Outboard motors in Scotland
FYM (Forth Yacht Marina) in Grangemouth. They also used to have a link with Clyde Chandlers in Glasgow but I've not visited there. They stock ex RNLI engines and they are normally very good. You can choose you model if they've got a few in stock. Some of these engines have been backup motors and they've never seen the sea. I've had 3 30hp Mariners and they've all been good. One was brand new. Look for the ones which have NOT been painted up. Look for tell tail signs of paint on top of the grease to recognise these. I've a pal who had a 40hp and it was good too. They give you a warranty. Telephone: 01324 665071. If you are over on the east, their place is worth a visit. They let you wander around and it's always good to see the way others do it - Ribs, cruisers and work boats. Let me know how you get on.
