Bring a truck and come out for a ride in my Feather Craft. The motor is at our island...


Steve, you want to see if my 50hp will fit in the carry on for the flight back? A pair of anything is usually more desirable than a single example.:cheer:


Alan,

I am going to have to pass on that, maybe your next trip over we can load it in to your boat...

They drive me crazy sometimes. And so darn expensive for the bigger ones too.

I have this exact motor plus single lever shifter in the shed at our cottage. It was on my parents pontoon and overheated. Its been sitting there ever since. Would love to get rid of it...
