Any Small Boat, seaworthy enough to be used on St. Clair River near Port Huron, Michigan

by Richard
(Port Huron, MI USA)

This is a shot in the dark but, I'm moving back to Michigan from Montana.

I'm 57 years old & I've been Perm. Disabled for the past 20+ years.

I know Port Huron sits at the mouth of Lake Huron & the St. Clair River.

I live on a fixed income from SS Disability so, FREE would be appreciated but, if there is a boat available for a reasonable price, I would be willing to negotiate terms.

I have a collection of Firearms I would be willing to trade, if interested.

I am just looking for a small boat that can be used for fishing in the location noted.

I found this page by looking for DIY Plans to build a boat but, I really don't have wood-working skills or a place to work at since I'll be living in a Senior/Disabled HUD Apartment building.

I would also need a motor as rowing would be hard for me physically.

I realize it's a lot to ask for but, I thought I would post this comment and hope for the best.

Thank-you in advance,

Thanks Dean Bachelor,

I hadn't thought of Craigslist, thanks.

I haven't moved back to Michigan yet so, I'm just looking around at this time. I don't have anywhere to put a boat at this time.

I will probably be back in Michigan around March/April.

I do appreciate your offer & I will take a look at what is available on craigslist while I'm getting ready to move.

I can help
