    Right now I have a evinrude 5.5 on my 16' jon. My girlfriends grandpa who

    sold me the boat has an 82' or 84' 9.9 evinrude. He has offered to trade me

    for my 5.5 (1962) plus $450.00. Now he takes very good care of his

    equipment and is or was an evinrude tech. He is also a preacher lol. So I

    think he is trying to jip me. Any Ideas, or questions I should ask him.

    I did borrow it over the summer, and where i live i have docked all summer

    in the back yard. the limit on that water is 10hp and I think it would work

    well enough to be safe on the river. What do you guys think?

    If he wants you to give him $450.00 plus your motor, :eek:oooh: To me it sounds like a heck of a deal (for him) :smile2: I wouldn't but I am cheap. :roll_eyes:

    If they both run equally well I wouldnt give any more than $150 with a trade. Thats the extreme high end too.:smile2:
    Good luck.
