30hp too much for aerotec 380?

Seen a local aerotec with a 2010 30hp merc on it, is that bad news for the transom only being rated to 25hp?

30 HP engines are usually same detuned 25 HP versions on most modern engine brands, same size and weight, so not really an issue.

Just inflate all air chambers to factory stated working presssure to avoid transom ungluing & stress issues if liking doing extreme boating. If scary ride, you can always throttle less or limit the throttle range internally.

BTW, same weight on both 25/30, 2 & 4 strokes engines.

Happy Boating

This guy is getting desperate to sell.

2006 30hp, 2005 aerotec 380, 2005 trailer (with good suspension).

he is now dropped the price to $1400 GPP.

I know this isnt the ideal fishing diving boat, but darn thats cheap, considering its in excellent condition.

Buy it then, I've had no problems fishing from the Bombard. You can always swop motor or boat later if you find something more suitable.

An object is only worth what some one is prepared to pay for it. At the end of the day it's you who has to decide if something is worth the money.

Hi SpearRib

Im with Stray .. only you know what is a bargain to yourself ... and you said "That's darn cheap" so not sure why you are asking ?


You know the aussie market better than most on this forum.. so go by your own experience. You have been looking for a while so should know cost by now ?

Sorry if that reply is not intellectual enough

Thank you Gurnard, fortunately the 12 Oclock outage prevented my reply being posted; it wasn't as politely worded as yours.

no need to be defensive/precious i was being sincerely complimentary by saying intellectual as thats the flip side of looking at it, which most wouldnt. most want to know what others pay for items.

so im also asking what they generally sell for as that "market" value is also as important as what "I" think its worth.
