Default 16' Center Console

I saw that 16 in Boats4Sale and was wondering if anyone had any experience/opinions on it.

have any of you guys ridden in one? I'm lookign for a little bay boat to fish out of that will be easy to trailer and I think this fills the bill.

I spoke to John and he's given me some valuable info on the usual places to look for rot/etc...

what do you guys think a project 16 is really worth?

Sean,

I just took a peak at that ad.
You could turn that into a real gem.
I think it would be sweet to bay fish from.
You could get up in some really shallow water.

Mine was sweet! I "gave" it away for 2K less motor. They are getting harder to find & I kick myself in the ass for getting rid of it. The 16's believe it or not handle some ruff water & also handle some big power. I had a 200 on it. Now if it only had a pad...

If you need any parts, give Coen a call at Superboats (631-226-1761). We also still have all the templates for the 16. Good luck. I'll be here for advise if you need it.

thanks rick...

everything is all there...just need to strip it and repaint the floor...gel is in good shape, i'm going to remove the bottom paint, wet sand and compound the entire hull, deck and console...add new harward like pop up cleats, new nav lights...new dash and then find some power for it.

hey...just to be sure, ask john if the floor was always glass over wood and not a liner...this boat has no liner.

and oh yeah...i'm gonna need some superboat stickers!

The floor is fiberglass over wood. A layer of 1 1/2 oz mat and 22 oz roving. Thats how they all are.
