Mid 60's 18 hp fast twin evinrude

21 posts in this topic

this is a good running motor just needs a carburetor cleaning due to the fact that it doesnt run great at low speeds other than that it has worked very well for me. I had it on an older 16 ft lund and it pushed it 23 mph. i would like to get 350 for it but give me a call and maybe we can work something out. I could deliver this motor if need be.

I have school untill 2:20 anyways, so that will probably be fine, unless we go to our cabin (just realized we were going) before 5 but I doubt it. I wont be able to call in the morning because I will be at school, so I will just have to call later on friday, unless you want me to call tonight. smirk.gif

yes possibly tonite. My dad will be home any minute now, but we are going to see a 45 minute movie at the I Max theatre, but after that possibly. I just found two 25 horse motors on craigslist for a little bit more money than yours that I am interested in as well. IO still would definitely like to check yours out, because I dont want to get your hopes up of a sale, and say no. I am not saying this for you to lowere the price or anything, but just wanted to tell you that I have some others to look at possibly.

My dad just got home, and tonite will not work. Sorry it will have to be tomorrow after five. We drive basically through farmington to get to our cabin, so we should be able to find time.

I wish we didnt have to go frown.gif

sounds okay does that mean you buy it tomorrow if you like it or does it mean you have to look at those other motors first? youre not going to find a better deal than this because i am just trying to get rid of it. Another thing is that for some reason this motor is a very fast 18 horse because i have had a 15 horse motor on my boat and its not comparable at all so thats another thing to think about.

It is going to have to be sunday or monday now mad.gif

We are leaving now so I cant check it out until sunday. To be honest, I dont even know if my dad is interested in those others, so we will check yours out first, and if it is the right buy, we will get it. Im sorry about that frown.gif

I will be sure to write down your number, and call you, so we can see it on our way back home. ttyl.

I hate to be stubborn, but if this other motor that I saw is still for sale, I am going to check it out. Sorry I didn't call, didn't want to bother you at work. This other motor is a short shaft(Which is what i really need) a bit more power, newer parts, and such, plus its at about the same price, so I hope you can understand my reasoning for not purchasing yours right now. It may be up to a week before I see this other one (that is if it is still for sale) so I will get back to you when I decide. I am still considering yours, but if I don't I wish you good luck, and I think yours will sell pretty fast, because it is a good deal.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.
