Ausable River Boat - For Sale in MI

Post by burgerthumb » Tue Jun 30, 2009 9:01 am

Hey.
My dad is unloading his classic Ausable river boat. It is all wood (pine?) and long, flat, and skinny in the classic style favored by guides for decades in northern lower Michigan. It was hand-made specifically for my dad in about 2002. It probably has less than 20 trips on it.

The boat lives in northern MI, north of Petoskey, but could probably be delivered, with trailer as far south as the Detroit area.
Ball park price - 3500 w/ trailer.
Drop me a PM if you are interested.

unless you're dating a whore....
in that case parts of Indiana and Ohio (maybe even Kentucky) would be in the stink

Thanks Ram, guess all I have to do now is figure where to stick the UP.

The boat looks nearly identical to the one in stonedfly's pic, but without the green paint and center seat.

I can pole the thing as far as cape horn, but then it's all yours.

Northern lower Michigan: above the knuckle, not in the UP. So basically, what Ramcatt said.

I've seen parts of all three states that belong in the stink.

Completely related, did you guys hear Michigan was considering this as their state flag?

Fishing is not a matter of life or death, it's much more serious than that.

Might want to buy a time machine while you're at it...or a "Hooked on Phonics: Learn to Read" kit.
