2001 40 hp 4 stroke

Might buy this evinrude, it is a 3 cylinder only 50 hrs. on it or so. Anyone have any thoughts if it is a good motor for a pontoon? What is it worth? Thanks.

I just bought a used 2001 40hp 4 stroke w/ trim and tilt for $2100.00. It is in decent shape... couple scuffs on the cowling and hood, but no biggie.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the reply, this one is in like new condition and the seller wants a little more than the book on it. Anyone else familiar with the motor? Are the 3 cylinders reliable, I had a 1991 that was tough to start.

I have a three cylnder 90 horse 2 stroke and she starts up just fine. Make shure you start the motor and see how it runs for yourself.

That motor is a Suzuki with Evinrude paint. Supposed to be good.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
