I've bought and sold dozens of boats and motors over the last 25 years, If the guy wants $1200 for the package shown he's likely delusional enough that he wouldn't consider the $600-$700 it's really worth. Honestly, even at $600, I think I'd pass. I'd just keep looking and finds something newer and or with better potential to be trouble free for a little while anyway.. FWIW, I gave $1000 for a 14' Grumman fisherman with galvanized trailer and decent running 98' 15 hp merk 2 years back. You should be able to find something similar for similar $. (Especially this time of year.)Thank you all for the reply’s this is very helpful information. The motor is very old yes. Only 5.5hp and really not even something I want to factor into the equation as I have not intention to use it. Currently the boat and trailer is $1200 or best offer. I am looking to buy here in winter to try and find a good deal and have time to work on it if needed.
