Anyone have a guess on the odds of finding a 20-35hp long shaft for around 1000 or less???.. just upgraded from a 14ft to a 16ft deep v.. now I need to find a motor..
Thanks smallie... Boats going to be primary a river boat.. saginaw at that.. might try bay shallows but that will depend on what size motor I find.Finding the engine should be easy. Finding one even used for less than $100/hp is all but impossible unless it is in poor shape and really old or you are extremely lucky and are the first person to become aware of someone just simply looking to get rid of something fast that they don't know what the true value of it is. I'd be less worried of a used one that you may have to work on a little if it is going to be a small lake or river boat but if you plan on hitting the bay and it is your only motor I'd want something very reliable and you are going to pay a lot more for that. Good luck though and I'll keep my eyes and ears open for ya.

Always check here first. Never know what he might have and he warranties them for a year. Heck I had a 20hp for like 5 years off him and guy wouldnt take a dime a couple times I had him look at it and tweak a couple things.Check Saginaw Marina Mel might have one.
