14 foot Misty River Boat with console. Comes with a 40HP Mercury 4 stroke and Shorelander trailer.

Please read full disclosure to avoid confusion.

From my research from the hull number the boat was manufactured in 1996. The transom is solid the floor is solid no rips in the carpet but its a tad faded. The seats are original again a bit faded no rips. The boat has a built in live well. The window or windbreak on the console has some cracks and have seen better days yet totally functional replacements online are around $100. It comes with a fish finder but I have no idea if it works. It sits on a Shorelander trailer which is in excellent shape and has a new spare mounted on it. There are some light dock marks nothing of any concern.
The Mercury engine is from my research a year 2000 40 ELPT 4S. It fires up but needs a gasket kit they are 80 on the mercury site as it leaks fuel so basically it needs some carb work. It has great compression and spits it water as it should. I had a marine mechanic look at it and quoted me $400-500 to rectify the issue with the fuel he told me its common and not anything major, he said most of the cost was in labor. He said it was a very simple fix.
I purchased the boat a few months ago I have not registered it or the trailer I was planning on using it on some lakes in the interior. I have a bill of sale and the transfer papers for the trailer signed by the previous owner who has not used it in a couple of years. The boat will need a cleaning. I dont really want to part with it but realistically the wife and kids don't like tenting so I need to bring my trailer and my small boat I can fit in the box of my truck. Im asking $5500 but if you make it easy on me I'll let it go for 5k just hook it and take it away. Im not too happy about this but I'll never get around to using it for what I want.
I dont need any trades I have enough stuff to keep me busy.
