I've got a Johnson 8 hp short shaft motor for sale, including a mounting plate for mounting as a kicker. I bought this from a guy on FM earlier this year, but I ended up finding a Yamaha longshaft shortly after I bought this one to use as a kicker. The motor runs great - I have hardly used it, and the guy before me said he had only used it a few seasons - it had been in storage before then. This is an 86 - I had thought it was early 90's but was corrected.

I'll sell the motor and gas tank for $425 and the mounting plate for an additional $25.

I have numerous pictures I can send.

Would this work on a lund 1700 pro sport(shaft long enough)?Also what color is it?

I'm 99% positive your boat is set up for a long shaft....But, you could use the mounting plate, which can compensate for the short shaft length. Otherwise, you could use it as the short shaft, but would sacrifice a little boat control. I know people that are using them both ways.

I would be very interested. It's just what I have been looking for. How can I get ahold of you? I would appreciated pictures.

Birdswacker - I forgot to note that the motor is white (with Johnson's black decals).

Also - since I hadn't used the motor for a while,I took it out tonight on my 16' Lund Renegade and did some trolling. Some things I noted - the handling was the same or better than with my Yamaha Long Shaft (I did not expect this at all, and can't explain it) - the long shaft SHOULD handle better given the transom depth. My top speed with the Johnson was 4 mph - my top speed with the Yamaha is 5 mph - only 1 mph difference for a motor almost twice as big. However, I'm sure the long shaft would be better in rough water, as the prop would stay down. If you mounted the mounting plate on your boat, this would be fixed though.

Based on my comparison tonight - I'm actually thinking about keeping the Johnson and selling the Yamaha.............

      Nice job Bob! Fishing off the neighbors dock sucked for us. My gang is coming up Thursday night till Monday, this will be our opener, we'll hit it hard. It's a bummer my dock is mostly under water and the lift isn't in. Thanks to the neighbor around the corner for letting us park on shore at there place next weekend.

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.
