I've got an early 80s merc 35 hp on a mid 60s starcraft aluminum boat (rivets leak on the boat) in storage inside a shed in Bellville, about 2 hrs toward Houston from here. It's a good motor, but has been in storage for ~4 yrs, so I'd have to back it into a pond (or put on rabbit ears) and start it before offering it to you. It's electric start and has good throttle/shift cables and solid steering. Nice stainless prop plus two backup aluminums. We'll be going down there in 1-2 weeks, so if you haven't found anything before then, pm me and I'll check it out for you and bring it back here for you to test run if you're interested. I was supposed to give it to my bro, but he ended up going to NY state and buying a boat up there. I've been too lazy to sell it...but it might work for you.
