Wanted 18' 19' 20' Ohio area
« on: August 07, 2018, 04:40:54 PM »
Still looking for water ready 18' 19' 20' Carlson (1970s, 1980s)  in Ohio or few hrs out of Ohio.  I know this a MN-area forum, but MN is 12-14 hr drive one-way too far.

Looking for leads, have cash.
Thanks - Frank

Just an excuse to come to the annual meeting at Treasure Island.  There are several turn key boats available for sale from members.  No better place to make a deal on a boat.  Fly in, rent a truck to pull home your new addition.  Maybe I'm not the one to ask, I drove from Omaha to nearly NYC for my last boat(Timi).

A 24 hour drive for the perfect boat is nothing. I also recommend coming out to red wing. Take one for a test drive!

Hello - I'm still out here shopping. 

I have looked at 2 CVX18 in the $7000 range.  Prices didn't support condition  :(  First boat was original motor and wood structures, but cosmetically updated.  Transom flexing.  3.5 hr drive to see second boat. Craiglist ad only had the good pictures, in person view was terrible. Merc motor would not start.  Owner was one of the "as far as I know" types.  Merc motor had 60PSI compression on cyl 1.  Trailer crossbeam was rusted and unsafe.

There is a updated CVX23 with jet 4 hrs away.  Called, emailed, txted, no reply.  I think it is a fake ad used for info harvesting.


No luck yet.  Still shopping  ! ! !

Tim's CVX18 might not be perfect, but at least you know what your getting.

Yes, sure looks nice. 

I would want a windshield and side grab bars to complete the look.  Love Olds motor!  Berkeley jet pump I'm sure is fine, but I would want trim control.  Might as well add a rooster booster too.  Lol. 

I have seen some of the Carlsons with original 1970s interiors, how cool, but cushions wore out.

For me, the financials don't add up.  $7900 boat + $4000 personalized add ons = $12k boat.  And who knows what is lurking under the floor of a 1976 boat!!  :o

So, I'll keep shopping for a few more weeks and then go into hibernation during fall/winter.

Fall is definitely the time to swing a good deal on a boat before winter arrives.  $12K for a very good condition CVX-20 jet is really not outrageous, they are highly desired Carlson models.  Have you posted any wanted ads or checked with locals Marina's or boat supply houses?  I've seen some decent craft for sale at Bass Pro.  If it doesn't happen this fall, it does give you time to bolster your boat fund.
