The Yam 20 ss plan is coming together. Collected a late 70's (roughly) Yam 20 ss in the week. It was described as "BEEN STOOD IN GARAGE FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS. WAS RUNNING WELL WHEN TAKEN OFF BOAT AND REPLACED WITH A BIGGER MOTOR. WILL PROBABLY NEED A SERVICE SO SOLD AS SPARES OR REPAIR"
Decided it was worth a punt for £200. After fixing some silly issues this morning, it is now up and running nicely. Needs the tiller arm sorting, a new thermostat, new impellor, spark pigs, and a bit of re-wiring. But should be a running order 20 short shaft for less than £300 I hope. Then time for a play.
It's 42kg, so a bit easier to man-handle than a 25 as well.
