Avon 5.0, Johnson 70, fishing setup, lots of spare parts

Avon 5m Rigid Inflatable, '93 Johnson 70hp, spare outdrive, circuit board, and carbs. I actually bought it on RibNet a couple years back. This is a former rescue boat converted from jockey console to center console with 2 bench seats, live well, 7 rod holders (I've trolled 5 rods at a time), crab davit, boarding ladder, vhf radio with 6ft antenna, GPS, fish finder, 20 gallon tank, bruce anchor and chain, spare prop and more. Smooth, dry ride in anything less than 3ft chop, the boat can take far more abuse than I can. Cruises at 20kts, tops out at 34kts loaded. I take this boat to Catalina (about an hour from LB) all the time and hardly ever ship a drop of seawater. Always stored covered and serviced regularly. Recently cleaned the carbs, new plugs, outdrive service, water pump, etc. I stripped a blown Johnson 70 for spare parts, which are also included with the boat. This makes service quick and convenient, since I can clean the carb and service the lower unit in the shop, have them ready and change them out when needed, the changeout takes less than an hour. Trailer just got rebuilt, new internally greased axle, hubs, seals, springs and hardware, all USA parts. Ready to go to baja, I've gone as far as Bay of LA (and a little farther), people down there always try and buy it. I didn't think I'd ever sell it, but here we are. Search around for info on these boats (avon 5.0 avon 5.4), the guys in the UK take these things into some serious weather. Please be ready with cash in hand before calling. Open to offers, come check it out! Asking $6900, will drop the price weekly if I still have it, or make an offer and save me the trouble! Located in Torrance, CA. Call or text (310) 634-6five66 (text preferred)
