Looking to buy this 1982 Bahner, Guy said it was a old circle boat. Will it hold up? Be as durable as a heavy lake boat if I use it at the lake with alot of weight in it! Just wondering if the ice-chest will fall thru the thing if I hit a wake? Fiberglass transom. skinney stringers,can it handle it or is it more for one guy going fast? Thanks for any help.

Alot of circle boats arent all that light. How heavy is it? I know most the 18 bahners ive seen on the river are on the light side anyways.

Looks like someone installed a turning skag on the keel?
Dont believe that bahners ever came with that stock?

Wouldn't hurt to install a decent rail kit. imo I don't understand the pump brace with those wimpy mounts. Just stay off the deck, I see a support for the dash so its probably pretty thin. nice boat though run it

My dad says this boat was built 1982 and was owned by Mike Sudwic from orange county, My dad was the one that Blue printed the bottom and the turning fins was built by Bob Johnson. the Boat had a 496 injected big block done by Glenn Ward. The boat ran 94 in circle hard ware! Boat also weighs 340#
