Clean New York State Title for both the boat and the trailer.
Known issues:
Often just clicks when starting and takes a few turns of the key before it "catches" - Don't know why.
Fuel gauge and horn do not work. Speedometer does not work probably just needs a pitot tube.
Some vinyl peeled on dash.
Some rust on trailer, surge brakes not working (Fluid reservoir empty and I never tried filling it)
Some stress cracks but not unusual for a boat of this age.

I Used this boat primarily for Lake Erie fishing, I have owned it for the past 4 seasons and it handles Lake Erie very well. I am only selling this because I stumbled into a deal on a bigger boat .
