Title: Looking for an Outboard motor
Post by: brandonroland on March 30, 2011, 09:00:20 AM
looking for an outboard motor, 15" - 20" shaft, 40HP preferably but might go a little smaller. Need controls, no tiller. i'd like a 4 stroke if the price is right since this thing has a built in tank.

Anybody know of a place around here with a good used selection?

Waiting on a couple replies for ya.  I know you want to try and buy the motor where they will install it
for you all at once.  I know it can get pricey buying the motor separate then going somewhere to have it put on.

C I am open to that. I'm just hoping I can find a place to install it by the 8th.

i got a motor. couldnt find a used motor that fits this boat, in fact what I needed is pretty rare I guess. (20 - 40 w/ short shaft, and controls instead of tiller). I couldnt spring for the 40 but ordered a new 20HP mercury 4 stroke. boat will be ready next thursday, stoked.

a 20 is all you really need. A 40 would make that boat sketchy when running wide open.

That's a fun looking boat BRoll.  I got a similar boat about a year ago and it's so nice to get out there away from the crowds.

kind of wish I had a stearing wheel though mine's got the 25 merc with the tiller.

Cool shot of your boy. He will be stoked to take that thing out by himself one day I bet.

thanks sean. he loves the boat, calls it 'cool boat' and wants to sit in it everytime we go outside now, lol. my pops bought the hull for me, i was gonna buy a john boat w/ a merc 9.9 and he surprised me with the boat and told me to buy the engine. it's a 1969, crazy good shape for how old it is. now with the new engine it's sure to be around when my son is old enough to use it himself.

Don't fish with dead shrimp & keep your bait off the bottom  :fishy:

buttt..... I didnt have any bobbers so my bait was probably on the bottom that night. I tied the weight like 1/2 way up the leader line which was about 3' long, hoping it would give the shrimp some line to move around.

I got some bobbers the next day on a tip from my father in law and didnt catch shit just kept getting my bait stolen. I couldnt feel the line like I could without the bobber. shit load of bites but couldnt land anything. I was fishing at night when I caught everything , fishing during the day didnt catch shit. just gotta get back in the groove of it I guess. wanna fish w/ some lures my father in law suggested.

Count me in! Walker knows this area better than I do.  My areas of expertise are down south a ways.

Brandon,
How does that thing run with the 20 on it?  Plenty fast?  Too slow??
