Haines huntee v17
Steering is a tweaked version of the original old pulley system with brand new cables and self-retracting springs. Swivel seats were also installed along with top quality backbench at the rear, brand new Bimini along with other and all the bells and whistles we could think of. Over the years there was no expense spared. The trailer is old but she goes!
It comes with a recently serviced 1977 Johnson 35HP with forward controls and electric start. Included in the price is 1977 Johnson 25hp, the 35hp starts first time however needs a new water pump we suspect. The 25hp took some convincing the last time we started her, but she started, with some TLC both motors still have plenty of life in them. Oars, anchor and launch / retrieve rope, 25l and 20l fuel tanks, life jackets and a ski rope are also included.
The reason we are selling is that our time has come and gone, we no longer have the time to take it out, and it seems a shame to watch something that gave us so much joy dwindle it the shed… It is a regretful sale but I cannot justify keeping this old girl with so much left to offer.
The boat tows really well and we currently pull it with a Hyundai sonata which has no issues getting it to where we want to go, it’s very easy to launch and retrieve from the ramp.
The boat isn't perfect as it was a home restoration job. There is a little bit of overspray here and there and some minor imperfections in the paint. But she looks brilliant and draws a lot of attention and discussion where it goes.
Please feel free to ask any questions you might have. I would like to see it go to a caring home.
