    Careful with that. Fiberglass tanks are no good for gas that has ethanol in it. They were indeed good, back in the day though.

    The tank repair didn't hold. I got a bigger used 14 ft aluminum which has a 20 hp on it. I'm using the little kicker as a back up. I got some fuel line and a few quick release fittings so I can run it off the bigger tank if need be.

    Can't have too many motors. lol I have learned this lesson well in the past. :usflag:

    When i priced a new 25 H.P. Johnson twenty years ago, it was $5000. I can't imagine what a 250 cost's.
