It's a 1448, been looking for one for years. Priced one out new and it was over $4500, I got one for less than that but with some extras I don't need. My question is this, it came with a 25hp Mercury SS 4 stroke outboard, I think it might be a 2015, very low hours. I'm wondering what it's worth, if I should try to sell on my own or just go to a boat shop so I don't have to store it until spring (hard to sell in the fall). Outboard prices seem to be all over the place and I'm not sure if there's a shortage like there is with used cars and a bunch of other stuff.

Planning to paint with stencils before the season starts. I'll have to take some before and after pics.

Don't sell it to a dealer, they'll give you half or less than what it's really worth. That's how they pay the rent.

You won't likely have another chance to get a similar motor for a reasonable price so you might want to think about keeping it for a while before you commit to selling. Boat rides are fun! Especially a 25 on a 14 footer…. That thing will fly!

On the other hand, the market is fairly high these days so if you know you don't want it, it's a good time to sell stuff

So how in the heck do I get this thing off the transom? It weighs 150+ lbs and I don't have a motor jack.
Ask your husband?
