That is fairly steep pricewise. They do show up quite a bit on Atlanta Craigslist, so I there is not a "shortage" of them here. However, they aren't as abundant as the Northern States, and Southern Canada. I have passed a couple good buys up this year on them due to funding the build for my boat, but they do show up. In fact, all 4 of mine came from Craigslist. Never know what section they will be in. I found the '55 listed in a long list of old power tools ('40s and '50s era Delta shop equipment - table saws etc) that dad was interested in. When I went to get it, he also showed me the '36, so I picked that up too. The best deals will come from the most unlikely places. I have found that people trying to sell them tend to think they are worth a heck of a lot more than they are (outboard collectors are known for being real cheap, myself included), so a good priced motor often comes from somebody just trying to clean out a barn, rather than make enough cash to buy something else.BassNBob wrote:I saw this one on craigslist this morning, you might be interested. 51 Johnson that runs. https://knoxville.craigslist.org/boa/1013128358.html
You've got that right. Between motors, fishing, aluminum boats both old and new...... So many dreams... So little cash...russ010 wrote:with these craigslists posts, it's like putting bassboy in a candy store!
