I know it's old, I'm asking if anyone knows how old.
From looking at the pictures, all the exposed rubber seems to be in very good condition and unperished, but of course, pictures only tell so much, so I'll be having a proper look at it before committing to buy it.
I dont expect everyone to like it, or agree that it's something they would have on their boat, but if it gets me out on the water, for what I consider a reasonable price, I don't see much harm in it. I'll only be using it in Belfast Lough where there is good VHF and mobile phone coverage, and I'll have an auxiliary.
I'm not sure how you can be certain on the power rating unles you're certain on the year, which you don't appear to be..... Have seen ones that look very similar and they are 1990 MOD motors.
