1987 Johnson 88 SPL





She aint a Big, New Boat, but She gets me from A to B!


That's a god looking ride. Pretty's got nothing to do with catching fish... if it did I couldn't catch a guppy in a fish tank! Your fish pics say enough.

Jon my friend if you don't rememer anything else in your life remember this CHROME DON'T GET YA HOME. I think for an 87 model boat it looks great and as long as it runs good and things that need to work do work then it's a Rolls Royce.....
The best thing I like about my boats are they are paid off and everything that needs to work does....
The only expense is Insurance and I don't pay all the much for Insurance for teh coverage I have on them.....

Thanks Doug!!
For my First Boat, I Love this one! The Price helped too. Paid $800 for the boat when I first got it and started working on it to what you see today! Not sure how much I've put into it, but Honestly, It's bee very fun. Got to basically build it the way i wanted it, so that's a plus

There's nothing wrong with that boat. Like Softy said you can catch as many fish in that boat as a $40,000 one. Not to mention you don't have the payment the rest of us have.

Wow man that paint really looks good...you buff it out?
