Another couple of examples of Holy Grail type engines that dont cost a fortune..on gumtree in the past couple of days

Tohatsu 9.8 two stroke .. 2005.. although..beware .. it is a long shaft 550

https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kaya...ine/1133249818

Yamaha 9.9 older two stroke engine short shaft but still looks ok ? 450

https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kaya...ine/1132880034

I obviously cant guarantee any of these engines ..they are all just gumtree adverts..but Im listing to show these are not one off prices. Only way I personally would spend Holy Grail prices was if I wanted the security of a dealers second hand warranty

The Tohatsu 15hp I mentioned earlier is listed again today too..price reduced to 370. Again..Im only demonstrating some prices ..certainly not selling or recommending. Best time of the year for a buyer though

You are right of course there are some brilliant bargains in the older engines. My current 15hp is a "holy grail" type but in truth I've had amazing service from older much less valuable ones.

For several years until we sold the outfit this old model (1985 or so) Mariner 20hp powered our 12ft Bonwitco fast fishing boat about the West coat on holidays with only oars for backup (only ever needed for rowing into shallows). Here seen powering away from Loch Caolisport towards the sound of Jura.

It was as smooth, reliable and easy to start as any newer engine we've
owned.

That's a superb project for someone and very cheap when you consider what the commissioned cost was!

Bombard Aerotec 380 bag

That's got to be a must for someone with a 380 on this forum.

Good spot - as the ad says will fit any other similar SIB too.

Have to say these are really good bags and better than most of their type.

Can't tell from the (terrible) pics if like many this Avon 'RIB' is really a SIB but looks a hoot for the money if it stays cheap:
