Default New Boat Owner

Hello club,

Currently just purchased a 1990 Maxum 22ft 120 Force motor. I have yet to go pick the boat up, but from talking to the owner, a trusted guy that I know that also knows him real well, is that I am getting a great boat. I do not know much about boats, never owned a boat, and do not know much about the 120 force engine. The last boat I was really in contact with was my parents 272 Rinker which that was about 10 years ago and have not been much into them since. Nice weather, fiancÚ, and lake house have bought me back to buying a boat. Starting old, small, and hopefully reliable, I am looking for a lot of insight on these types of boats.

Thanks

You didn't mention what the boat model was. 120 hp will be good for putzing around but it will strrugle to carry a heavy load or adult skier. The older 2 strokes are thirsty and smoke, but good engines. I am seeing a lot of old boats repowered with newer engines providing the owners with a new feeling boat at 1/3 rd the price of new. I recently sold my 1988, 22' Grady with a 2006 225 E-tec for more than I bought the boat in 1995.
