What's the year and model? The F150s are extremely reliable as has been mentioned. There was a specific year range in the 2000's that had some issues with a harmonic balancer. Some people were...

A carbureted 2-stroke or a Yamaha HPDI 2-stroke? They are very different animals.

I had a 150 VMAX HPDI on an 1800 Fisherman. That motor and hull combination was stellar. Great holeshot, good fuel economy, reasonably quiet, and good top end speed, and never smoky exhaust. Not...

I don't doubt a Triton with a 250 SHO can run 60. I do have doubts about reaching that speed with a full tank, full load of gear, and 4 adults. Unless some of those 4 people are awfully light...

The 20ft glass boats have evolved over the last decade and have given some priority to rough water handling and ride over flat out speed. A friend of mine had a 2012 620 with a 250 that was faster...

At one point I was told or read somewhere that the 90 and 115 crossflows of that vintage were the same block with different carburetors. Unfortunately I can't remember where to find that information...

I use this one for gulp plastics. If any of the bags leak it keeps my boat from getting juiced. https://www.planomolding.com/fishing/storage/waterproof/deep-bulk-storage-waterproof-stowaway-3700

My brother dropped a rod over once a number of years ago. It took all 3 of us in the boat about a half hour, but eventually we pulled it back up with some daredevil spoons with big trebles.

I'd echo the previous comments about changes to the width. I had an '89 Alumacraft Trophy 17ft, followed by an '04 Lund Fisherman 18-1/2ft. The Lund felt like it was twice as big as the Alumacraft...

I wouldn't count on used boat prices dropping substantially in a couple of years. They'll probably stabilize and come down a little bit, but not a precipitous drop. I've heard rumblings that...

If you're going to use it for trolling with bottom bouncers I'd lean toward medium instead of medium light. I haven't owned an HMX but I do have an elite tech walleye in 7'2" medium light. Love it...

That seems like a pretty decent price for that rig. Some people selling boats are seeing dollar signs right now and asking quite a bit higher prices than you would have seen a couple years ago.

I had a 96 Johnson 115, which was probably a different model than yours because I believe the crossflow versions were discontinued in the late 90's. One spring after doing some maintenance work...

Not a terribly similar hull, but I had a big improvement in keeping the bow down with a Rev4 vs. Yamaha pro series on an aluminum 18.5ft Lund. A Bravo may also be an option in between.

I wouldn't spend too much time investigating waterlogged foam at this point. There are a number of potential culprits to cross off the list first. If the boat was propped to get to 5800-5900 RPM...

Shore fishing or boat fishing? A lot of tackle will overlap but there are a few things that I wouldn't buy if I was only fishing from one or the other.
