    This build is coming to a close, so she is going up for sale to the next lucky owner. This is a great skiff and has tons of upgrades. I am selling the boat, motor, and trailer. But I will remove the motor if the buyer desires.

    This skiff has been BABIED. Hand waxed twice a month. Super clean! Motor is immaculate too!

    Motor weighs about 119 lbs with electric start. In very good condition they are worth 1900-2000. In worse condition maybe 1400-1500.

    I can buy them all day long for $1000 or under! Paid $700 for mine with a Jon boat and trailer, fresh water motor that just needed a carb job, gear oil, and water pump. Sold the Jon boat for $150/w trailer

    I'm not sure about the Merc 25 2 stroke but Merc still makes the 9.9 and 15 for the Canadian fishing lodge market.  The lodges up north lease them for a season then turn them back into Merc where they are re-furbed  and re-sold.  I guide freshwater trout on the White River in North AR. and know a couple of guides that have purchased them for about half of new price.  Those big Canadian lodges get them by the hundreds.  Will do some research and try to get better info.

    EDIT: Here's one example and there are more. This outfit is in Largo, FL

    The lodge mercs you are referencing are all 4 strokes. Good deals but way heavier than the 25 2 stroke.
    The 25/30 sea pro 2 stroke is new but no longer able to be sold and shipped into the US

    Wrong!!! You can get either and 2 strokes are not illegal in the US. Just checked with one of my guide friends and his 15hp Merc 2 stroke is a 2009. I have a pair of 2005 models, one elec start and one not. Cannot tell the dif from his 2009 model. I paid $2200 each for mine new, he paid $1300 for his and came in Merc packing box, 6 gal tank and hose with one year warranty. He is looking for the paperwork to see where he ordered it from.
