If this is the wrong place feel free to move it to the proper place .

We are looking at a new , 2012 lowe stryer 16 , with a Mecury 30 h.p. on it . Its new old stock . Is there any concerns with the motor setting that long ? It is new never gassed up . I wouldn't think so but wanted to ask someone who would know .

Never had a new outboard before or 4 stroke . Kinda excited ! LOL ! I fully understand this is not a big water boat . Have no interest in nosebleed speeds eather . This should move maw and me around just fine I'm thinking .

$10.999 Rigged out boat , motor ,trl . Seems like a deal to me . ? Thanks for any help with our first new boat purchase guys .

If it starts and runs, Sounds like a good deal

It is from a dealer , will be fully serviced with new warrantee . 2 batts. 2 bank charger , transom saver , small fish finder . Hinged tongue on trl. No spare tire , or cover .

Should be no concerns with the motor. everything will be under warranty. I would sure haggel for a spare though. sounds like a pretty good deal.

Sounds like a great boat

Sounds like a good deal. And it will get you down the river faster than you think.

I think so too. Hope so ! After reading that the 40 hp. motors that are so pushed by dealers were built in china , I was done . The 30 is a tohatso "sp" . Kinda chaps me that a Mercury outboard ain't American made . I am sure the china motors are fine . Them Tohaso's are well proven from what I read about them .

I think 30hp. wll be fine for our easing around . Boat has a 55 in. bottom , should plane quickly with min. power . Am I wrong here ?

There is just about nothing completely made in the USA anymore. Just about any motor has bearings seals or something that is made overseas now a days. And a lot of the products are very good. I think that the 30hp motor would be fine and look on the bright side it will use less gas. With the warranty you are going to be protected for a while just like any other outboard motor. But it don't hurt to haggle a little like Cray mentioned. If you like the rig that is what counts anyway. Good luck with your new rig and post some pictures here on post your boats forum.:twocents

Sounds like a good deal, especially if the 30 suits your needs. Probably why they still have it. If ya like haggle best ya can and go fishin. Them are nice boats. Looked at em when I was shoppin boats.

Get them to put a spare tire and wheel in the deal at no extra charge

03-13-2015, 04:24 PM
I agree with all said so far. Get the spare. If they won't throw it in don't buy one from them. Wally has tire and rim combo's as does tractor supply. It's a gotta have item. The boat will do fine, look into an upgrade on the electronics down the road.

Marlinmonty; Don't forget to take a picture or two and post them in (show your boat) sticky on this forum. We like to see pictures here on crappie.com site. Lots of luck with the new boat.

Should be fine. We got our Pro Team 175 last year new and we went on and got the matching spare and the custom cover for it. Yeah the spare we got was a little extra from a walmart one but at least it matches the ones that is on the trailer. If you are gonna be traveling and staying at a motel on trips I would definitely buy a cover for it. We put ours on each night at the motel and never have had any sticky fingers go inside of it during the night. Knock on wood
