    Would any of you guys know what a 25 horsepower, electric start, 4 year old, Mariner in good shape may be worth. I may invest in one and I don't want to pay more than it's value. Thanks.

    Well, first of all, it's going to matter whether it's a 4-stroke or a 2-stroke. 4-strokes are going to be more. More cost, more maintenance, more, more, more. They're quieter, but....

    My first shot would be to call a marina not in your area. I've often price shopped used products by pretending to be selling one. I'll ask what they'll offer, then add 30-40%. Example, if they say they'll give you $1,500 for it, then it's worth $2,000.

    Good luck.

    An advisor on another fishing board told me to check e-bay, so I did. Thanks for your help.
