Post Need advice on Boat/Motor
I'm trying to figure out which way to go and was hoping to get some advice. My 1648 Lowe is currently without a transom. I'm rebuilding with aluminum and waiting on my neighbor to tig weld it not sure if it will be ready for Wisconsin southern opener. I have a scissor blind that I built for the boat that I've been tweaking/improving over the past couple of years. Now as far as motors go I just sold my swomp longtail. Great motor and got me into some tight places but wasn't practical switching between that and outboards every season. I also want something that's easier to drive over longer distances so I can venture further from the launch in a timely manner. I have a 2001 90hp merc tiller that I bought from a merc employee and it's in really good shape. I know it's way too much power for boat but I might just throw it on when transom is done to test for leaks. I also have an atlas micro jacker at my disposal. I also have a 1980's 30 hp mariner(made in Japan) in good shape with stainless prop that should fetch around 800. I was thinking of going the 1860 route... tracker, G3, weldbilt... using money from longtail sale and current boat with 30 mariner sale. Then put the 90 tiller on and be done with it. OR trade the 90 outboard and cash for a newer pro drive and put on current boat till funds are available for new/newer boat. That 90 would be awesome getting me where I want to go whether I'm on the river or on the Mississippi but worry about the shallows where's it's choked with weeds. Let me know if you guys have any ideas/suggestions. Thanks
