$100 Dollors? How do you sleep at night?

I hope you took who ever you got it from out to dinner first.

I have got to pay closer attention to CL!!

That'll get the job done. Good thing it worked. It looks kind of lonely out there on the lake.

Looks and sounds great. And I thought I got a deal for $150. And I only got one prop.
Had surgery. This will hold my Bearcat project up a few weeks.

And I thought you we're going to tell us what you paid for it. My $100 motors have been junk. I did get one last year for $135, three props, a factory tach, and controls. It runs great and was my best buy of all of them. Mine have run between 26 to 28 mph and I can troll it at 1.5mph @ 500rpm on my 16ft Sylvan.

It sounds great in the video's!

Thanks all now I need to get a tech set up on it. The boat is a 1957 EnduraCraft 14 1/2 footer. I made up a transom riser so I can run long shafts. 2 peices of aircraft alumimum inside and out bolted togather with a 2x4 at the top. It has held up with a johnson stinger75hp and evinrude 70 hp on it So it should be able to stand up to the Homelite. I have a little more to do to it but sure like it.
