Hi,
I just bought a C-Dory 22 cruiser re-powered it with a New Mercury 115 hp. 4 stroke, Command Thrust, extra long shaft with a aluminium jack plate. I also outfitted with all the necessary fishing gear including Simrad. I live in San Diego and have 5 offshore trips under my belt (aprox. 150 m ea.) The motor has a 5 year warranty that started a few months ago. I bought The C-Dory from a guy that NEVER used the boat, it sat beside his house for 19 years so it is in great shape! When I got it I spent about 2 months working on it. It looks like new!!! I spent way too much and now finances have become more important than a boat.
Call or email me for photos and or more info….
P.S. The Mercury Command Thrust motors have the next size up lower ends, so my 115 has a 150 hp LE (bigger prop, more oil and bigger gears)

Michael just my opinion after talking to you on the phone.
These are people here on this site you can trust and the best chance for you to sell your boat at the best price. If I were you I would list everything you have done to it in detail with pictures. Your boat is worth what someone is willing to pay and this is your best and quickest venue. It is not worth what you hope or think but what someone is willing to pay. Cheers..read the serenity prayer on my recent Hawaii post. It works!

This seller and I shared about his 22 for over 1/2 hour. He has poured cash and sweat equity into this boat. He is most comfortable with talking over his work and he has lots of great upgrades. The motor install is pretty impressive. He is quick to call you back if you give him a jingle. Plus if you go to see the boat it is in San Diego - HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!! Bob Jarrard

Just my two cents. Cars, boats, rvs. When I've been in the market for these things, if the price isn't listed with some details, you've already lost my interest. Also, some of us here will occasionally know of someone looking to buy a C-Dory. Having some details we can share information to those possible buyers. I'm not sure it makes much sense to post something for sale but not list the asking price or much in the way of details. JMHO. Colby

I agree. Lack of a price makes me think they want much more than it's worth and hope to convince someone it's worth the money.

Ads with no price gets 0 inquiries when I'm buying anything.

Although a worn out engine devalues the boat by almost as much as a new engine costs; a new engine does not increase the value equal to the amount the seller has spent on that new engine. The jack plate is very unusual on a C Dory--and is not something that a person who does use in any place than very shallow bays, would use.

Some people misunderstand the jack plate use.
I even put one on a Rosburough RF246. One main advantage, it allows easy adjustment for raising or lowering the motor to get the prop in the best water. In the authors use, he wanted the motor powerhead higher off the waterline, yet the prop was at the same water level as a 20" motor would have been when bolted to the transom.
Yes there may be some bass boat guys who are using electric jackplates to raise there prop height while running at high speed. This is not the C-dory guys set up. Getting the powerhead higher prevents dunking the exhaust ports while in heavy seas.

My post was not intended to be a ad, I was testing the waters...considering that all boats are different I don't want to deal with people that won't take the time to call me. For example, the post above this one explained the reason for a jack plate. There are many aspects of THIS boat that are best discussed on the phone!

How does this work? An outboard engine has the exhaust ports underwater by design.

Exhaust ports by design are NOT under the waterline.

Boats with I/O's have had many instances of waterlock.

Here is how your outboard exhaust ports can be dunked in large seas. Shut off your main motor and fire up the trolling kicker motor and start trolling. In large seas the main motor is getting dunked by seas washing over the transom, since it is not running there is no exhaust pressure exiting the combustion chamber.

In the case of this boat for sale, having mounted the 25" long motor in the way it was done, is a huge advantage. The prop is nearly at the same water level as a 20' motor mounted on the transom. This is a very nice set up.

That is a astute observation and true, but it goes a little further...I learned on my 16" angler with a merc. 60 hp command thrust that the transom is small/short and the engine ends up too deep (offshore use) On the 60 I would get salt water pooling up inside the engine cowling so I rigged my new motor accordingly.
