I thought that was the case too (regarding storage/carrying)

But the instructions for the Tohatsu 9.8 2 stroke state that it needs to be stored "with the controls facing up"
Plus it "should be carried upright" but "if carried horizontally the leg must be lower than the power head"

So what's all that about then.....!

To prevent the possibility of water in the leg running into the powerhead - which is a potential problem with all outboards

Plenty of them around secondhand anyway, someone took ages to sell one here a while ago (was very cheap too).

Absolutely, even a few drops of salt water running up the exhaust into the cylinder to sit for a few weeks would not be good !

Yes, but no matter how vigorously it's denied, I suspect the root cause of that was the lack of serial number sticker.

I'm not saying it was dodgy before anyone makes assumptions. I'm simply saying that if the serial number was present the number of phone calls would probably have been a lot higher.

Your right. I had secured it within an hour of being available subject to... The lack of serial number prevented the sale. Like you I was not concerned by its legitimacy as I had bought from the chap before, it was just useless to me without any serial detail even just a core plug worst case! Shame.

I've just sold a 2006 black model for 895. Nice motors

On the why no light 4 strokes question I think you need to bear in mind that one of the advantages of 2 stroke for the boat in the boot and yacht tender markets is that 2 strokes aren't sensitive to which way you lie them down etc. Simply being light might not be enough.

Current 4/5/6 yamaha 4 strokes can be stored on any side - big "benefit" in their advertising.
