OMC Boats For Sale (2002)

The following boats have been reported as for sale. Nothing more has been confirmed. Dated information has been left in place for reference.

1966 Evinrude Sportsman 150HP 11/27/2002 (SOLD)

Due to a shift in my life of going back to school and the resulting lack of finances and space I am selling my boat.

It is a 1966 Evinrude Sportsman 150. Here are the details. Last winter I rebuilt the motor. It is a 1982 3.8 liter V6 made by Buick. It is bored out 40 thousandths. I had the crank ground down 20 thousandths. I put new main, rod and cam bearing in. I have all receipts. Earlier in this summer, I had problems with some power output while under a load. I disassembled and reassembled a lot of the lower unit looking for the problem. Fortunately, no problems were found. Instead, doing things bassackwards, I opened the carburetor and found an iron ore mine in the float bowl! I rebuilt the carburetor and have gotten rid of the lack of power problem. There is a aluminum prop. There is a brand new battery. There is a new (engineered) electric shift switch box. The remaining problem is the tilt mechanism. The tilt works but not all the way up. It is as if it runs out of juice. Perhaps a new electric motor would fix that. Since the wiring is old, many of the connectors had poor contact. The wiring on the entire boat has been gone through and is fixed. There is a new 500 GPH bilge pump. On the heavy trailer, there is new wiring, lights and jack. The trailer has the old style two-piece rims and a different bore axle spindle. New tires and/or wheels are needed. The old tires do hold air they are just not something I would want to take a long way down the road. I can always answer questions or take more pictures if you like. Just ask. I would like to be able to sell this to someone who can use the parts or work on the fiberglass to take out the aged cracks. Asking: $800. [sold for $500 5/2004 on eBay]

1962 17' OMC Canada Deluxe 9/5/2002

This early Canadian model (serial # C100003) is in very good original condition. It was purchased in Pembroke, Ontario on July 5th. 1962 then transferred to its 2nd. owner in Sept.1968. It has seen very little usage since that time as well as always being stored inside. I purchased it May 1993 and it has since been kept in storage. Last in the water in July 1999 running well, since then winterized & stored. As I'm about to have more time on my hands I've decided to replace it with something much more utilitarian. Here are the particulars:

The only flaws that I'm aware of are one small hole in the original convertable top- about 1 1/2"x 2 1/2" & webbing under centre rear seat is broken. As this might possibly be the earliest & best of its model in existence I'm hoping to get $7500.(USD) but am open to offers. It is located in the Upper Ottawa Valley in Eastern Ontario. I can be reached at sones(at) or (613) 586-2238 for further info & pictures.

1970 Johnson Surfer 210hp 8/22/2002

I haven't used my 1970 Johnson Surfer in over three years because I have other boats and never got around to using it. It has been inside all this time and last Fall I checked it out to make sure all was good. I syphoned the gas out and filled it again and ran it. This boat is a two owner boat and is in real nice condition. It has the original seats that do show wear but are very usable.The engine and outdrive are in excellent condition. I have never detected any leaks in the lower unit. I do need to replace the down solenoid on the tilt. They are readily available at any auto parts store. I have owned the boat for 10 years now. It has the original top. It comes with a shorelander trailer, not the original trailer because for the first 22 years it had been boathouse kept and they never had a trailer. I have set the price realistically at $2800.00 dollars in U.S. funds. Parted out it is worth the asking price. If interested we could arrange to put it in the lake and spend the afternoon together for one last cruise. You won't be disappointed. I live in Northern Minnesota. Thank You.

1966 Johnson Surfer 5/15/2002 (SOLD)

ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUALS: BOAT, ENGINE, OUTDRIVE, TRLR, 4 hp JOHNSON O/B MOTOR w/ FUEL TANK (less than 25 hrs!) and O/B MOTOR MOUNT FOR KICKER, SPARE ANTENNA WHIP, 2 SPARE PROPS w/ extra shear pins, prop hub, SPECIAL OUTDRIVE LUBE PUMP, 6 LIFE PRESERVERS, FLARE GUN, 20'x30' COVER, AND MORE...This beautiful boat has been in my family since it was purchased new from Roseland Outboard (Chicago) in 1966 by my Uncle who was a physician. He took great care of it and we've done the same as the 2nd title holders since 1991. It's great on the river or the lake. We've even taken it from Hammond to Michigan City a couple times and had a ball. Now it's your turn! Fish'n'Ski or just joy ride. We have another boat and don't use this one anymore, so you should!

NOTE (after boat was sold);

BUCValu listed this vessel as having a value of $6,350-7,300 with the usual stipulations to add or subtract percentages for above or below average condition. Our package was clearly above average in every respect. What the market bears though is a different story. We got an offer only after lowering our asking price to $3,595 and sold the boat for 3K, which we had planned as our bottom line. While the BUCValu report left us feeling good, it was unrealistic with respect to the market. On the other hand, the BUC book shows a value for our '82 310 Sundancer far below what we would ever consider accepting as a sale price. Go figure.
