65aircooled Posted July 19, 2013 Report Share Posted July 19, 2013 (edited) Hello all! I am new to the site and to boats in general. I am considering buying sord of an "all around" type of boat and I like the 20-22' walkaround fishing boats. I have been looking around in marinas around my area, asking questions and looking for a decent quality and decent price boat that I can purchase. My brother who lives in Costa Rica owns a 21" cc polar for about a year and is already looking to upgrade to a 26" WA so he can better accommodate his family of 5. I will not be using it every day during the season and my 2 boys are 7 and 9 so I think a 21' would fit us perfect. Anyway, this coming Sunday I am supposed to be looking at an original owner 1996 2140 Robalo with the original Mercury 225HP (guessing not fuel injected and unknown hrs) 2 stroke engine with no trailer. The boat is stored off season and power washed/ cleaned and under coated (whatever that means) and put in the water from April to Oct every year. Owned by a female who says kids have grown and has no more use or time for the boat. She said the toilet hasn't been used in years so there is no saying on wether it even works. All cabin cushions are missing but other than that in "very good" used condition. It has a hard top and dual gps/fish finders. I guess what I want to do is take advantage of your vast knowledge and also know what to look for when I go see the boat on Sunday. Also if there are ppl here that own or have owned 2140's it'd be great to hear your opinions on this specific boat, know how choppy is the ride, are there any know problems with this particular model/brand and also any good or bads that you may know about them. Owner wants $7K which seems fair based on what I have seen on the Internet and at marinas so far. Boat is located in NJ Any input would be greatly appreciated.
