      k, so here's one of those sad moments. I'm moving out east and have too many toys to bring with me.
      This one hurts.

      1985 Sidewinder SS16
      1989 Johnson 150 VRO (vro working but deleted for break-in period)
      I bought this 3 years ago. I have completely rebuilt the 150 Johnson in our shop. Bored over .030
      new pistons, water pump, starter, etc.
      21 pitch SS prop
      comes with a trailer.

      I have bought a new fuel tank but have not installed it.

      It starts and runs smooth and snappy. I have only had 2 (10 gal) tanks through the rebuild. Just never got up north last summer to use it. It's in Mississauga right now.
      It's still being broken in and it still needs the carb adjusted and some tlc. I have done the major stuff and was going to do the cosmetics last. It does run now.
      Someone just needs to finish off the small stuff.
      You could have it all ironed out and in the water for a great summer... at my expense.

      PS the pistons, bearings, starter, carb kit, water pump etc ran over $3,000
      Really just needs re-jetting to take advantage of the bore.

      Here's to stupid fun.

      Asking $4500 boat, motor and trailer.
