Up for sale is my mechanics 15' (5A0470), 2008 40hp ETec (approximately 4 hours), and trailer. The trailer has been rebuilt and is very road worthy. He has all the proper paperwork for boat/trailer and warranties on motor. I took it out this weekend to try it because I didn't believe him concerning the performance. Boy, was I surprised. I personally think this 40 hp is really a 60 hp with different decals. I loaded it up with the family and dogs. The motor is very quiet and did not hesitate to jump up on plane. I had a friend out in his 17' Whaler with 70hp suzuki so we raced. I dropped the family off on the island and went playing. I let him start first and I jumped on it. I was able to hang with him and then started to slowly pull away. I had a full tank of gas (6gallon), battery, anchor, and me (195lbs). Typically he would run in the high 30's (GPS). I didn't have a gps on board but I was very surprised with the performance. I know this isn't anywhere near as extensive as Jim and others write up, but it gives a little insite on the performance. The hull is solid but has been "re-gel coated" on the interior. Outer hull is original. The wood has been sanded and varnished. Any wood that was rotten was remade (by me). He is asking $7500 but may be negotiated. You can call him (Scott)direct 910-784-9222 or email me or call me (Marty) 910-612-6900. Pictures can be seen at
I travel a lot in NC/SC/and Virginia and can help with delivery if you can work around my schedule.
This is not a show room boat. It is a very solid boat with a great engine!
