Sorry i've been out of state. I'm from back east, (NJ) Back there when you need to but a new outboard you can use your old one as a trade in. My question is, do dealers do the same thing here? I recieve some good advice from some of the guys on here, and I was thinking if anybody knew it would be the guys here. Take it easy on my, i'm feeling kinda dumb for not knowing the answer!
