DH/DS fishes off of it, and I swim off of it. (But if it were up to me, I'd sell it in a second)

    Well I bought the boat on Saturday. I initially had planned to bring it back by water, across the Okeechobee waterway, but there were a few issues that needed to be taken care of first,and the mechanic couldn’t do it till Wednesday. Since I’m paying $160 per day for it to sit at the marina, I elected to have it transported over. The marina is also charging me a additional $300 to put the boat on the transports trailer. I need to get the boat back home.

    it needs a good detailing, and some maintenance brought up to date. But Intrepid is a very desirable brand and not many for sale, I’ll get it looking and running like new or close to it soon.

    It’s worthwhile if you live on water. If you have to drive it somewhere not so much.
