  1. Price reduced to $6,000. The motor is on water and can demonstrate it runs. I welcome a compression test while it is warm for more accuracy.
  2. Let me know when and I’ll see what I can do. Located in Mexico ny.
  3. Thank you sir. Boat is located in Mexico ny. You can text me 315 506 8185 and we can work out a potential time.
  4. Well guys. My heart breaks doing this. I just don’t think I love the sport anymore. I was involved in an accident last July (you can read my post about it) and happened onto this boat for a steal and thought I’d warm up to the idea of going out again. I did go out on my dads boat and I wasn’t feeling it. I’ll try to include everything: im the third owner and I haven’t talent the boat off my property since august. Boat is a 1988 21’ overniter outboard with a 175 Johnson original boat/motor combo. Trailer is a dual axle 2005 with less than 1000 miles on it. Paperwork for both boat and trailer. It is in great shape. I do not have a survey for it. Cleaned it up a bit but I should wash it down to make it sparkle just ran out of time tonight. since I bought it, I added a garmin striker 4, four rod holder platforms, the tracks to go on them (see pictures), two triple trees, and I have a fish hawk to go with it. The fish hawk does not read boat speed tho. Boat has a 63 gallon underfloor gas tank. Motor is oil injected so no mixing needed. Last ran in august for a sea trial in Oneida. Ran great, got the boat to around 32 mph but idk if that was wide open. Water separator installed and used. Stored indoors all its life for winter, up on a hoist on Oneida for the summers. Has a power trim tilt for the kicker. take a look at the pics, ask questions and I’ll do my best to answer. The trailer brakes need to be wired in, and the Bimini needs one plastic bracket on the drivers side. looking to get $6,000 I’m in no rush to sell, maybe I’ll fall back in love with the sport. I truly believe it will be a fantastic boat for one of you. Thanks guys. I have some fishing gear we can deal too if interested.
  5. I’m not sure what you looked up, though I appreciate the intent. Per the sticker and 1988 original manual, it weighs 4400lb without fuel and has a max hp of 200. thank you for your input. I will likely keep the 175 on the Grady.
  6. Thanks guys, the merc was $13,000 with everything (controls, merc monitor, professional install, etc) so if it is indeed back to 100%, I’d think it is more worthwhile than the 175 apart from speed. It has 300 hours on it, which 98% of that is trolling. the 175 is in great shape. Took it for a drive when I bought it and it didn’t miss a beat. I’m just not a fan of two strokes’ noise, fuel consumption, and reliability.
  7. Yes I’m aware. For me, I wouldn’t care about power. I wanted reliability and the ability to troll with my main.
  8. As some of you know, last summer my boat went down... was a whole thing as you can imagine. Long story short, I ended up buying a 1988 Grady white 21’ overniter on a steal of a deal, in pristine condition. I had a 90hp 2017 Mercury four stroke in my previous boat. I just had it checked out by the mechanic and he went through it and brought it back to normal form. I’d like to put it on my Grady. here’s my problem. I’m not sure I’m going to keep the boat. In fact, I’m leaning on selling it. The question is, is the 175hp original 2 stroke that’s currently on the Grady from factory more attractive to a potential buyer than my 90 that’s been through an accident. Let’s assume the compression test checks out. let me know what kind of questions I can answer to get some better informed input. Breaks my heart but I may have fallen out of love with the sport for obvious reasons.
  9. Yes it is a four stroke. No smoke and no mixing oil and gas.
  10. The guys that picked my sorry a$$ up we’re about as chill as could be. Once they learned I am military they got even more laid back. Their boat is insanity, twin diesels and build like a literal tank. My knee learned that real quick haha still got the scar!
  11. That coast guard boat brings back bad memories. glad everyone was ok
  12. A good rule of thumb is 1# per 10’ down. I rarely go lower than 90’ so 10# suffices for one rigger and the other is typically parked at 65’, 8# ball. I prefer using two different weights to offset blowback according to the depths. FWIW, I use 4# balls for browns, since it’s only down 10’ to 20’. I also have had my 10# down to 130, like was said above, I can see the ball on my graph.
  13. I can get you a pic of the stamp tomorrow. Long shaft, does not have charging.
  14. The merc needed a new carb. Installed and runs great. Cold start is 4 pulls, as noted in the below video. Warm start is 1 pull. New price $1500 as it runs exactly how it should. In no rush to sell because I could very well just keep it as my backup. I have the old carb as well and the receipt for the work done by Ralph at salmon country. 315 506 8185 text ben IMG_0172.MOV
