  1. Set of big jon electric riggers , come with dual adjustable rod holders and aluminum swivel mounts , work perfectly fine . Have regular 12v cig lighter plug on them with replaceable fuse . Both spooled with plenty of stainless that is in good shape , counters work , new springs for counters just installed . Only one back up manual handle is included , the one rigger has a small crack on the mount for the manual handle (shown) however it does still serve its purpose .  I have used these routinely with my 15lb shark weights with zero issues .   $500 for both riggers , rod holders and swivel mounts . 


    Also have a random selection of weights , trying to clean out some of my clutter 

    10lb fish weights 

    the ones next are all 6lb , some homemade , one cannon , one other factory one I’m not sure what it is 

    also a homemade 3lb 


    make an offer on one or all of the weights 


    I will ship everything but you are paying the ride . I am an hour north of Watertown but Can meet in Watertown NY . You can call or text me 315-59O-24onethree
















  2. Just because they look clean doesn’t mean much ... order the kit and tear em down .. be sure to remove the Welch plugs to get at every orifice... the kit will include new ones ..  also at that vintage plugs wires etc .. electrical items break down under load and sometimes your chasin fuel issues for no reason...

  3. To answer original question ... I have a couple “sears” manual riggers in my garage attic . All they are is manual big jons,, solid machined aluminum , except these have fiberglass booms .. I’ve actually stole parts off them for my big job captains pak electric riggers (end pulley , one of the backup handles) ... so I wouldn’t run from them if the price is cheap enough . They may be a little crude but they haven’t changed design much at all . 

  4. Nice job , but yeah I typically fix these with threaded inserts , just like spark plug holes ,,, or any drain or fill hole ..  it’s basically a thin hardened tube with threads on outside and inside .: inside threads are same as oem.. outer threads you drill and tap for .. comes with a tool you thread them in with,, cover it with some red loctite on outer threads ..  also comes with a tool you insert after it’s threaded in and hit with a hammer that flanges the edges and peens it in place ... they are a life saver ..  gotta appreciate the job you did though , definitely got it done and won’t have to do it again . 


    Also when doing this I dip the tap in sticky axle grease so the filings Stick to it 


    if you google timesert that’s what I use

  5. Then perhaps don’t call me at 10pm because I embarrassed you on here if you don’t want to bicker . You saw it earlier , wait till 10? Why? Been brewing all night or what? You are that dude that is every honost dealers nightmare . You are the reason we can’t Just look someone in the eyes and shake hands and know they are telling the truth . .. the reason we have to ask a million questions , research , test and finger bang everything before buying .. because word of mouth has been ruined .


    the boat price who knows I’m not saying it’s not a good deal or decent or bad , I don’t care. Its not someone I have any interest in , It’s worth whatever someone is willing to pay . Just advertise it correctly and disclose everything you know . It’s funny how many negative facts people “forget” ,, but they’ll never forget the good stuff like new parts . 


    If you look at your post history you’ll see your first post .. the day you created your account on here was you approaching me trying to sell me a motor . Which led to phone conversation . Which led nowhere . Big deal . No sweat, ...  then I saw your post on here ( post #2 after new account ) which contradicts everything you said to me .  Stay with me TEACH ... 


    this isnt craigslist ? This is the type of place you do a deal and can still look them in the eye a month later when you see them at the dock .


    so angry ? No? Upset i didn’t buy your motor that YOU approached ME about ?? No ... 


    just calling it what it is ,, feel that’s the least I could do for the folks on here . 

  6. Not angry, but now I am certainly annoyed because I received a 10pm phone call from you asking why I blew you in on here and if I was still interested in the motor . Sorry when I’m sitting relaxing in bed with the wife I don’t want to bicker or measure manhood . For being some sort of teacher your lacking common sense . You saw the post when I posted it . But thanks for calling at 10pm. Call me during business hours when I’m not half asleep and I’ll explain my annoyance with flipping stories .

  7. Being a mechanic and tower fan I was interested in the motor . Deal didn’t happen no big deal . That’s whatever . But to have a phone conversation with the dude and have him explain everything to me , and our last contact was me asking for photos of under the cowling .. then I see this posted on here .. now cmon .. which story is it .. I really enjoy the classifieds on here and have purchased 2

    boats and tons of gear off folks on here and made friends. To see someone just sign up to be shady on here is irritating .

  8. Hey thanks for those pics and wasting my time. Appreciate it bud . Good luck with your sale .  You said the boat was shot and leaked around the transom .As well as the motor was leaking water out of the gaskets .  In your words you’d make more selling the motor and trailer seperate as the boat was spent .  Glad to see you signed up here on the forums just to post this . But I think the seedy type belong over on Craigslist. 

  9. Thanks guys , it all depends on price point . This is a play project so not looking to get super invested . 


    Emergency - I’ll pass on the complete boat . My wife would probably start setting boats on fire if I brought another home .


    cinnamon - that’s the idea I’m after , again it all depends what your looking to get out of it .


    chas - price ? 


  10. figured someone might have one tucked in the back of a barn or on the back of a soggy boat .. I’ve got a little mess around project and I’m looking for a 70-150hp outboard . I’d really like to get my hands on a classic Mercury “tower of power”  but I’m open to anything in that power range ..  needs to have power tilt . Doesn’t need to be turn key. Doesn’t need to run , just needs to not be smoked .  As long as I can jump the starter and check compression I don’t care as long as it’s complete .  Not looking to spend an arm and a leg , this is just a fun little project with my kids , a cool old classic boat. 

  11. Updated pics , updated price $2800 bucks as it sits . It’s out of storage and hosed down ,  started, quarter tank of fresh fuel . Could use a good scrubbing but Ready to be outfitted and used! . 








  12. Two penn crank riggers , very nice shape . Long booms. One needs a new cable end as shown . Comes with the quick release bases, 180 degree swivel bases , and T-mounts. So virtually any mounting situation is covered . Includes all hardware and rod holders as shown.  Also have original manuals for them . Drags and all work great .  300 for everything . I really don’t want To ship but will take them apart and ship at your cost . I am located in Gouverneur ny . I travel often to Watertown .
