Gheenoe for sale


wily

Recommended Posts

I've got an older (1996) 15 foot gheenoe that i would like to sell. This is a boat that was made by Spider Boats in Arkansas before they branched out onto their own.

Gheenoes are basically fiberglass square stern canoes that are extremely stable. the mid section of the boat is flared out. it creates a very stable, high floating platform to fish from.

The boats originated in Florida. Spider boats is a manufacturer that at one time had a contract with Gheenoe to build the boats, apparently in an effort to broaden the distribution network.

I use the boat mostly for white bass fishing in Spring River, but it works just as well in a lake/pond setting. I have a 2001 Johnson (Tohatsu) 5 HP motor that i use on it and it runs along at a pretty good clip.

I also use a 38lb minn kota trolling motor that i mount to the front (i just turned the head around on a stern mount) by slipping it over the gunwale.

I'd consider selling the motor and trolling motor but would prefer to only sell the boat.

The boat has two padded bench seats (front and rear) and a walk-around padded center live well. I do not have a trailer for the boat, but i just slide it into the back of my pick-up and use ratchet straps to secure it to the tailgate latch. i also place carpeted bunk boards underneath the underside when it is in the truck. The boat has a center keel, so the boards help keep it from oscillating around.

Gheenoes have quite a following in the southeast. Many people think it is the best flats boat you can buy. As i said, it is extremely stable, you can stand up and cast in it and it's basically untippable.

The boat is similar to the canoes that Phil has for sale...albeit not as nice, and probably not as light. I'm a little guy but I can load it (unloaded) into the back of my full-size chevy truck. it probably weighs 125 pounds.

i'd sell it for $350. A grand for the boat and both motors.

Sorry guys, I bought it! Drove from Farmington, to Joplin. Normally a 4 1/2 hour trip but it took 6 due to weather on Friday night. Saturday it took 7 1/2 hours to get home. Oh wait I forgot about the 2 hours at Bass Pro Shop :D

It will definetly go to go use, dem smallies ain't got a chance now.

Good, glad to hear someone took this boat. Sounded like a good deal.

There are only three things in life that are certain : death, taxes, and the wind blowing at Capps Creek!
