I had a Mariner 40 (no power trim) on my old 5m Tornado which pulled my mate 14stone + up on a wake board . Don't recall what size or pitch prop I was using.

I don't have kit to do a compression test, but can certainly give it a visual once over and check.

Worth throwing this into the mix. Mariner 2002 ELPT 50hp 4-stroke. Out-with budget... but that's what banks are for. Sainsbury bank offer pretty competitive short-term loans at decent rates. http://www.seamarknunn.co.uk/download/usedob/used.pdf
thanks for the offer! I gave him a ring and he was moody as sin, like he didn't want to know. Don't understand some people ahah.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

One question I have is do outboard decrease in power much as they get older or is it just minute? As in a 2004 yamaha 60 will have more power than a 1995 yamaha 60?


Henry

There is this but not sure how heavy the 50hp 4 stroke carbed mariners are. I think they are around 105kg.

If he was a genuine seller, than he would welcome any inspection and should be able to talk about the engine at length. I can only apologise, we're usually applauded for our hospitality in this neck of the woods.

This is even older, but they're bullet-proof. Probably mid to late 80s. No idea if it's electric trim. Ebay purchases are bit of a hit or miss - they really need to checked over before committing to bid.
