This is an AMAZING deal. I spent some time talking to Marty over the phone since we had very similar boats. He was extremely passionate about fishing and boats. It really stood out how eager he was to share his knowledge and help out. If anyone is serious they need to act fast. I don't see this lasting more than a day or two. Its not often you get to buy a boat, fish it for years, and sell it for twice as much as you paid.

I was working on my website the other night updating links and I came across TWENTY used aluminum boats. They were all in the 28-32 foot range and every one of them was priced above 200k with half of those being in the 300K range.

Marty Mcmillian, the previous owner that passed away was on an episode of Tred Barta fishing for monster Stripers. He came accross as a great guy that loved life and his fishing. It's a shame he passed at such an early age. We just never know when our time is up.

I'm not superstitious but it would be sort of weird knowing that the owner passed away on that boat and not by natural causes.

That boat really was a steal for 95k. Wonder if the family realized it and pulled it off the market?

Yep, tragic deal. Anchoring accident if I remember correctly, pulled overboard. About 15 years ago I was just downriver on the CR when a skipper got caught in an anchor rope and drowned. Had a family friend do the same thing just about Camas a couple years later. As dangerous as running offshore is, anchoring in current is still one of the most dangerous things we do as boaters.
