I would agree if you are not familiar with outboards then you could be buying problems , however if you can get help in buying then there is always a good price boat around and there seem to be lots of SR4,s going cheap.
There seems to be plenty of help available on this forum.
I paid £1200 for mine with trailer 50 Evinrude EPTT never missed a beat , boat was incredible fun, used it for a long while and it is now spending its life as a club rescue boat for a coastal sailing club.
At the end of the day any engine can go pop if not overlooked properly and serviced before going out to play.
