Craigslist is usually full of boats in a month or two. What you are looking for probably is higher end than the old discontinued Lund S-16, but those are the industry standard for a lot of the Canadian fishing camps. Don't discount those even older Lunds as being inferior because actually they were made from much stronger virgin aluminum instead of recycled aluminum like the newer ones. My fish camp guy buys every old S-16 that he can find in the Midwest because he doesn't need to patch them so often.

I hear you there. I bought an S14 back in the 70's and with that flat bottom it was enough to un-focus your eyeballs in any kind of a chop. Tough boat though. I dropped mine on the highway and just shined up the skegs a little when it got to the end of the rope. Never forgot to tie it down after that episode.

I bet that McGinty guy has one!

Seriously I have thought of this many times and haven't yet pulled the trigger. I have often thought that getting 25-30 Benjamins in my wallet and driving through Minnesota for a weekend would solve the problem pretty quickly. These things are often parked by the side of the road there with a sign on them and the times I saw something I liked I didn't have time to piss around or the right vehicle to get it bought and home.

Minnesota is full of Lund boats. I use to drive my buddy's charter boat on Lake Michigan during the summer weekends and often as not we would run out 15-20 miles for the Skamania rainbows. Sure enough come hell or high water and often enough it was high water, those Minnesota guys with the 16' Mr. Pike Lunds would be right out there with us. It's a wonder that we didn't drown more than we did.
