This made interesting reading for me

Bought our boat just over 2 years ago from a private sale on Ebay. When we went to Anglesey to collect the seller took us to Diva and produced a load of paperwork for the service history which was all done at Diva.

When we got the boat home and had our local dealer do a full service he reported that it looked like the engine and leg had never been touched before as all the parts were original even the spark plugs.

We thought the boat was still a good price but threw away all the paperwork as it was totally bogus.

They do have a lot ouf outboard spares, but in the past friends have experienced bad customer service.
Some of their used outboards are optimistically priced

Not saying you're wrong, but how would you know that the spark plugs were original vs. replaced with OEM items?
