I am looking at repowering my 19 cape. Not interested at paying 10 or 12k on a new outboard but would like to find a 2004 or newer to Repower. Let me know if you know of anyone with one for sale.

Good luck my friend!
Used engines in the year and horsepower range you are looking for are few and far between. Especially if looking for a 4-stroke.
Most you will find for sale used are off Tournament boats with a ton of hours on them. So, you could end up buying someone else's future problems.
I would consider having a reputable mechanic rebuild what you already have if possible. The older engines burn more fuel, make more noise and smoke more. But, unless you can buy new, I think you will be money ahead to rebuild and pay the difference at the pump.

I don't agree. I sold a 2003 2 stroke that was in excellent condition a few months ago. I sold the motor in order to buy a 4 stroke. You can find a good used outboard if you do some research.
