Hey feller fishermen and fisherwomen, I am just throwing this out here and see what happens, I have a 1958 Johnson Sea Horse 5.5hp ss ob, model cd-15. It is pull start, starts every time, runs like a top (never really seen a top run though) it has pushed my 14ft boat perfectly, it has forward and reverse gear on it. What I am looking to do is upgrade to a 9.9 or less but more than what I have now. I dont know if these are collecor type motors, and somebody is willing to trade, or somebody can let me know if these older models are collectible. I do have the manual for it, price $400??? If somebody is willing to trade, I am willing to travel, I just want something more worthy of Lake Erie. Thanks BigCat, fish on :B !!!!!
