Default PROLINE 231 Walk Around Cabin Sport Fishing Boat

1997 PRO-LINE 231 Walk Around Cabin Sport Fishing Boat NEVER in Saltwater
I am the original owner. I special ordered this boat from Pro-line. I still love this boat, but I havenít had the time to truly enjoy her. I have decided to let someone love her who has more time to enjoy her. She has spent practically her entire life locked in a dry storage building. She still looks young and new. This is the rare low time, like new boat that you always hoped to find. I have run its engines less than 50 hours (if that much). She runs great, (around 55 MPH) trailers great (I pull with a F-250 Pickup)
Here are the specs:
25í LOA length 102Ē Beam, Lots of fishing space in cockpit
Mercury 250 HP 250XL EFI
Mercury 9.9 HP 9.9ELRC 4 Stroke Electric Start w/alternator
Dual Binnacle Throttles & Key Switches
Full Motor Bracket with Swim Platform & Ladder
Hydraulic Steering with steering connection kit for 9.9 outboard
Trim Tabs
Stainless Steel Prop 250XL & Aluminum Prop 9.9
138 Gallon Fuel Tank
Dual Batteries w/switch plus onboard Battery Charger
Biminis Top w/windscreen
Full Curtain package
Deluxe Convenience Package
Fish Package
Cockpit Shower
AM/FM/CD with remote and 4 speakers
Lowrance 350A Sonar and GPS with Thru Hull Bronze Transducer
VHF/FM with 8í retractable Shakespeare Antenna
Fresh water Sink in Cabin
Alcohol Stove in Cabin
Lots of storage compartments in cabin
Tackle storage in Cockpit
Two overboard draining Insulated fish boxes
Live well in transom
Fresh water sink in transom

I can help with delivery for expenses. I live in Greenville, SC and the boat is stored here. Iím asking $24,900 for this like new, wonderful boat. You wonít be disappointed.

If that much!?! I have only had it out on the lake a couple of times a year and on a good fishing day I would only run the engine around 30 mins to 45 mis. I enjoy Striper fishing which involves a lot of sitting in the boat rather than riding. It makes a great fishing boat though...lots of room for a baittank or Large Icebox too. I have used it nearly every season so it has been used enought to keep everything lubed and working great.

Sounds sweet Tim. Anxious to see the pics too.

You can open a free image upload account here: http://www.imagecave.com/index.asp*up load your images from your C Drive, cut the 'EZCode' address from your Imagecave album and paste it directly into your original post. It will save THT bandwidth and Imagecave will adjust the size of your pics automatically to fit perfectly in the thread. Once you upload there you could delete them from your comp ifn' you wanted.

You will never get any 'spam' from Imagecave. Good luck on the sale of your boat. A fellow member made the comment "If you want to sell a boat on THT, you had better be prepared to 'give it away'." No doubt, you guys are cutting killer deals on some of these bad boys!

Thank you Rite Hook, I picked her up from the factory in FL and immediately put it into a locked storage room. It has "kept" very well. I work a lot so I have only had time to take her fishing a couple of times a year. It has always started perfectly and I am a pilot and aircraft mechanic so I have always maintained her to the same standard that I would my airplane. Thanks again, Tim

jtburf if you mean on the outboards those are for a tie-rod type of device that you use to steer the auxilliary motor using the main steering wheel by connecting the two motors. I have one on one of my boats.

Thats right RiteHook, I keep the connector steering rod stored in clips beneath the deck until I want to lower the trolling motor for trolling. Then I connect the two outboards and steer normally...Its a simple and pretty neat setup. Tim

No problem, here is a quick synopious on how to load pictures.

For starters create an album here on THT (Third link from far right side under the search function of the Classifieds),

Then you upload them from your computer to your album, after they are uploaded they will be assigned a number on the server
for instance your first picture has an id number of 33233 I think. After you have them loaded into an album you can simply add them to your post by useing the following text just remove all spaces [p h o t o]NUMBER[/p h o t o] ...

this will display the image in your post... you can find the assgined number by looking at the end of the URL string in you address window.

hope it helps...

john

I received an email today from a member stating that he thought that I was asking too much for this boat...given that and the fact that I have less response from my ad than I had hoped...I have to consider that maybe that he is right. Fact is, I am not sure what my boat is worth...can someone make a suggestion to help me put a fair price on her?
