He's only got 89.2% which in Ebay terms means he's a very, very dodgy geezer. He hasn't had a feedback since Feb2001 (yes, three years ago!) and his negatives are for non-delivery after payment.

Engine looks good though.

Souds like a bloke to deal with in cash only, once the goods are in your hand.

Nick - I'm going to have to set Dirk Diggler on to you!

Nick, come out of that corner!

You've found what may be a good bargain, but the seller may be less than perfect. Bear in mind that whilst 89.2% may sound like a good "score", it actually means that 10.8% of his customers thought badly enough about him to publicly state their displeasure. 95%+ seems to be OK from my own experience.

I am of course a 100% er!

Please don't take it personally, I just wouldn't like to someone taken in on a high value Ebay sale.

Having said all this, I'm sure laprachaun23 has mended his ways after being away for three years. I just wonder where he's been...

Well the VRO failing certainly sounds like it could be the cause of my problems,
Iíve contacted Bill Higham Marine with the engine symptoms and they say it doesnít sound too healthy at all.

Itís booked in for next Thursday for a check-up, Iíll post the results a soon as I can.
