I want a boat, My parents have one, a Stingray 220 lx bowrider. I had the chance to buy a stingray 220, but it was a cuddy cabin, and in a boat that size, i'd rather have the bow rider. I'd be down for a Boat's and Hoe's meet, I think my parents only put 12 hours on the boat last year.

I have a 86 20ft Stratos with a Yamaha 200 on it. Pretty fun for what it is.

So here's a dumb question, When negotiating on prices, how much do you figure for a trailer? I found a 22 foot Cobalt Bowrider, with a newer motor, 225 hrs, new stereo, and I have actually be on the boat this past summer--it's my bosses old boat. When he traded it, he kept his trailer and they put it on a single axle trailer, with no brakes. So for the combination, they want 9k. I know they paid 4800 for it. I'd like to put in an offer but don't want to be a douche who lowballs because i don't know how much trailers cost.

yup. i sucked up a tow rope on my jet ski last year. it wrapped around the driveshaft so tight i went from 40mph to engine killed. i pushed it to shore and spend 3 hours with it on it's side cutting the rope out with a pocket knife.

Yeah, same thing happened with me. It was black/brown camo colored, and it was just floating there, and I noticed the motor lug, and I should have stopped it, but didn't. It wrapped a good 20' up before it killed the motor. Luckily we were buy a sand bar, so a buddy, pulled me over and had tools to take off the prop, because the rope was also wound behind the prop. It was a mess. I really think they should only make tow ropes in neon colors.

1quick98_gs, how do you like it on the river? Ive only been out there a couple of times. Im kinda considering keeping a boat out there as another option. I can get away with a lot smaller(cheaper) boat, a cheaper slip, and cheaper storage. The thing i dont like is being limited to the area of the river between whatever locks you are between. You can also ski/wakeboard/tube a lot easier than lake michigan.
