Ebay it! From experience people go crazy for small outboards. I would expect you'd get 350 to 400 for it.

I want to keep it for the kids sailing dinghy. I just need an idea of what to allow for it. Would 200 be the money of it?

If it's tidy I doubt you'd find one similar for less than 400, have a look around...

I doubt that Mol, unless he got a really sweet deal. I remember my mate buying a new Soozook DT6 in 1992 for 660 and that was a decent price at the time.

That sounds about right to me, depending of course whether you're buying or selling. As you're buying, take about half that figure.

Yeah! I was there when Nige bought it from Robbin' Curnow. Perhaps it was more than I remember.
