Default How much is it worth??

I bought a Mini Hawk and I need an outboard engine for it. I found this one on Ebay and it's exactly what I need. Short shaft 25 HP Merc with remote steering.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEBI%3AIT


I'm the high-bidder but haven't met the sellers reserve price. Does anyone know what it's worth (or have one to sell me at a good price!!)

Craig

Small outboards tend to hold thier value MUCH better than big ones. I guess this will sell for around $2k.

what is the max capacity of that boat? i think you need to go bigger anyway to make it fun 40hp would be decent.

The guy that I bought it from (Greg) told me that a 25 is perfect for the boat. A 40 HP will work, but it will be scary as hell and unstable!

He said that with a 25 HP the boat will go about 38 mph (which will feel like about 80 in that small of a boat) and I will be able to throw the keys to anyone and not be worried about them killing themselves (or someone else). The hull only weighs about 250 lbs.

Craig, I'll check around here, there are tons of small outboards at the places here near the river, so they should all be freshwater units anyway. Any specific brand? How old will you go? Small ob's run forever. I have 78, 9.8 horse merc that runs like new.

Thanks Joe. I'm looking for a Merc 25 or a Johnson/Evinrude 30. Short shaft, remote steering/shift. I have an OMC shifter/throttle setup that is brand new. I'm going to use that or sell/trade it if I get a Merc (which is what I would rather have).
I don't want a really old one, but I don't want to spend much more than $1000 either.

I really just don't know a thing about what I'm looking for... or what it's worth for that matter.

Craig,
A friend has a 2001 30 HP Yamaha electric start long shaft for sale for $2,500.00 It's got the tiller controls. I know it's not what you want, but thought I'd send you the info for comparison.
