Right chaps. After a lot of thought and even more pacing up and down I decided to forget about ever buying a parsuns outboard and instead spend my money on a decent engine. As speed is not an issue I went for a 2008 honda 10hp 4 STROKE not much lighter than my 25 2stroke but much better condition. Only bought it today so havent been out yet. Will keep you informed.

Bigs thanks to everyone for there input :-D

Clyde its awesome. Took it out this morning and it runs perfectly. Flat out I clocked 15mph on the gps which is good for me. I whizzed about for around 40 minutes and used very little fuel.

Now I have to decide what to do with the mariner 25hp 2 stroke
