a detachable drawbar would also hinder the theft of the trailer

Not necessarily bilge my engine is 14 years old (1992) and runs very well. The key is how much use it has had. My boat was used as a tender to a very large yacht and lived on the foredeck. The engine probably hadnt done much more that 4 knots! Although the engine graphics look a little dated the engine is actuallly in showroom condtion because it was kept covered up. And it will piss all over the equivalant brand new 4 stroke

Nicely put Ads and again i'm finding i have to agree with Rogue on the draw bar thing

I understand all to well the older engine thing as i've spent the last 18 months throwing handfulls of cash at my now knackered 15 year old Evinrude engine, i've now done what i should have done 17 months ago and bought a new engine.

RIP Evinrude 50HP 2 stroke

For sale....... 1 Evinrude 50HP 2 stroke outboard........would make a perfect anchor !! one careful owner
