RE: Wanted: Single Screw, Sedan on Mississippi in MN, WI or IA

Welcome Aboard and Good Luck in your search. I am located at Mile 490. Upper Mississippi. I bought my boat a year ago in Nashville, and ran it up river in June. There are not many trawlers on the river, In my area (the Quad Cities) there aren't more 10 in a metro area of 400,000 divided by the river. I have seen more in the Twin Cities, but not that many there either. You can get to the T.C.'s from Duluth by water though (ha, probably 1500 miles) I have seen several there. There are a lot of good values to be had, if your willing to travel.

Hey Craig,

Sounds like a great trip (& beautiful boat)! I'm going to take my time & hope something local comes along...

I took a look at the Gulfstar below but the restoration would be too much & she's an aft. If only it was a Grand Banks... I'd like to salvage the engine though.

We have a place at MM 645 so let me know when you're headed North!

Mile 645 eh?** Without my charts that would be Winneshiek?, Harpers Ferry? or Lynxville?* Been To that area Many, many times.* Planning on heading up again this Summer if all works out.

Cap'n Craig has a good idea. *Why don't you buy a boat on the Tennessee or Cumberland River, and have a delightful trip home. *Woodsong (Tony) is a yacht broker on the river. *He would be glad to assist you. *Many people on the forum have cruised these waters. *You won't be disappointed.

Don,

I've had the bug since honeymooning/bareboating (& fixing) on the intracoastal on a Grand Banks...
For my starter she needs to be relatively close & cheap! Maybe in (15) years when the (4) kids are older I'll be dreaming bigger & enjoying those long trips again...

Congratulations. Do plan to to keep her at Harpers Ferry? If you ever head south, look me up. Mile 487. Isle of Capri marina, about 5 miles south of L&D 14. We do need pictures though.
