    <P>Friend has a 1247 that he will be selling. He's stored it in my yard for the last 3 years and it hasn't seen water except rain. It's also sitting on a galvinized trailer.</P>

    <P>Okay, I finally got to talk to the owner of the boat Chris. He's asking $&nbsp;495 for it on the trailer. The trailer is big enough to handle a 14' rig if you ever upgraded (my trailer cost me $525 when I bought my boat). I hope to post a pic or two by wed.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">do you know what make of boat it is? i take it the trailer is just a flat utility trailer. i have access to a 9 horse mud buddy. do you think that is too much power for the boat? i know you are located near youngstown as we have talked before. i might be able to take a ride out there. </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">chris</P>

    <P>Chris, it's a Landau 1247. I'll check the boat later for motor specs.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">It's rated for 5 hp. The trailer is definitely a boat trailer whith the winch and bunks on it. Pat (my buddy who owns it) dropped off a Humminbird 2000</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">or 4000 that go with it along with two swivel seats and the clamp on lights that go with it. I'll take pics after I get the seats on it.</P>
