Default 225HP Outboard for $1900???

I ran across this while searching for a 5HP motor. Here's the link:

Could be a steal, Could also be a nice $1900.00 mooring block
Not enough info in the listing. More often than not ,you get what you pay for. But who knows?;? You'd have to go listen to her run.

I'm not in the market, but somebody might be that's on this forum. The phone number originated in the Birmingham area, but if it's a cell phone, that doesn't mean anything.

You're right that it's strange that a motor gets sold without the boat going with it.

Its an old carbed motor. Not much market for them anymore. I would sell my 275s for $1500.

along these same lines ... about 3 years ago i saw a Merc 25hp show up on CL for $550. they sent me a pic and it was the latest 2-stroke model. It had been used. this was on a Friday afternoon - Sat am I was at the location (150 miles away). they hooked it up, started it and we let it run for 15-20 minutes on a hose. i drove away with it and haven;t looked back since - it runs SUPER.

stuff is out ther like that - you just have to be willing to walk away if it doesn;t really look right.

IF anybody has called about the motor, please post your findings if you aren't going to buy it...it might save others from having to call.

Also, if it's a POS or the seller is sketchy, PM me and I'll delete this post entirely.
