How to find used outboards - Canada

Hi All,

Well, I managed to find my sail boat through some ideas I found here, so I figured I may as well ask about a motor. Any weird/creative ways of tracking down an outboard? Before everyone and his brother starts telling me what they have for sale, keep in mind that:

1) I am in Canada, Montreal
2) I am currently flat broke. Just bought a sailboat, paid for the kids ski lessons & passes for the winter, etc.

Looking to buy one for the spring, but no harm in looking around now.

Paul

ebay
Newspaper classifieds
On line classifieds
Marina bulletin boards
Work bulletin boards
Put the word out to family / friends to keep an eye out for one - many people looking will find more than you will on your own.

Try calling the brokers - Boulet Lemellin is one I think. They frequently build up an inventory when they take trade-ins....,

boatforsale.org

Look under "Classifieds", then under "Motors". It's mostly Ontario/Quebec listings.

try also www.kijiji.ca I have seen some listed there. Expect $500 for an old outboard that works up to $2000 for a one year old model with electric start and alternator.

Ski lessons. Hmmmm ... you think you are broke now - wait til they develop a taste for ski racing ......
