Hey everyone, I'm Ryan, new to the site and about to purchase my first Inflatable (and my first boat) Thursday. Since im completely new to these type of boats i really hope you guys can help me decide.
My choices are between at Sevylor Sevymarine SV9 and a Quicksilver 270.
Both are 8'9".
Info on the sevy
Info on the QS 270
Im hoping to use the boat with about a 5 hp motor and mostly for fishing and just cruising around. (Lots of just trolling and fishing though)
From what i've read the Sevy doesnt have a keel and it has slatted wood floor? Can't find much info on it. The
They are both about the same price and the same condition.... im not sure what to go for, can any of you give me some advise?
Oh another thing i forgot to add is that they person selling the Sevylor boat is throwing in a 9.9hp Mariner motor that needs some work. They said the water pump is gone and they arn't sure what else is wrong with it. How much does it cost to get a motor that size rebuilt usually? Is it worth it?
Thanks so much and its nice to meet you all.
