That's a darned good price for an Avon inflatable and motor... but a FIFTY HORSE? Jayzus, i'm surprised your boat doesn't flip over backwards anchored, let alone on plane! My 14'-er ran fine with a 9.9 (wished it was a 15 hp but the ol' back couldn't lug it no more). Good luck with your sale. Helluva rig.

Rule #1 ~ Don't sweat the small stuff.

Rule #2 ~ It's all small stuff.

I am also a fan of the lFRB (little f#cking rubber boat) and fished out of my Zodiac for years in Alaskan waters! We were also referred to as 'rubber duckies' by the folks fishing out of ridged hulls.

I can't tell from the photo if your Avon has a hard bottom, or does it break down and roll up for transporting it without a trailer?

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

The Tohatsu weighs 138 lbs and does require two people to muscle it bur does not overpower the boat. Planes easily with 8 in it but 4 and gear is very comfortable. It is not a hard hull and there are no patches.

Electric start on motor

I carried everything folded up in my motorhome. Set up was about an hour with my son and I.
