Yes I confused the two names.
Thanks for the clarification!

I'm not buying via the boats and outboards website and their advertiser as I've found a much better deal myself

Sneaky git!
Big thumbs up for Speedshift here too.....They've carried lots of bit and pieces for us including several outboards.....Always found them to be reliable /cheap. In fact, a couple of years ago one of the local drivers they use out of Swansea, who had carried on with his deliveries through the snow (when others had headed home) delivered a large OB for us .....couldn't make it up the driveway though, so assisted us by carrying it with a group of mates I dragged out of the pub....

Thanks razor.

I'd popped back to ask boatsandoutboards who his preferred courier was after his experiences with speedshift.

The chandler supplying my tohatsu is happy to strap to a standard pallet if necessary.

I use "online pallet" who have never failed me yet. It's all the same though so provided it's secure on a pallet I'm sure it will be fine.
