1992 20 HP Merc. Value

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone could give me a rough value of this motor?

It has ran well for me for the last ten years , but then left me stranded on the Croix a couple weeks ago.

I have since picked up a Yamaha 25 2 stroke and so far like it alot.

My transom is toast and needs to be fixed and the guy who has my Merc. tells me he will rebuild my transom and rewire my boat trailer for an even trade on the merc.

I like the idea, but do not want to take it in the shorts on such a deal.

I called a place in Princton who rebuilds boats and they quoted me at around 700.00 to fix the transom on my 14' aluminum boat.

I was shocked at the price, but am now considering the trade.

Just looking for some opinion's on what some of you would do.

Thanks

no, nada is a site that has boat and motor pricing, from which you can pick your year and model and go from there. use google to find "nada" HSOforum and follow the directions on the site that you end up on.

    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....
    • bigger garage!!
    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
