Doesn't look like anybody on here has one?
I've been watching this one with interest. You have a good, but "too slow for you motor". You have a lousy review of a specific Selva motor. No-one on here has one, or indeed, much in the way of a Selva in any format.
I think there's a message in there somewhere.
Personally, I'd buy the wee Tohatsu 9.8 you have been offered and take a spare set of plugs and a spanner with you. Changing the plugs on a 9.8 takes a minute and can be done on the water. I've never had to do it in anger, but it's peace of mind.
