my local academy sports had the pelican 8 ft bass fisher on clerance for $299....because it was stored outside,had little mildew on the floor,and the swivel seats....needed oil to swivel.
so needless to say i picked up the boat,headed to walmart for a $120 30lb minkota.
at home i had 2 salvaged deep cycle batteries,and a solar panel with voltage regulator....expensive....but i get them free all the time.
so with both batteries,and solar panel....i should get a full 12 hours of riding/fishing from this rig.
plus it fits perfect in the back of my 82 long bed.boat weights in at 87lbs,fully loaded im looking at about 200 lbs.
total cost for me to ride!
