Evinrude 18 hp Fastwin outboard in great shape--Full compression on both cylinders, fuel pump and water pump new; lower unit professionally rebuilt less than 15 operating hours ago, new plugs, fresh lower unit oil. Always run with non-ethanol gas and premium oil. Starts easy (usually one pull, even cold), pees strong and runs smooth. Has done more sitting than running since it was born and has many hundreds of trouble-free hours left, and yes, you can find parts online. Two props (one work one speed) both in excellent condition. I will add in a working 6 gallon tank; all you need is a fuel hose. Original blue OMC paint (not a repaint, THE original) on all except the cover, which is redone with a careful camo finish and protective clear coat. This late 60s model, which I bought used in good shape ten years ago and refurbished to excellent running condition, is a classic known for its strength, weight to power ratio, durability and simplicity. I have 600 at least invested, not counting my time, but will let er go for 450 cash. Needs a new home as I went to a smaller, lighter 4 stroke for my shallow water skiff; this one was too much on the transom or I'd still be running it. It's too sweet a motor to sit and incredible bang for the buck. This may be old but it's no beater!
