Yamaha 50hp - too good to be true?

What do you make of this?

Looks in great condition, could just be a CDI ignition problem. Still stinks to high-heaven. Got it from a bloke in Poole indeed!

Highly unlikely- 'Does not turn over' doesn't mean it won't start, it means it's seized!

Is fitted with a steering damper so there is a good chance it has come off a thundercat. My guess would be it has been flipped and had a swim. Still for the right money it might be worth stripping down for a rebuild
