1999 1950 Tyee Mag I/O

7 posts in this topic

What do you think? Buddy wants to buy one. We looked at it tonight, 2nd owner wants 18K give take for it. It has the standard dock rash with a few dents. Comes with newer 70 lb thrust Minn Kota, Lowrance 111CHD and another Eagle GPS combo up front. Trailer looks like a well worn Shorelander dual axle. Carpet is probably in about 60% of its shape. Comes with 99 15hp kicker. Seats are in great shape for a 99.

This will be his first boat, so I am excited for him to get it, however was wanting the experts (you) opinions of what you would expect to pay. His wife is excited, but apprehensive, naturally.

What is everyone's opinions on the I/O? Never owned one so I don't have a lot of input. It is a consignment at a dealership. Dealership offered to take family out for a test spin on the mighty Mo.

I know this isn't enough info to go on, but I would personally rate the "looks" of the boat at about a 7.0 out of 10.

My old man just picked up a 2001 1950 tyee magnum with ITS and a 15 hp 4 stroke kicker. Full top and snap on cover Lowrance graph. Excellent shape with very little scratches and very low hours on the motors for $16500. I might say it is a bit high priced??

It does seem like a bit much for that rig... that said though, I do think shmick_shmacky's dad got a pretty good deal on his rig.

Have you / has he done much comparison shopping? I'd look into that a little bit before you / he settles on a price.

Based off the description I would also say 18 sounds a tad high for that boat. Hard to tell without a some pics.

As a side note, the larger windshield lunds are a great all around family boat..very comfortable, IMO. Between a couple friends, family and myself we own five of them. (17 Fisherman, 18 Fisherman, 1950 Tyee Mag, 20 Fisherman, 20 Fisherman)

Good times!!

I agree. He (we) are looking at comparables and it seems high considering the shape it is in. If it was a little cleaner, I would have him jump on it.

I have a 1996 1850 Tyee I/O and have been happy with it. It's easy on the gas, has plenty of power. The engine has been reliable with only a fuel pump issue that was fixed under warranty. The asking price might be high. You could offer less and wait and see. There are lots of boats for sale.

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
