Wanted; Boat and / or Permit

Postby robert644 » Sun Aug 24, 2008 4:14 pm

I am looking to purchase a boat and / or a permit (hand troll) in the next year or so. I worked on a power troller for a couple years, mid 90's, before leaving SE and moving to Oregon. Currently I am with the army and when I am done with my enlistment the plan is to return to SE AK and purchase a boat to live on, or purchase one in Washington. I am going to have about $10,000 to spend on a boat when I get out. I worked in boat sales after leaving SE, so I know what $10,000 is going to get me. I am really partial to the heavy built wooden boats.

I figure I can always find a boat, and if it comes down to it, an old plywood cabin cruiser will do. Hang an outboard off the back, I can get pretty creative. The permit is the most important thing, without it I can't fish, heck I have a boat right now if it comes to that, a 20' Wellcraft that I really like, but it's not really what's needed. A permit is the difficult part for me.

If there's anyone out there with a permit that they would like to sell in the next year or two, or a nice boat, I'd like to chat. I realize it's all smoke without cash in hand, I'm just trying to keep myself sane here at Fort Drum, looking for that light at the end of my army enlistment.

I'm in a similar situation and what I have found by going over a few of the links provided by Jon here viewtopic.php?f=10&t=247

Is a few boats/permits that people are willing to owner finance with some decent money down.
