Bargain SIB and Mariner engine - be quick

Another heads up for a *very* cheap package on an eBay BIN - just listed in the last hour so be quick fellow Ribnetters!

Honwave 2.8 + Mariner 8hp at 700 - listed as a longshaft but doesn't look it and the SIB would need a short shaft.

mariner eight 2 stroke long shaft, and honwave dinghy 2.8 m | eBay

Obviously buyer beware, pay cash on collection, don't agree to a Paypal deposit and all that as FB is not huge...

Sounds like it needs someone in the business to buy it, split it and marry the two bits to something more appropriate?

Now, who...

Same here Peter - otherwise I would have bought it, split it and pocketed the likely 400 - 500 profit!

Another good spot Max. Looks like a short motor to me too. Would just comment I think that model of Mariner 8 is where the 8/9.9/15 are the same weight so you might as well just buy a 15.

Wont get a 15 for that money and not with a boat thrown in ....

It is essentially a free boat at that price.

No of course not but I wouldn't carry a 15hp weight about for 8hp performance.

I'm going by the description of the seller who describes it as a long shaft. If he didn't know the shaft length I'd not buy it as I wouldn't trust he knew the oil mix either
