107 quid is a royal piss take.
I think so, but he has offered that with the caveat that it's his first and final offer and that he doesn't have to offer me anything.

In other news, someone on ebay has asked me how much for the engine, I'll quote them the top end of whats suggested on here, 500.

500 seems cheap to me - even with that crack...

If I have missed it in the thread sorry.....
Was this an eBay auction or classified ad?
If it was an auction and paid for through PayPal start a grievance with eBay immediately. Item is not as described. You will be able to return the item (at your expense) and get a full refund from eBay. They chase the seller for the money.
I have done this in the past and is a fairly straightforward process..
Good luck whatever you decide to do!

The auction started on ebay, but I asked the seller for a buy it now price, so no cover.

Yes, outside ebay. I know.

A ten years plus member with 1500 plus 100% positive. Not just at buying, plenty for selling items.

Says that in his ownership of the boat, he always operated things from the left side of engine (fuel bulb, trim switch) so wouldn't have noticed the damage.

I noticed it within 10 seconds of tilting the engine down, from 3 metres away.

I referred above to helping a relative in a very similar case concerning a BMW motorcycle. The resolution was an offer for the seller to compensate 150 as goodwill gesture without accepting liability... and stating if that offer was rejected then there would be no further offers or communication... and he'd fight it to the very end if it came to court.

The buyer accepted the 150.

I think if you get 500 I would take it, it is going to exceed market value to fix it at that money.

BTW, where did the 107 quid come from for a mid section? That is mega cheap.

I completely agree, 107 is rubbish, however the seller really doesnt have to give you anything at all, so 100 odd quid is a lot better than nothing.

Dont beat your self up too much, even if you had bought through ebay its unlikely to be covered by them, vehicles and objects that are too big to post are excluded.

Take the money, remove the engine from the boat and put it on an auction. A 2 stroke 50hp Yamaha is very sort after, expecially for all SR4's around the country.
