'73 Evinrude 18hp

2 posts in this topic

I have the motor listed in the subject. I spent a lot of time wrenching on it and got it running pretty good.

New impeller,

rebuilt Lower Unit,

fuel pump with only some test hours on it

rebuilt Carburetor.

New fuel hoses. Internal not from the tank to the motor.

This spring I had a problem that made me decide to quit wrenching and buy a motor I could fish with. So I bought an '83 Evinrude 15hp. Turns out the problem with the 18 was a pinhole leak in the bulb on the fuel line.

My question is this,What is a fair price for the 18hp?

I am not a pro mechanic so the hours into the labor on the motor are not factored into the price as far as I am concerned.

$300-$400. But, you never know who might come along...

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
