    Hey everyone,
    I'm the second owner of a 96 Logic 150. I've had it 12 years & can verify these boats can stand up to abuse & neglect!
    I'm mostly in the shallows with the oyster beds, & have hit more sandbars than I care to admit, but my boat has handled it all. The 40 hp Force gets a lot of sneers & jokes made about it, but it's still kicking, so it's staying. I don't have to worry about anyone stealing it:)
    I joined to get the bunk layout for my trailer, but I'm looking forward to learning more about the boat.

    Welcome Aboard and what a old warhorse that is!
    Now is that a older Chrysler Force, or Newer Mercury Force variant? I agree though, if it works no need to change it ;)

    Thanks guys!

    It's a 1997 Mercury Force. With the help of google/ youtube I've learned how to do some maintenance myself. Bad fuel/ ethanol are the main problems I've dealt with. It shakes @ idle, like many I've seen online, but runs strong once on a plane.

    Try some of this in the fuel tank and allow it to both set for a while in the tank before running it through ;)

    Some of the shakes could be simple crud build up, as well as needing the idle circuits cleaned up some. This (short of taking thing apart) should help with both :cool:

    I've seen that, but always used sea foam. I'll check it out.
