what's it worth

12 posts in this topic

Brother in law is selling me his 87, 7.5 hp evinrude motor. But he failed to tell me what he wants for it and stated to me to figure out a price I am willing to pay for it. So what you how much do you all think it is worth?

In all honesty I would say it's worth a little more than everyone is saying, especially if it runs good. Small used outboards are hard to come by these days, I would say $200 would be a good deal for you, $250 is probally the most I would spend.

I have a 1980 7&1/2 HP Johnson 1 or 2 pull runs excellent, that if someone offered 250.00 I'd laugh at em!I may think of selling it at $400.00 But thats iffy.

I would say under $200 is a good deal and over $250 is too much but thats me. Some meay say over that but I wouldnt pay it.

seriously though...$250-$300 if it's nice. Must start and run without a hitch. Must have a good prop. IMO if an old outboard "needs a tune-up", you might as well use it as an anchor. It's a sign of neglect and poor maintenance and storage practices. Sure you can pay $100 and stick another $250 into it, but I'd rather buy one with a good track record and good physical appearance for the same $350.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick! 
    • In regards to casement windows, I have always been a fan.... Primarily, because the harder the wind blows, the better seal that you are getting. Don't get me wrong - there are drawbacks such as size restrictions, maintenance of the cranking mechanism, etc... but I like them
