Outboard hire tiller control

Outboard hire 15hp tiller

Can any member point me in the direction of a hire company that will rent out tiller control outboards up to 15 hp

I have a 2 week holiday in Chichester harbour area booked and my 25hp Evinrude etec has a cracked exhaust megaphone and no spare part insight.

To save my holiday being a total boating disaster I am looking to hire a tiller motor for my Bombard C4. I am based in Merseyside.

Any help much appreciated

Andy

The only place I know is Boats2go, they hire inflatables and engines. But its not cheap, a 15hp for 2 weeks will be well over 500.

When do you need the engine ?

If you have cash then your cheapest option would be to buy a second hand 15hp then resell after trip. But you do need cash just sitting there.

Or a temporary repair with Chemical Metal or similar - it's not a stressed part is it?

Thanks all for the input. Saw the damaged megaphone today, it was beyond repair. Several large chunks bracken of and the unit in two pieces.

These a chance the new unit will arrive before the weekend so may get it back. Otherwise I have my Eye on a second hand 15 Mariner

Cheers Andy
