Advice on replacing mer 25?

2 posts in this topic

I have a mid 80's mer 25 on a lund 16' and I would like to move up to a electric start 4 stroke motor, kinda like the yamahas but am open to suggestions, dont want to go smaller in hp and boat is rated for a 35hp but I think they were looking at a 2 stroke motor weight. Any ideas to size and makes that could be found used or am I going to have to buy new?

Any brand will work fine up to 35hp, even if 4 strokes. Marke is a little funny right now, I would start browsing online sales, etc.

I found more luck buying a complete rig, then sell boat and trailer, many times I end up getting a motor for few dollars, but many people don't want the hassle of doing this.

To anybody that will reply below, please don't post any offer to sell or buy (That's what the for sale and items wanted forums are for), or your reply will be deleted and you might risk suspension, read the rules on top of page.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
