Even if not for sale maybe post a pic up of it.Nope. Local market is bone dry and I'm pretty committed to an image of a boat I haven't seen for sale yet, but it sits along one of my backroad routes. I'm going to stop and see if it's for sale this weekend. Nothing I've seen other than his and maybe one other that sold before I called the guy, have struck a nerve. Being picky and patient.
The bonnets on 9.9 and 15 motors of the same manufacturer are usually interchangeable. On ones I’ve owned anyway. Replacement decals stating the HP are easily obtained as well. Or so I’ve heardI'd definitely be interested if it weren't for the 9.9 restrictions on our home lake and at AEP, which will be where I use it the majority of the time.
Wanted to thank the guys that shared options with me here and via PM. I'm gonna call off the search as I'm not willing to pay a premium for a want. My dad also just acquired a little aluminum boat with a trailer that's a perfect project boat, so I'll tear into that if I find enough gumption.
