I agree 69cmw ...these prices are very over inflated..I got my Quicksilver 4.3 + 25hp Mariner two stroke and trailer for that price..engine and boat pristine condition and 2005 made for both.

I also bought a pair of trem wheels for £50..just as well they were cheap as I don’t use them

Nothing to do with me..but is this not one of those Holy grail outboards for £400 ? Its only come on line in the last hour so if anyone wants to pay a realistic price ..be quick .. Check things out though as it could be a scam..but if you are in Fort William area and want one..go see it..that is how you get bargains.

Thank god I live in the north where prices are sensible (Sorry Max)

Hi Fenlander ..these are mine in the photo. I put the wheels on my trailes..but £25 should get me a set of Screwfix barrow wheels to put on it ? and I will put these back on the Trem stands..if you are interested.

I certainly wont charge you southern prices.. I will need to hunt out the stainless buttons ..that fit on the transom.. ..you will know the bits I mean .. but Im sure they are in my shed..I will look after dinner. If they are suitable for you..and you can arrange a courier .. Im certain we can agree on a very fair price. If we agree ..I will even let you have them before you pay me.. I canít be fairer than that

Like anything at the end of the day the market dictates the price - remember of course that the classified eBay (or wherever) price is just the advertised price, not the final price.

However, list on an Aerotec is £2200 or whatever so less than half that is a fair price for one say up to five or six years old secondhand in good used condtion, sure you can pay a lot less like Fenlander and myself have done for used examples by keeping your eyes open or being in the right place at the right time but that is the whole point of this particular topic.

Someone can always flag up a killer bargain but fact remains the going rate for a late, clean, well looked after 2 stroke Tohatsu 9.8 or Merc/Mariner/Yam/Suz etc 15 is £1000 to £1200. So, an outfit with one of those and an Aerotec + wheels (retailing at £200+) for £1800/£1900 *is* a good deal.

Mad Max .. You certainly have crooks down there.. with floppy wallets

Fenlander..

They have a slight rake in them..so here is a side on..they were supposed to be for the heavy quicksilver..but I cant lift the front of my boat now..with my mods to the SIB..its too heavy..so I didnít even try fitting the wheels

The kink is OK... when mounted it puts the wheels under the transom for best balance rather than behind it.

Gurnard as I don't know how to attach an image to a PM here is one where you can see the grey plastic backing "shims" behind the Trem brackets.

I paid £1250 for a new Aerotec in 2011 from a dealer down south, so I still reckon £1200 for a 14 year old Aerotec is a rip off

This whole thing is going a bit off-topic now but as I say the price advertised is not the price paid in most cases and agreed for a 14 yr old £1000 to £1200 is too much but as noted in my post you quoted I was referring to one much younger than that.
