    Default Whats a 90 Salt Water Merc worth?

    My buddy is going to up grade to a 115 4 stroke. We were trying to figure out what a 10yr old low hours 2 stroke 90hp Salt Water Merc would be worth in the Anchorage area. Its in great shape and runs like a top he just need a few more ponies. Guys i need some help here so any thoughts would be much appreciated!

    I don't know. But, five years back I bought a very good running Evinrude 115 for 1500 bucks to put on the back of my little ski boat. It included working controls and a good prop. I don't know if this hels much....but it is my experience. Good luck selling your motor.

    I would not be surprised if you didn't sell it for at least 1300 bucks. I think it is all about the right buyer thou. With that said if your in a hurry to sell i wouldn't expect it to go on the high side very quickly. Hard to put a value on one without hours used and so forth.

    Default out board and salt

    If I were in the market for an out board motor there are several criteria I would hope to include.
    the control box and harness. those are not interchangable nor genaric.
    the results of a leak down test ,(not a compression test)
    and the results of the gear case integrety vacuum /pressure test
    also a KV test on the ignition system.
    It would be important to me too if it had been thuroughly winterized.
    and lastly , if the zink anodes are doing their job.
    If the motor can be run for the perspective buyer that would be a plus as well.
    A boat mechanic knows these tests, and what they are worth. That being said , the professional documentation of these issues make the motor more valuable. even if all the numbers are not to the teeth there is a heads up that can support a fairness to the price.
    More so than the guy with a motor that is just sitting in a garage and a lot of say so.
    I hope this helps you.
