I'm considering a purchase of 80's Montauk. One consideration is the weight of the 80HP 4-stroke '00 Yamaha. It wouldn't be the ideal motor but the boat is in great shape and the $9k price seems reasonable. Thanks in advance for your input.

I have the 88spl 2 cycle with a duel battery setup in the rear ,, both batteries weigh together about 70lb and when I'm back there at 180 i still have plenty of transom out of the water,,

mrmatt, don't worry about the weight. I have a 100hp 4S and 4hp 4S kicker and stern seat on my Montauk. I fish up to ten miles off in saltwater.

Enjoy, plus a new 90hp 4S Yamaha alone is about $9K.

mrmatt, here's proof that a 80hp isn't too much weight. See the white caps in the background. We were five miles off and were just getting to run in - more comfortable in the stern. set-72157602663761689/ .

I have a 1982 Montauk with a Yamaha 75HP four stroke on it. It does not weigh the stern down at all.
