1978 Boston Whaler Montauk 17'
1978 Evinrude 75hp
1978 Highlander Trailer

Boat is in great condition with very few spider cracks, no bottom paint, or damage. A few scratches consistent with its age. Mostly used in freshwater, but has been used in salt. A few barnacles are on the bottom.

Motor hasn't been run in over two years. It has spark, compression, and fuel however will not fire. I have spent about 1/2 hour on it. Should run without much fuss or this is an awesome hull to repower.

Trailer is in good shape. If I don't sell it, I will fix the motor, just thought I would first try to sell it as is.

Is your asking price $5000 as you say here or $5500 as listed in your Craigslist ad? And is the package a 1978 or 1980? This boat was for sale in Hebron, CT a few weeks ago for $4000 so you must have purchased it. I'm curious what you have done to the boat to justify the additional $1500 in asking price? Thanks for your time.

It is his business what he wants to list the boat for. If he bought it for $4k and wants to try to make money on it, is that a crime? He risked his capital. Or is trying to make money illegal nowadays?

If you want to buy the boat, then make him an offer.

Boat is now fixed and per my mechanic running very well.

I spoke briefly with the mechanic this morning while I was driving into work. Here is what I remember what as to what he fixed. (I will have the exact list once I pick the boat up)
1. Removed and replaced all fuel lines (to carbs/tanks etc...)
2. Removed, cleaned, rebuilt carbs.
3. Replaced all carb seals and other seals required with carb removal.
4. Replaced thermostat.
5. Fixed steering. (Not sure if it is new or just fixed, guess just fixed)
6. Test ran and gave engine a thumbs up. Checked engine for other problems, no other repairs recommended.

The boat is now priced at $6k if anyone is interested.
