    Default Does anyone know another place to look for used drift boats?

    I have looked through Craigslist and Alaskaslist. Is there anywhere else to look for used drift boats in Alaska? Is there a "used drift boat store?"

    Alaska raft and Kayak I think has some. I'm sure craigslist and alaskaslist are your best bet. Whats your price range? Size requirements? Any specs you're looking for?

    There is also http://907bigboytoys.com/

    You should also try looking around at local used car dealerships sometimes they have them. Even try looking in kenai/soldotna. That is where I found my koffler driftboat.

    This is the place where i got my boat. Penninsula Park and Sell. The link is for a driftboat at the dealership posted on craigslist.

    Depending on your time frame, having someone bring something up from Oregon or Washington is another option. Every once in a while someone will post on www.ifish.net looking for someone who is driving up and offer to pay some of their gas to tow a boat up. You'd probably have better luck in the spring or summer.

    There has been a DB on craigslist up here for $2500, I sold the exact same boat in Oregon for $1200 before I moved up here (I bought it for $1600 when the economy was a little better).

    Point is, for a lot of reasons, your drift boat dollar will go a lot further down there. If you can offer someone $500 of gas money to bring it up for you and take them fishing for a day or two when they get here you'll be money ahead and, more importantly, have a wider choice of boats to look at. It involves a little risk but if you meet someone now who's planning a trip up next year you can minimize some of the risk.

    Of course, if you want a boat tomorrow. . . .

    She loves her boat and I do too. It is perfect for what we do. Plus she catches all the fish while I am on the sticks so that helps. I would not trade my drifter for the world right now but you do have a sweet setup

    Toby,

    You may want to consider researching rafts and drift boats a bit further before pulling the trigger. Your intended usage will dictate which is best. I would imagine winter would be a good time to get a good deal on either. Not suggesting I have the patience for this, but it could be a wise move.

    You and me both man. When I want something, I want it yesterday.

    It is far easier to give good advice than follow it.
