$2000 for the motor? That leaves a lot of money. I have seen some awful nice complete Vags and Rangers go for a lot less.

 I initially thought it was high and it probably is.  It depends on the age and condition of the motor. It isn't easy to find a nicely restored boat with a newer motor. I found it surprisingly difficult to find a late model short shaft for my Vagabond. If I bought a new one, I'd have close to having 10k in the boat which just seems like too much money to sink into a 14-foot boat.

I think the ask on the Ranger is way too high.

That's a nice Ranger despite not being polished aluminum. I had a solid '48 Vagabond that I wanted to make like this one, with a late-model motor.  I sold it because I decided that it was going to end up costing me more than I wanted to spend.  The asked on this boat isn't unreasonable because it costs 10k to produce something like that. I don't know if the seller is going to be able to get that for his effort.

I think we have seen this one before but I always like to see a Firefly.

I am 90% sure they will but I have never hooked mine up. I didnt have instructions. I knew from application charts it should work and started searching for one. This ebay add has the instructions and I could read enough to understand what to do so now I'm confident to try. Ground to motor, hot to mag wire I'm going to use the cut off lead. Power in apparently only operates the light so that will get hooked to the bow light switch.
