i need advice if this is a good price or not

6 posts in this topic

I dont know if this is in the right place but heres my question. My dad is looking at a boat and he doesnt want to spend very much on it so we were looking at a 86 Lund Mr. Pike console with a 86 Suzuki oil injected motor. i would just like to know if this is a good price the guy is asking 4500 for it. the specs are this.
i think it is around 16 or 16'5"
60 hp Suzuki Oil injected
bow livewell
eagle flasher on console and lowrance flasher on bow.
it has a 2002 54lb thrust Minn kota Maxxum with a 24 volt system
i think that is about all the important stuff i would just like to know if thats a good price or not.
My dad also talked to his boss and his boss told him that some dealers say that, that model of suzuki oil injected engines are bad and they see alot that will blow up (not literally) or just kind of break down bad. Do any of you guys have any expierience with these motors or do you know if they are nice or not? sorry about the long post but thank you very much for any info.
the boat also comes with a Yacht club bunk trailer.

I think you should shop around. Check the NADA value guide. I see old Lund pike boats like you're describing selling for 24-2800 range in my area all the time.

Sounds high to me as well... Usually you'll pay more than NADA on used boats from what I've seen, but you should be closer than you are. Maybe 3k...

I think it's high too, especially this time of the year. I have almost same boat for sale and I am asking $2,000 less.

I would shop around, NADA is not much help, they really mess up trades in Minnesota, and their quotes many times are way too low or way too high.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
