I have found a 21'.10" Lund Baron Magnum with a 225 Mercury Opt max on it. It is fully loaded with a kicker motor, trolling motor, wrap around foul weather cover, heavy duty tatum trailer, rod holders, sonar, VHF, etc. All items are about 8 or 9 years old and in average condition. Motor has less than 25 hours on it, which means that it has not been broken in good or so I've been told. Price is going to be between $12,500 and $14,500. It cost around $45,000 in late 2000 or early 2001. But, one thing bothers me and that is the 225 Mercury Opt max. It has been covered and just sitting for seven years. The owner died and his widow just let it sit for all these years. Also, she says that I can bring a battery over and some gas and start the engine or I can put it in the lake and run it with her in attendance. I told her that I rather take it to a certified Mercury mechanic and have him check it out. She is not keen on that for what reasons I don't know. If I run it what should I listen for or observe? I don't think I will pursue the deal unless I let my motor man check it out. What do y'all think. Also of concern is what kind of stablizer did she put in the gas tank seven years ago. I have heard that StaBil can do damage to the gas tank.
