3 yr. old Black Lab

  View Printable Version 

I am giving away my 3 year old black lab. My wife said to get rid of it because it killed her Mallards, chickens, and turkeys. She is pissed and says either I go or the dog goes. It was a tuff choice, but I guess I choose to get rid of the dog because it can't cook or do laundry. Call Phil at 712-330-4251 or email at kingjud@yahoo.com

Cheap fishing boat!

  View Printable Version 

This is an extra wide.extra deep 14 foot mirrocraft v bottom (20 inc transom). Comes with a great running 15 horse shortshaft motor, good trolling motor, and a depth finder (transducer needs replaced). Boat has dry storage, good livewell and two seats. The trailer is a 2004 shorelander with two new tires and a brand new spare. The trailer alone is worth the asking price. I have two boats and one has to go, but it has to go today or tomorrow. I will deliver it to the Des Moines area tomorrow for free. The ONLY thing wrong with this set up is there is one leaky rivet, easy fix, and it's no big deal, you could have it in the water for an entire weekend and maybe have 1.5 inches of water in the back. I've had it on the MIssissippi river, Rainy Lake (US/Canada border) with no issues, and it's awesome for shallow water (rivers). Two can comfortably fish out of it, but it'll do three.

$750 or best offer
