Hi lads just thought i would give you the heads-up, i dont own a rib just a small Orkney coast liner anyway i bought a Mercury 25hp from Cambridge outboard over the three weeks that it never arrived the excuses where unbelievable he had to service it, he was having staff holiday problems, he was then on holiday himself and at sea so only a female could get the messages. He has the same outboard on e-bay just now calling himself outboards 12 he also has a very nice web site when you Google it but dont be taken in i only got my money back after i told him i was coming down to Cambridge to do some damage to him. this is the page hope this helps other guys 25HP Mercury Long Shaft Electric Start 2-Stroke Outboard & Remotes, Tank & Line | eBay

For future reference, if you'd bought through Ebay/Paypal, you would've had multiple layers of protection.
Ebay protection is biased towards the buyer, to the point where honest sellers can be stiffed by unscrupulous buyers.

Ebay is a super safe place to buy online.

Re Moller it was paid for with pay pal but did not have the 3 month or however long it takes to get your money back from pay pal and only after i paid with pay pal i then found out that pay pal should never be used if paying over 100 as they have ways of getting out of it unlike a credit card who has to honour the payment

Notice I said Ebay/Paypal.

Ebay would've frozen the payment as soon as you'd opened a case against him and refunded you as soon as the case was found in your favour, less than 10 days usually.

Cheers Mollers just trying to help anyone who is thinking of buying from DAN COOPER. This happened just one week after a buried my 31 year old only son and i was not in the mood for games, one thing is a cert he would have been swimming in far less than ten days if he had not paid the money back

Just a heads up about Paypal again.

The refund policy DOES NOT cover you for motors or items that are not usually sent via post. Read and play by the rules you are 100% safe , dont and you will lose money at some point.

From ebay:

The programme is designed to protect purchases that are usually sent by post over 99% of listings on eBay. It doesn't include vehicles, real estate, businesses for sale, digital goods or services.
