import

did anyone ever imported an outboard engine from the USA, and do you maybe have an adress or some thing?
I'm thinking about getting a motor from the states because they are very expensive in holland.
thank you

niels,
I have bought a chevy V8 in the states. The bying was not the problem but the transport of the engine. The cheapest way is to combine it with other transports. A friend of mine is also looking at some stuff to transport from the states so maybe we can combine things. Give me a PM.

By the way was your optimax 200 for sale via bootcentrum Hoorn.

greetings rene van es

The other company worth talking to is Raffshore in Belgium. http://users.skynet.be/sky34435/

Rumour has it they were supplying Merc parts to Sowester via a third party in the UK!
