Hello,Now thats relative to where you are.i would say troon is in the back and beyond .No offence intended. The outboard was /is 1993 with power trim and tilt.The tubes were done by ribshop have the receipt.Need a good clean.the console is orignal with an inboard s/steel tank.New battery last year.outboard runs good and quiet.The floor needs repainting.The trailer is userble but nothing fantastic.The hull has quite a few marks on .I would say its a good buy.I spoke to the owner late last night and bid just before i said its now sold.i would say the boat was as advertised

Looks like a good buy then.

The shape on the foor I would think was a molding to stop an anchor from sliding all over the place. Perhaps thats what the straps are for?

nah, the straps are to keep the tubes in place if stuffed badly...

mine has the floor moulding too, seems to be standard on mod ones

If it's an MOD one, then I might suspect that these are reinforced areas to allow a lifting point to be fitted.

Wonder if it's a point to secure a gun to? Daft thought I know, but would be kinda cool if it was
