1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I have a 78 Johnson, 85 Hp Javlin.


    The starter's ruined. You need a new one.
    The engine has not been started since 05. I've owned the boat etc since 01.
    It started quick and ran fine. I had just replaced the Fuel lines and got called away. I never got back to it.
    It's a mechanical shift, not electric. It has a Stainless prop too.

    For a guy building a wood boat that can use this big motor and a good single axle trailer this is a great buy.

    He can dump the Fiberglass Bass boat into his pond for the kids to play with, and use the 85 outboard on the wood boat and the trailer for the wood boat.
    You get the hardware, cables and the Throttle lever assembly and a gas tank.
    This trailer has good tires, bearing buddy's and is ready to go. I have the paper work (somewhere)
    I'll get you more photos if you want.
    The lights all work, it has a standard Four terminal connector.
    The loading guides are Bolt-on's and can be moved. The load rating is over 2000 Lbs on the trailer tires.
    Three good tires, a good tongue jack. Dilly is a good trailer.
    $800 is all I'm asking.
