May just be my screen. Does the hood match the rest of the engine?

May be the light? check the letter on the bottom righthand of the serial number sticker against the yam chart, with those logos I reckon it should be about 2000+

If you post the serial number I can check yamahas dealer site for you. My initial feeling is the powerhead and leg look more early/mid 90's blue rather than the later blue grey that matches the hood. Decent photos and a serial number would confirm however.

That was what I was thinking, but looking at it closer the bottom pic of the 3 of the powerhead looks the right colour.

Paint it. It's not bad corrosion, just crap paint. Just make sure it's properly cleaned of corrosion before you paint it.

Update

Engine plate suggested it is a 1998 model.

It was serviced privately by a qualified marine engineer. Was given his phone number and facebook. The engine had readings of roughly 135 psi on each cylinder. I will bring a compression kit to confirm this.

Looking at going to see it next weekend. So wish me luck.
