Then found out he could get $1000 after I agreed on this hull...not cool. So I would have had a nice package for under $2k that I could sell for over $3k...probably $ Now I have a hull only and no matter what, I can't fetch a good buck without a (cheap)engine...not cool. So I know you guys know I am a bottom feeder but this was a good deal that I will pass along because I don't have the time to get my hands dirty for a few hundred profit. I paid $1350 and put in a new wheel bearing so I am willing to sell for $1450.

Nick, with the year doesn't it need a 15" motor?

Sorry to hear that your deal fell through, but I would imagine that you will be able to sell the hull pretty fast! This just proves that all notches are not equal...

JFM, it's got a 20" transom if it's built after 1972.

Bigshot, what's the serial number? That'll tell you exactly what year it is.

Could you send me a sample of the foam while your at it? Taken from, perhaps, under the bow light or the terminal block at the stern?

Tom, I probably could. Are you gonna see what type of foam it is? How much do you need?
