Found this Montauk on Craiglist, a new Honda 90 is 9k installed over here. Seems to be priced right if it could be bought for a little less. Is it too heavy to have the 4 stroke 90 along with the kicker on the back of this montauk

When clicking post reply there is just below the submit reply button a UBB Code hyperlink - If you click it you will get specific instructions. Follow the first one - URL hyperlinking.
Bascially you put [url] directly in front of the link and [/url ] (no space between the end of this url and the "]" - I had to show this way not to make a link) directly behind the link
Here is your fixed link

That is too much weight on the transom of a Montauk.
The Honda 90 alone might be OK but with that kicker, it is way too much weight.

That boat is priced more than right. If you want to save money, just sell the kicker after you purchase.

When we bought our mid-80's Montauk, we were down to two boats, one with a 1985 v4 90 Johnson (which we bought) and one with a newer Honda 4S 90. The boat with the Honda was VERY stern heavy. With that kicker, the larger tank and the separate tank for the kicker, there is going to be a problem.
Like Dan said, you could sell the kicker (and its tank), but it will still be stern heavy. It is on a steel trailer and is not in San Diego, but Yuma AZ (likely limited salt water use).

Weight is fine after you nix the kix. Plus that engine will fetch about $1500.

Talked to the guy, motors are 2001s, hull is an 84. I mentioned that the hull looked discolored and he said it was just dirty from floating in the lake for a summer and he never cleaned it. Don't know if that would cause blisters. It has been sitting for 3 years with no use but he said the motors started right up. anybody have any comments on these Hondas with carbs- Thanks

No offense but the boats you have posted usually look like a deal, especially this one. If you wait...you lose. I know demographics are not within your realm so either spend a week o so in CA and look or stick with boats in HI. Asking here is just gonna make you miss a deal.

Just trying to get informed before I buy.
