Illinois has the worst arrangement for boats, trailers and motors. DMV will help you get license for the trailer, but then you have to fill out a form with DNR to get the boat registered. Motors don't need anything. I boat a boat in KC, Kansas and spent two months getting everything legal in Illinois. The only good thing that DNR does is allows you to use the form for 120 days while you wait for things to process.
I never learned a single thing while I was talking.

No.....you just weren't meant to have THAT boat. Patience, patience (as if I have any).......keep looking, your bound to find the perfect boat eventually - or simply buy the "not so perfect boat" and then mod it to be the perfect boat!! :D

as for patience we all have patience or we wouldn't be fishing

as for the perfect boat :roll: not looking for that, but am and have been looking for the not so perfect and that is the 3 that have all been #-o #-o

It'll happen it's just a matter of time....remember not to look on C-list unless you can step out the door and go look at it right then an there. Hang in there.
If you need to find me I'm fishing.....just don't tell my wife.

Another idea would be posting a want ad on craigslist. Say that you're a motivated buyer with cash in hand. You might be the one turning sellers away. It's worth a try.

yea like he said post a wanted ad in different areas. like subject WAnted or WTB 14' - 16' aluminum v hull boat

Then in your description type in needs to be on a trailer with a motor. Priced around blah blah blah. (name a somewhat fair price) then put may pay more for newer and well maintained. Email me with information and description.


Ive done this for my outboard that was a 2000 15 hp yamaha 4 stroke and got a great deal for only 750. My price was between 400 - 600 for a motor but added the extra information for people to put a newer outboard outboard close to the price and bam found this great motor. Whats nice to is most people probibly dont have thier boat up at that point so you have time to get it. Truth is, when you see a deal you need to drop everything and drive straight for it because things go quick as you can see.

It took me two months of looking to find the "deal" I wanted. This is the hot time of the year with lots of people wanting boats, so more competition. You'll find the one.
