Times and lives change, so what I never would have considered even a year ago is happening now. The time has come to simplify life and only run 1 boat, so the Circus Boat is up for sale. A great river boat with excellent manners and decent speed (GPS'ed best at 72.3), one of the first Advantage boats using the tried and true Rogers design hull. As many of you know, I've had this boat for years and actually RUN it..... not a trailer queen and certainly not perfect.
Couldn't get the pics to post here, so see links below
