    As the title states im looking around for a boat motor to go on my 12 jon boat. I went to the lake a couple days ago and was dissapointed with the pace my boat could travel with a trolling motor alone. I would like to take the heat off my battery and invest in a boat motor. Im only looking to spend about $200 on one so if anyone has one RUNNING that they would like to sell please post here. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know but I think it's going to be pretty difficult to get a decent 5-8HP for $200 bucks. At least around here they run around $600-$1000 used.

    >_> fock. I guess my price is way to low im guessing. Im really need a 5HP to be honest. Its not a big boat at all. Should i be raising my price ceiling?

    wat?
    go get you a beefy trolling motor. i've got a 55lb thrust on my 17' aluminum bass boat and it'll pull that boat hard into the wind and current. i also think it was 200-250. find out what you have now and go up from there. also have to think about the places you can take a trolling motored small boat over one w/ an outboard.

    I think mine is close to that, I'll check tomorrow(dark outside)

    I would just like to go across the lake quickly to get to those spots that larger boats cant get too. :eek:

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Yeah, 5HP runs about $1500 new, and $1000 used (if working). I only know because I recently weighed the options of repairing mine or buying a new one. I went with repairs.

    you can find running ones for 6-700 on craigslist, but there kind of rare, i ended up finding a guy who had a 1965 evinrude 18hp that wasnt running put in a few hours and $50 in parts and now it works like a champ but thats pretty much the only way to get a working motor for 200 +/- a little

    I think i'll try that approach. For that price i'd be better off selling my boat and buying one with a motor already on it.
