I've been looking at one of these, I've sent the seller a message to see if it's still for sale.

Lightning, look up "Mainbrayce" in the channel Isles. (Search "Mainbrayce" they are RIBnet members) They sell Tohatsu 2 strokes.

Have a word with them, you may find something there!

I'm in touch with Mainbrayce and they do have these engines available. However the new cost is 1400 + VAT and carriage.
I'm not exactly well off at the moment! This used one is in Belfast. It looks like a short shaft.
The trouble is, getting the engine and paying for it from the private seller, I'd have to send him the money and hope that he delivered the goods.
Is there anybody in Northern Ireland who can help me out at all, maybe collect the engine?
Alternatively I'll buy a new one from Mainbrayce, but it'll have to wait until I have a bit more money.

I've ordered a new one from Mainbrayce.
They were great to deal with and gave me a further discount on the engine. I'll get a warranty and it's delivered to my door.

Keep looking longingly at the T9.8 2s...Are these 'new' engines illegal to sell, illegal to buy or legal to both sell and buy as they're old stock made before the cut off date?

Leapy, they are the old 2T motors. The EU banned their sale (new) from the end of 2006 to Leisure Users. They can still be purchased by commercial fishermen and for racing use. As such they will have reduced or no warranty. They are still produced and sold worldwide.

I have no personal issues with their use (having one) and can see no sense in allowing fishermen to use them but ban some guy who puts in 30hrs a year from having a new one.

However, I suspect that importing them from outside the EU (The Channel Islands for example) for leisure use involves some "fudging" of the regulations and as such, the details might best not be discussed on here. Happy to be wrong about this - apologies in advance if appropriate
