  1. PICS FROM MY PHONE ARE TO BIG TO UP LOAD???? I SENT THEM TO JOHNYP
  2. how about an action shot of Lees boat with a marlin hooked and jumping?
  3. I have some pics , but there dark cause its sun down by the time I get home from work I will post good ones tomorrow since I'm off. I'm sorry this isn't a robalo I'm still a lover of robalo. I sold my 19 ft to an older retired friend that has Time to make that boat better than new He needed a hobbie as his wife passed from cancer a coue of years ago He is an amazing wood worker He builds guitars by hand as a hobbie I will keep my eyes open and will be looking for a nice 23 ft cc robalo As my next up grade I will enjoy this one I hope till then
  4. I wasn't expecting to buy anything this weekend, so I didn't have a compression tester at home. I just saw a boat I liked and struck a great deal on it. Boats a 1995 , motor is a 96. This was the 2nd owner of the boat. He owned it since 1999. The boat , trailer , and motor were as clean as could be. That's how he kept it. Every light works on the trailer ,all new tires (less than a year) all electronics on the boat work , has a wash down and live well, both work, solid boat, has chips and scratches, needs to be buffed and waxed ,but no damage any where. Motor had every service done and he had them done every year. The motor hood is faded on the sides cause he has a tall car port like for an rv that he parked the boat under, but the sun still hit the sides. open the hood and the motor looks new. the motor was ice cold when I got there and it started up second crank, almost the first crank. Took a min or two for it to start pissing as the thermostat needed to open, then it had a strong flow. I think the trans shift rod needs adjustment cause it clanked shifting the gears . but all works good, very clean, no leaks at all. under the hood is a bag with a pull start string that has never been touched. Nice stainless prop. Trailer is galvanized channel , axles were clean galvanized and no rust at all. Boat tows like a dream , must be light weight. My Tahoe didn't know it was back there. No trailer brakes, and no problem stopping at all.
  5. IM LOOKING AT A BOAT LATER TODAY WITH A 1996 200 HP MERC 2 STROKE. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY GOOD OR BAD ON THESE MOTORS??? ANYTING TO LOOK FOR I MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT BEING I ONLY MESSED WITH EVENRUDE / JOHNSONS CARBED MOTORS THANKS.
  6. The trailer is leaf springs The boats been for sale for a long time He listed it originally for $4900. Then $3900 after a few mo. Now $3000. And he's sticking to it for now at least I think it's not the value of the boat, it's the money owed to him that he's trying to recover He must be loosing his a$$ on this Someone owed him a lot of money and he took a few cars and boats to cover his loss But the guy sold the motor from the boat before this guy got the boat from him
  7. I offered him $1500. he said he wont sell me the boat and to stop being a pest lol
  8. Went and checked out the boat Jell coat is rough on the bottom but nothing deep Top is solid transom feels good but has an aluminum plate inside just big enough to cover the bolt patern of the motor I see two jell coat cracks at the top of the transom that line up with the top bolt holes less than a half inch long To the stainless trim The trailer axles are rotted flaking rust and so are the support brackets that hold the wood rails up the boat sits on Tail lights are cracked It's rough but the aluminum parts look good All guages , radios, speakers , controles , and the hydrolic rack asy for steering is gone with the motor What's it worth now? Walk away or offer???
  9. I'm going to try and see it on my lunch brake if I have time See what condition it's in Anyone know what the 85 hull is worth with a trailer? If it's in good condition So I can base a value on it to what I find?
  10. Hey Johnny , I was told my 200 is a 225, that there is no motor difference are there any pics on here of this model boat to compare to?
  11. thanks guys, has the transom been cut down for a short shaft, or is that factory ?
