The guy had issues getting the paperwork together. He told me he'd have it in a couple weeks MAX. Then, I get a message that he's in need of $$ and wants to sell me his 90 h.p. Yamaha (1988 year) with the boat, but no good title on the motor either. In South Carolina, no title = NO SALE! I learned that a LONG time ago. The HARD way.

So, I ended up not getting the boat. Oh, well. Thanks for the great advice, anyway, everyone! If I come across another one, I may buy it if the deal is right for me.

Good thing you walked. No title on either the motor or boat? Something shady going on there, IMO...

Could be. One just can't be too careful these days!

How lucky am I that when i was about to search for a I/O to outboard link, this thread was at the top!

I am considering buying a '96 15' BW Rage from that has already had the stern sealed and prepped for installation of the bracket. The guy is asking for $2k for the boat, trailer, stainless steel engine bracket (not mounted),

I am really hesitant to go this route. We (family) just got a house on the water and need a boat to fill the empty slip. Was looking for a smaller runabout to hold me over for a year till I can buy my dream fishing boat.

I would appreciate any thoughts on this one...

Here is a pic of mine when it was done.

it was a manual jack plate. I think 10” setback if memory serves. Been a while.
