    Default cheap outboard motors in/near juneau

    I plan on getting something relatively cheap to use for the summer for fishing. I am thinking about a small raft or skiff with a 2.5-15hp motor to just use on nice days near the auke bay area. Can anyone point me in the right direction to buy something like that or am I better off hitting up ebay? All info or advice is appreciated.

    About all I can suggest is watch the classifieds in the Juneau Empire and Capital City Weekly. Willie's might be worth a look, also Rocky's in Petersburg.

    Check www.craigslist.com the paper is a dead advertising media unless you are looking for a house or a brand new car!

    Default also check

    I have found a few for sale on craigslist; but the folks selling them are awful proud of them. Asking about half the price of a brand new one, for one that is 20+ yrs old!

    I would like to get one as well for my cataraft. If you come across a 4hp that you aren't interested in, let me know.

    There are actually a few skiffs listed in the Juneau Empire today.

    Call my brother Mike at http://www.alaskaboatbrokers.com and tell him what you are looking for. He will set you up with what you need.
