If it fell overboard before it got to our shores it would be salvage

Hardly seems worth it when you can buy a new 3.5 4 stroke for a 100 more, with the benefit of a 5 year warranty.

I reckon a new 2 stroke would only have 1 years warranty, as it's only (officially) available in Europe to commercial users.
