I can get it shipped to Southampton next working day for 40. That includes the outboard, fuel tanks and stand.

For the outboard alone it would cost 20.

Cheers.

Just looked at mine. The serial number is a sticker on the side with some clear film over it. I cannot see any other numbers on it anywhere.

I'm almost tempted to buy this and sell it next year! As said I paid more than this for a serviced one off a dealer recently.

Trouble is without a serial number you cannot insure it. You have no way of tracing it history, or if it's been stolen before (I'm not suggesting it has). I've bought from Dorian before and was very happy with that purchase. I'm still tempted but just think its difficult for me to do anything with it! If I was a private buyer I'd snap it up (although that prop looks to have done a fe hours).

I agree with the insurance. I got a few quotes and they all wanted the number. I had run the serial number through stolenboats.org before purchase too even though it was from a well known dealer. Even for indemnity only they still want the numbers.

Seems rubbish that the serial number is only a sticker in a marine environment but the serial numbers on my computers and hifi gear are only stickers too and they are worth more than my outboard. Maybe if serial numbers were etched onto outboards in a few places as cars are now there would be less theft. With modern manufactring this can't be that expensive.

I thought Cameron had vetoed the EC as they had banned the sale of new 2 stokes? The whole financial crisis was just a smoke screen for the real issue of the problems that being in the EU had caused the UK boater.

So if we are out of the EU perhaps we can buy new 2smokes again

I can assure you chaps that to my knowledge it is not stolen.

I purchased the engine from a chap in Plymouth earlier in the year and he told me that it had done no more than 15 hours.

I have never personally used it at sea, I had it serviced when I got it and the engineer who did the service work said it runs as sweet as a nut. I have never used it since.

You can see his details on the sticker on the top of the engine cover, if you have any doubts give him a call and mention my name, he will hopefully remember the outboard as he did say they are becoming rare.
