Extra Long Shaft Outboard for Sailboats

I have an Evinrude Extra long shaft 7.5 HP outboard I use in the Southern Chesapeake. It came with my Bristol 24 which I just sold.....

Anybody know how to tell the age? The numbers are: E8SRL CTA.

How much could I ask for this motor? It's got some scratches but was used only about 4 or 5 times a year and then stored correctly for about 5 years.....starts, shifts and runs great in a tank....looks so, so.

The extra long shaft really helped stop cavitation in a steep chop and when going to the bow.

Spread the word.....becktom@msn.com in Virginia Beach

Post an inquiry on this site with the Mod. and Ser. #'s, they can probably tell you the year. But don't ask what it's worth (read the top of their page).
What's it's worth can vary alot. Once you know the year, nada.com has a section for outboard motor values.

Long shaft evinrude.

Tom, I have sent a message by email but here is another. I believe the number of the year is 85 I have a 84 Johnson 9.9 xtra long shaft that is giving me a fit. I have been trying to find a new or used one that will fit my Bristol 24 and have run up a wall for new 4 strokes that don't fit. I am looking for a 25 inch shaft that will work. Does the throttle on your use a gear at the tiller body joint or does it use cable on a pulley like at the motor end of the tiller. I work in sothern maryland and would like to talk to you about buying your motor. In my email I have included a cell number you can contact me by. Looking forward to hearing from you. Randy in Annapolis
