    Are you willing to drive north over the border to pick one up and tow it back ?
    The currency exchange rate would help you.

    If so which provinces would you be willing to drive to ?
    There's a 87 wing keel that would be asking $2700 in Ontario

    I doubt you'd be the only guy. LOL
    You should have seen the number of ice fishermen on the lake this past winter. For some reason it was a bumper crop of trophy sized fish.
    In the summer, the lakes are full of fishing fans from the USA.(Though you may not notice, because we weight them down so they stay on the bottom,if they catch too many fish. ;) )

    I'm open to going up to Canada, absolutely!. I think I may have seen this one on one of the searches I did. Not sure, but does it not have a motor or a trailer? Trying to remember. Can you send me a link? ...Do you know if there are any crossing the border with a new boat issues?
    Thanks!!

    Is it this one? The description isn't bad...I think I went past it because:
    I don't see a mention of a trailer and the photos say "not the actual boat" but mine looks just like it.......Makes me wonder if the interior is a problem (stained bulkheads, etc)???

    yeah that is it. use the "contact poster" fields at the side of that page and it sends an anonymized email to him/her.

    As I mentioned to LR, I got a response back from the owner in Kingston, and he promised some photos back on 5 June, but haven't seen anything from him since then. LR's reminder prompted me to reach out to him again on whether the boat was still available and about the photos.....I've been crazy busy so it got placed on the back burner anyway!!! Thanks LR for reminding me! Have to wait until it slows down a bit to re-energize the search.

    Thank for all of your recommendations. I contacted the owner of the boat I was interested in, and basically said things like all the folks here were saying to me. Doing the work is not the issue, as everyone on this forum knows....it sometimes comes down to the real killer....TIME!!! We expect $$$ outgoing, or we wouldn't be buying a boat :)

    I'll keep you all posted and look forward to seeing any boats that you come across.

    Rob
