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?

I wouldn't buy from a family member...recourse, recourse...but I agree with BNS... 100 bucks.

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.

    • I know I would  That bacon really looked good!!!
    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.

    • Hello everyone, I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore. I will be helping with a class for families to try ice fishing and am looking to show them the variety of baits to use. Is there anything in St. Paul? Why don't we have more bait shops anymore.
