I am listing this for my Father, they bought a pontoon boat with this motor and they are at an electric motor only lake. The motor is in great condition and Dad wants to sell it, he has already taken it off the pontoon. I called Mercury with the serial number and they told me it was exactly as stated above EL is electric start. The price is $1100 OBO and the motor is located in the Dalton, Ohio area which is near Massillon, Barberton, Wooster etc. I do not have pics and it's too far for me to drive to get them. Send me a PM and I will forward contact info.
