Anyone have any feedback on this boat, it has an 1991 Evinrude 175, it was used in saltwater, I live in the northeast and will be using it in freshwater. I am going to pay 14k for it but wanted some input on the boat itself. I will be using it to take clients out on the big lake. The boat looks to be in great shape. What should I look out for? Thanks...soon to be a new whaler owner.

Tgar- Hello. The 22' OR is a fine boat. I have a 22'OR '86 w/o cuddy. It is a good size boat which is perfect for you to use for client entertainment. The cuddy should come in handy since it affords protection plus your female clients will appreciate the privacy for whatever. It is rated up to 11 folks. We use ours to cruise, ski as well as fish. For example, last weekend just the wife and I cruised for a couple hours yet Wednesday four guy friends will fish the ICW or a few miles out in the big pond depending on wind. You may want to pick up 2-3 double posted chairs for client comfort.
The 175 hp engines concerns me abit. 200 or 225 is perfect for a 22OR w/o cuddy. The cuddy adds several hundred pounds of weight so it may be just abit sluggish. Maybe not.
If the boat is real clean, the 14K is fair money. Make certain the engine checks out.
Good luck David
