Assuming you mean my "earlier estimate" of £300 that was a joke and if you can find 2000 15hp Merc or Mariner's in the UK with 1 owner in "very very good condition" I'll have 100 of them please. In fact make that 1000.
If your referring to my £695-£995 quote then I'd agree somewhere in the middle would suit it well. £900 is a reasonable asking price if it's open to sensible movement to secure a sale!
I don't see it as a buyers Market by any means. A decent 2 stroke is very hard to come by especially in the higher HP range. If you have one you will have a queue waiting or it. I have a long waiting list on 5hp-60hp. Just cannot find enough of them to supply!
