but if you are going to store it in the console you will need to lay it flat or it will leak loads of oil

I also have one of these (not yet worked out how best to fit to my tiny transom). Appart from the problems of laying it down (the right way so the cylinder doesn't end up full of oil) I think it is a pretty good engine - but it is quite big - a 2 stroke Mariner etc, seem more compact.
