honwave or seapro

Max,
How is that a bargain? A brand new Honwave T32 is 880 and selling on a post 2006 two stroke for private use is always going to be risky.

I never said it was a "bargain". 2000 would be a fairish if slightly lofty price, 1800 much better and 1600 what I would pay!

If you can get hold of Tohatsu 9.8's of that age and in that condition you will sell them within a week every single time.

9.8 2 stroke

The 9.8 2 stroke is year 2012 with less than 1 hour TOTAL run time a new engine like this from the Channel Islands 1550 + vat = 1860 + 880 = 2740.00

Engine weight is 26kg most likely the best SIB engine on the market

OK, but do take some time to think about the options and advice thus far, Paddlers offer is a great one. Blooming handy to have a couple of young lads to help with a SIB too but I'd really inspect an HP floor (Zodiac, Honwave etc) SIB too.

One final thought, look at what type of [floor] SIB Glow has moved to now...

Callum,
In no way did I wish to spoil your for sale item. However, your ad was recommended as a good deal to a new-ish member. I merely pointed out the possible pitfalls of purchasing a post 2006 two stroke for private use.

No need to praise the virtues of the Tohatsu 9.8 to me as I already have a 2006 one.

Is there a risk to the buyer?

No, but the buyer may one day become the seller.
Apart from resale values, any future insurance claim may also be affected.
If it's a bargain and worth the risk, that's fine, but if you're paying a premium price.....

My understanding (which may be wrong!) is that only the first person who puts in "on the (open) market" is being "naughty".

A look at pre-2006 2 stroke prices suggest that the benefits of 2-strokes attract a premium at this end of the market. I doubt there are a shortage of people who would see a newer one as a negative.

interesting speculation - I guess some insurers will do anything to weedle out of a claim, but if you tell them in advance what you have it would be hard to do so.

I think you are right to highlight that this is an unusual situation. However I suspect these engines do attract a bit of a premium because not everyone is as worried as you.

I paid a premium price for a mint 2006 one last year. I would also not be worried about buying a cheeky newish used one, or even a cheekier new one from the Channel Islands. But then I am also aware it's bending the rules and accept any future pitfalls.
