please note the boat is set back as much as a can due to no engine weight when engine fitted will then adjust the axles to give me about 70kg nose weight

I had heard that the Mercurys were in short supply, due to high demand in the US. The EU tariffs probably havenít helped either.

My boat build was delayed because Barrus withheld the engine that was destined for me - they wanted to have it on display at a shareholders meeting as it was "new tech" back then. At the time I was quite peeved and inquired would the sign on it say "Example of how to upset customers and damage share value!"

That said, it's the time of the year that outboards are hard to get and very often manufacturers can't meet national delivery quota - I've heard the USA has a tendency to get what it wants and "rest of world" get sloppy seconds.

Talk to Andy Andrews at Berthon - he might be able to help source an engine.
