If it really is NOS then it's a fair deal - a nice 2006 used one goes for 1200 ish anyway.

But just call them up and pay cash on collection (including 150 or so on credit card for protection) - they must surely be open to do a deal 'outside' ebay as combined fees will lose them 150 on a BIN anyway??

I think I'll go with the gumtree option. It's a bit more expensive but someone else on here recommended him and I've been a put off by the multiple ebay ID's that was mentioned

Or you could buy my low hours 9.8 Tohatsu 2 stroke on a nice Avon 311 Rib, all sitting on a good combi trailer for 1600 pounds.

I'd consider that Duggie... sell the boat and trailer and probably end up with a good value outboard??

Guys, that does sound like a bargain. But I've committed to picking up the one from Gumtree. I'm getting it on Wednesday - 1,350 which I am happy with

Ray I don't think you'll have any bother shifting yours !

Thanks

Hi folks. Thanks for all the advice on this. I am now the proud owner of a new tohatsu 9.8hp 2 stroke. The chap I bought it from was a great guy to deal with and he has more to sell. Personally I think it's a bargain when you see what some of the old 2 strokes go for. It was brand new in box.
