In image there appear to be other boats, which suggests a dealer/yard- so why is this the first engine? Or is it a pinched photo to offer a sale and grab money? Needs more info to be safe, contact the seller through e bay with questions about, where can you inspect it, where can you collect it, warranties

My first impression, run a mile. So I think I'll give it a miss C2 :-)

Ironically they've watermarked the photo.

so a q to seller about where it is.

ask for an extra photo... say the other side of the cowl.
