I have a chance to purchase a used '96 Merc, 20hp, for my '63 13 foot. Asking price is $1,500. The motor is spotless, 1 tank of gas run through it. Has been stored in a basement for the past 4 years. Sound like a good deal?

I just started looking at new and used motors for my 13 and I think it sounds like an OK deal. How much could you get a new one for including warranty? It might not be worth saving a couple of hundred dollars. I also wonder about putting a 20hp on a 13, you're only 11hp away from the min. to get up on plane. For $1500.00 you could probably get a decent used 25 or 30.

Just a few thoughts
