Where to buy a used Merc 115

10 posts in this topic

Mine went bad, where is a good reliable place to buy one. Mine was a '81 so somewhere in that year, I could go up to a 150 if the $ is right. Thanks

I would give Val a call and see what he has on hand. He has much inventory and it would be worth the call.

Craiglist, Boat trader magizines, All Marina's in your area.

The Sunday paper want ads "tribune".

What is your price point?

Do you need the controls, tilt and trim?????

Been looking thru all that stuff, If I go with the merc I have the controls and tilt and trim. I am considering a rebuilt for around $2500, just looking for the best deal.

Do you need the controls, tilt and trim?????

I seriously doubt you can get anything for $ 150.00. I am sure you meant $ 1,500.00

This time of the year is really tough to find motors.

Valv, I think he means he can go up to 150hp if the price is right.

Yes I did, but I ended up finding a old boat with a '94 115 Mariner and a bunch of other goodies for a real good price. If anyone is in need of an older boat and trailer I will have one for cheap(almost free) when I am done.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
