1,800 tops, and that's with it being 100%, and being serviced.

Bill Higham (and he's not cheap) has a 2003 30hp Mariner 2-stroke short shaft, low hours with 6 months warranty for 2k. Bridger Marine are selling a new Honda 4-stroke with power-tilt and 6 year warranty for 4,300.

short shaft doesn't help at all I'm thinking
long shaft with ptt would do about 2 to 2.5k on ebay in May onwards based on my experience of selling a few outboards on there.
what will it actually fit with a short shaft??
Dory?

FWIW, is the OP sure it's Short Shaft, i.e. 15" approx. as opposed to Standard/Long Shaft at 20"? I found a huge amount of confusion out there in the terminology when I was buying my outboard. Obviously I ended up completely perplexed at times

As pointed out, a 15" 40HP is a bit limited in application....?

Dell boy and Orkney Dories are longshaft

Gotchiboy's old Zodiac Pro was apparently built with a Std shaft (15") transom.

Not all of them.

The Dell 11' had a shortshaft cutout. Can't think why, 'coz it floods at the slightest provocation even when it has been filled in to take a long shaft.


And Chris, you might want to look at the "bits'n'pieces" section........
