I didn't even discuss that, it was a point in his ad I just didn't believe; it's a common belief though, because of the history in their shift from using the 8hp for the 9.9, to using a downgraded 15 for the 9.9. It has more ccs than the old version... so no point in me discussing it when I believe it to be rubbish

Actually, whilst they are not normal Bombard fitment, I believe they could well have been done by the factory... maybe it was a returned slightly soiled boat they patched to sell on looking good; maybe it's an after market fitment; maybe it was done by Barnet Marine; either way they look perfect and like a professional job to me. So not an issue for me, I would expect a patch or two on that age boat, and they are the only two I have found.

Couldn't agree more, but I think it was made in 2003, so maybe just about 13 year old, so 5 years newer than my grey one.
