Doesn't seem to bear the usual hallmarks of an ebay scam. Doesn't mean the engine's not knocked off of course.

Yes I know about them but this one has been on B&O for some time I think he just wants to shift it!

Anyone who stands a 225hp outboard on their best lounge carpet, leaning on the recently emulsioned anaglypta has to be genuine!

I think it's an outboard dealer or something, cos he has quite a few engines for sale.

looks totally genuine to me - the feedback history is the thing to look for - also they list their phone number etc etc

Wish I had spotted this one earlier - still auction hasn't finished yet - they tend to go crazy last minute!
