I am sorta shoping for a larger boat motor, so I can take my boat onto lake erie. I have the opportunity to buy a 1997 longshaft Evenrude 40 hp tiller motor for $1200. It was only used for duck season a few times and has only around 35 hours of use on it. the guy bought it new in 97 and got a new boat in 2000. so he did not need the motor any more. It has been sitting in his garadge for the past 7-8 years. Does this sound good? Also if I go to check outhe motor what should I look for in it?
