    Hey, All: Looking for a reliable 4-stroke outboard to push around my 11ft Sea Nymph aluminum boat. I can probably go up to about $800 bucks or so...

    Been running an old 3hp Gamefisher and it has left me relying on the trolling motor one too many times (like, every time). Ideally want a 10hp, but that might be WAY too tough given my price point. Would love to buy from someone here rather than CL or OfferUp.

    Any leads or suggestions much appreciated. I frequent MB, but would love to dunk in SD Bay. Also plan use at Lake Hemet and SD-area lakes.

    Ah, thanks--didn't think of Bloody Decks. Will check it out! I've seen a couple good deals on CL, but got sketched when I've asked questions of the sellers. $500-$800 is A LOT of cash for me and I want something that actually works!

    He's the guy when it comes to yamahas but dont think he deals much in tiny motors....

    Another BD source ive held onto over the years, he would be the guy to ask for used options he has on hand.
    619-887-1532 Fernando Genesta the Outboard King.
    Also dont hesitate to call local shops to see what they may have in the used arena, Sunset Marine, Boat Grotto, Dingy Doctor, etc...

    I've got a newer 2019 tohatsu 9.9 4 stroke efi with low hours on it that i'm trying to sell. It's quite a bit out of your budget but thought i'd throw it out there for you.

    Junirol might have a 4 stroke 9.9 tohatsu for sale. Might be a little over you budget though. Shoot him a message.
