Here is your opportunity to own the world's fastest drift boat! Please allow a moment to realize that wasn't a typo... That is correct, the fastest (looking) drift boat. Let me be clear, we're not talking drift like some hopped up "Tokyo Drift" machine. No I mean drift, as in drifting along with the current. I'll take a step back and provide a little back story. I recently traded a perfectly good vehicle to acquire this awesome looking speed machine. When the trade went down, I was assured (and to prove I'm not a complete idiot) and shown the boat, transmission and lights all operate as you would like... although he did a fair amount of tinkering while showing me this vessel. I made the trade and to my delight my kids revered me as some kind of god that catered to their carnal need for speed and sound/music/noise production on a grandiose scale (the boat has an amazing sound system, really it is pretty damn great!). As "bumping/thumping" as the stereo is the looks are equally awe inspiring. From the competition orange and black paint to the great detail in skulls and color matched interior seating this thing looks like it will set your hair on fire while doing Mach 3... you nearly wet yourself while taking in it's sheer awesomeness! That said, had the county cops not been present on the water today something would have gone down. I mean to say the boat would have gone down... I envisioned myself paddling (yup paddling) out into the middle of the lake and ripping that god damn plug out of the back of the boat (which by the way does a great job - it doesn't take on a drop of water while playing Gilligan bobbing along in the water) and swimming like mad for the shore while the "HMS BASTARD" finds a comfortable place to rest on the bottom. With all this ranting you may be asking yourself, "why would this guy take this boat out if there were issues?" Good question, my response: Yes, it had issues. I replaced, and diagnosed, every problem I could think of or discover through online research. Bottom line: I'm not completely incompetent. I had it running like a champ at home. It would start and run beautifully, firing on the first turn of the motor. The transmission will engage and operate as you would expect. And it does this dependably every time.... in a garbage can full of water. You drop it in the lake and all of a sudden, cold feet. Or maybe it's allergic to actual bodies of water. Whatever it is I'm done. It runs great at home but then leaves you looking like a mentally challenged, rage induced, redneck/motor head in floral print swim trunks at the docks? I'm sorry to be so blunt. I guess I should sugar coat a little like the smooth talker I got it from, but after this afternoon I'm at my wits end. I have a beautiful boat, that is supposed to be a speed demon (125hp Force) that looks and sounds great that absolutely everyone loves and tell me I too will love once the kinks are worked out. I assume the dual carbs just need to be cleaned now, by the way it was behaving today, but I'm not doing it. So here's the deal: I have about $3500 worth of traded goods into it and another $450 +/- worth of life jackets, pull tube/ropes, whistle/blow horns, on board air pump, bumpers, etc. invested; not to mention all the parts and hardware purchased to get it to actually "run." I want to trade. I don't know exactly what it is I'm looking for, but I can tell you if you ask to trade me another boat for this one I'm going to go keyboard warrior on you and threaten to punch you in the ear hole for not listening to what I'm saying here... or maybe the eye. I guess you're reading this... not hearing it. Either way: NO BOATS!!!!!!!!Seriously though, what we really could use is a nice commuter friendly vehicle for my wife. She recently took a job that happens to be a bit further away from home than we had originally bargained for. Given the right trade/trader involved she would also be willing to throw in her nice Dodge Caravan to make up some difference if what you have is worth more than what we work out as a fair value on the boat. Here's the pitch I would use to convince your significant other/wife/husband/life and or sleep partner: you get a sweet boat that needs very little (if anything more than a little more elbow grease) and they get one of the most comfortable, third row seating capable, fuel friendly urban assault vehicles you could think of. What's more to ask? Speed, sex appeal, monster stereo, kid/cargo hauling to the max and an inflated/deflated ego depending on which item you are utilizing at the time. Hit me up, ask some questions, be honest about what you have to offer... I believe I have done an adequate job of being brutally honest about what I offer. And maybe we can meet up. Probably not at my house though. I don't need someone that trades for my boat, whom I believe to be bordering a psychotic break shortly after taking possession of said vessel, to know where I live. I can be reached via the C.L. email link or text/call 208-3nine2-4178. I reside in Nampa and that's where the boat is if you should decide you're interested; I'm available late afternoon/evenings every day. Thanks for reading and I look forward to getting rid of the boat... I mean hearing from you! I look forward to hearing from you. Location: Canyon Co.
