  1. Mount on a board going across the boat.
  2. 1982 Evinrude 15hp short shaft pull start $600.00 or best offer. Starts, runs, shifts, pumps water. Average cosmetic condition. $600.00 or best offer. Comes with tank and hose. Stand does not come with it. Location Dunkirk, NY
  3. Dealer service has been an issue for the boating industry going back to the 1970s at least. This same story, dealers don't stay with the line, companies go in and out of business, companies get bought up by other companies. Perhaps the latest example is Evinrude leaving the market this year, and what happens down the road a couple years? I have two E-TECs myself so it is a concern that gets more of a concern for me every year. Older long time dealers continue to age out or just go out of business at least in my part of the world. Or on older equipment they just tell you they don't want to tackle it(I am talking a twenty year old outboard). With how expensive new product has become, you would think things would be better but they never have been. Like everything else there are exceptions to that and you should frequent those dealers and businesses.
  4. Had a 17 Starcraft several years ago(late 90's boat)-aluminum came with the 55 as part of the factory package. Was more than adequate to handle things. But like everything else, no one ever complains about too much power, so take it from there.
  5. Those old V4 Evinrudes can run forever. I had a 19 Sea Nymph so I know the boat. If it isn't broken, save yourself some money and don't do anything now.

    Is the boat kept in the water or on the trailer? Reason for the question is that in the 1980's especially a lot of boats kept in the water with no bottom paint developed gelcoat blisters. Correction to that at the time was repair/fill/sand the areas that were really bad and barrier coat/paint the bottom of the boat.
  7. Have owned several aluminums including a 22ft. I have a glass 20 ft now. There is no comparison to the ride of glass because of weight. Aluminum has gotten better as they have improved over time. But everyone has their own preferences. Towing kicks gas mileage down, often into the 12 mpg range or less. Not going to get around that one. And sure weight is also a factor in this but the vehicle is working harder to cover the same ground.
  8. It is early 80's-guessing 82-85. Should be a tag on the upper starboard transom or engraved on it. Your registration or title will show the year. Crestliner changed cabin design in 86 or 87, different style than this.
  9. Yamaha exited the stern drive business some years ago I believe after unsuccessfully trying to enter the market , so therefore my advice would be to scoop up as many parts as possible. Much like BMW entering in the 1980's.
