Default Motor for 1979 16' Lund

A boat am working on (16' Lund) is rated for a 40 hp. thinking about either a 25-30-40 2 Stroke Johnson. Anyone have experience with any of these motors? Trying to stay away from 4 strokes due to cost and weight.

Thanks for any advice.....Gary

My only suggestion for the older Evinrude Johnsons is stay away from the loopers, they were known for bad ring land design and building carbon which led to stuck rings. If run wide open they were great but if used for trolling was a big issue.

Had an older Johnson and also Evinrude both were had the automatic oiler taken off. The mechanic told me on these older motors mix the gas and oil and wonít be any problems.

Those were really good old motors. I still see them on the back of older fiberglass and aluminum tillers down here. You also can't go wrong with the Merc and Mariner twin tillers back from the 80's. and
90's.
My brother had a 89 40 Mariner tiller twin that was bullet proof. He'd still be running it if his wife did not not run in to the back of the boat.

Looks like a good one Gary. I'd ask to fill it with some water to see if it leaks. Btw are those trim tabs?

Does not look bad at all. I paid $750 for a beat up alumacraft and a rusty shorlander trailer back in 2015 in central Wi. Spent another $200 to get it ready to pull back to Fla. If I were looking for a utility boat to fish smaller waters I would jump on it. A 15 Merc would push it 15-17 mph, a 25 would do quite nicely. Add a MinnKota 55lb Endura and a grp 29 battery and your good to go. It is well worth $750!

Default question

What do you think about a floor with a skid proof finish, instead of carpet or vinyl? Keep weight down and could be used for duck hunting

A 25 hp is a good motor found one with electric start for $1000.00. Been told any year 1985 and newer are good.

Have you thought about using RINO liner finish from the 1st side rivet line down across the floor, instead of a wood floor with a covering?
