    Nordic 19" info

    Found one FS, 1978 w/ old Merc 115. $6500. https://www.powerboatlistings.com/view/54732. Just looking for something for the lake. Don't need big speed. I race modified outboard hydro in the NE.
    Thanks

    Wrong motor for that hull, would need a 200 to get into high 70 low 80's. set back bracket does not have enough height, would need a hyd jack plate for family use.

    Try and take Daves advice - its going to need more than a 115 . I belive you may like the price but dont be fooled - its not over once you buy that - your going to be on the water but your going to spend some more dough for another motor and such . Save your dough if you can wait and buy a better piece . Hopefully not painted but good gellcoat and possibly a nice motor 200 plus . A jack plate and more .

    OK. Got it. Even though I was just looking for a 60 mph tunnel, and I circle race a 200# boat/motor kneeler hydro at 85 mph, you're probably right, I'd be looking for more speed. I've got the money for more, but just weighing my time to use it vs price. I've been boating for 45 years, had/have pontoons/runabouts/jet skis/john boats. Thanks for the good advice.

    19ft pickleforks are getting harder find. I'd pull and sell that tower of power. Great repower for a pontoon.
    That 19 Nordic is a classic and would be a fun project. With a 2.4 or 2.5 200 you'll definitely be in the 80's with some set up.
    My brother in law has a 21 Eliminator and they are just a blast to drive.
    I would think with a 200 on that Nordic it would fetch 10k or more.

    Kinda what I was thinking. That old Merc would push my 28' pontoon around nice. HA! The local Marina owner is a friend of mine, and has a used 2.5 he will give me a good deal on. Someone else moving up in power traded it in. Keep you all posted. I'll need set up help.
    Thanks

    Dave is right i have an eliminator ran 80s with a 2.5 200 , careful if its a true cat will blow over easy approaching 100 they pack tremendous air, running 93 at 7200 still can be setup to run faster but its allready been blown over.

    Take note, that post on powerboat listings is a little over two years old, the old listings never go away on that sight.....
