Don't be tempted with any of the Yammie mid section spares on EBay from the seller based in Soham, Cambridgeshire or you'll be throwing good money after bad.

Is it a 50G engine? They're relatively scarce to find spares as commercial fishermen used to favour them. Palletise it and ship it back would be my advice and get a full refund.

It's a 1990 'D'

Was the outfit bought from a dealer who in the course of his trade would owe you a warranty? If it was an Ebay purchase and it was either a buy it now or auction in the boat part of the Vehicles section... or it was a classified Ebay ad then the buyer protection doesn't cover you.

I have one here but before you do anymore take off the plastic lower tray to get into the powerhead bolts. If you can slacken get them out one at a time easy job. If they are seized send it back at any cost.

Hi everyone.

Can I say thanks very much to all who have offered assistance and their views on this thread.

I took the chance to drive up to Davies at Newport on Tay today.
Nice day for a drive and to clear my head and do a bit of thinking.

Davie echoed what many have said, that this is old damage and has been like that for a while. Also confirmed that without the DIY confidence to try fixing something like this myself and the slim chance nothing else being wrong with the engine, then it's pretty much a write off. Thanks for taking the time Davie, I appreciate how busy you are (if you're reading this).

Since the seller says that he hadn't notice the damage and said he was as honest as possible about condition 'good condition, everything working as it should', we are at a bit of an impasse.

I paid 1750 for the package.

Boat and trailer were worth 800-900, exact same for engine.

Boat and trailer are still worth that, give or take. Engine is worth scrap - what, 150.

So that leaves me paying 1750 for something that is worth ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM 1050.

I propose to ask the seller to split the difference with me, as he has indicated that he is open to resolving this.

Thoughts?

Thanks again.

It's clearly not in good condition and the seller would appear to be guilty of misrepresentation.

From what you have told us it sounds like your proposal is quite a generous one. I'd be looking to take the whole rig back for a full refund, including transport costs in both directions.

Ok thanks.

Are you of the opinion too (having looked at the damage pic) that the seller having owned the boat/engine for 18 months would have been aware of this damage?
