After buying th lil jon boat almost 2 yrs ago, and all th work I did to try to get th motor that came with it to run, then buyin a smaller one and still no dice.....Today I went to th flea mkt to look for some chairs for th dinning table, I came across a 1967 9.5 hs evinrude. looked at th sticker, th guy was askin $350 for it. So I stopped an asked some ?'s he was more than helpful, told me everything about th motor while it was in his possession. So after talkin to him for about 1/2 an hour an a quick discussion w/th wifey, she said either th motor or th dodge, I dont get both, so ........th kids an I had a GRREEAAAAT time tooolin around th lake w/my new motor for like 4 hrs. Now this next month I can start runnin my trots. I AM SOOOO STOKED. It was funny, w/just me an th motor th front of th boat sat so high in th air, I thought for sure I was gonna take on water just takin off, but nope, just needed a lil weight in front an we r good to go.
