Do you want something right or right now, listen to these guys they seriously know there stuff, I did the same as you are going to do, went in low end
Honda 2.4 outboard with trolley paid 280.00 just sold on eBay for 320 and kept the trolley
Honwave 2.4 air deck paid 400 sold for 360 after 2 years use
Currently upgrading sib
If you buy quality you seem to get near your money back
Just be patient and a deal will come
Also look for sibs with transom wheels, seat bags etc, these little extras cost a fortune
Good hunting
Mick

Just an update for those interested. The maiden voyage went well on a local waterway a small hicup at the beginning where I tilted my engine back and petrol started dripping in to my boat. Took me an age to start it after that but as soon as I did it went a lot better than I thaught with 3 adults and a child a good day for all.
