I'm not sure that's him. Anyone fancy ringing him and finding out?


I noticed he's been buying Mercruiser logo'd overalls on his norfolkboatsandoutboards account though. I wonder if he's trying to pass himself off as something he's not?

I've had the serial numbers checked with barras, by my local mariner dealer and by turbodiesel. Nothing was flagged up as stolen. I have checked stolen boats on here and B&O. I think he got it cheap, and tricked me with the advert.

The outboard was sold to me as a 'as new' 2000 6hp.

Its actually a 1994 15hp, with a reasonable powerhead, and tatty lower section.

I don't have any pictures but its got a 6hp cowling (from a 2000 model), the lower part has been repainted. And one of the clamp screws is bent. Serial Number is 09795318. If anyone knows anything let me know.

Edit: its a mercury made mariner, not the yamaha (if that helps).

You told me you would work it over the weekend and despatch it on Monday for delivery on Tuesday. It's now Thursday and no sign of the outboard or any contact from you informing me of any problem. As you know this matter has been running for several months and my patience does not run indefinately.
If your still waiting for anything try contacting him through:

I can't believe they've let him have a seller account.

I think I might ring the BBC seeing as they were reporting how ebay was trying to reduce the amount of fraud...

I've reported him again-to both Ebay and Boatsandoutboards.

Can a few others do the same please? We need to shut this clown down.

I've been contacted by Ebay user boatsandoutboards4sale and I'd like to point out that this guy has NOTHING to do with Dan Cooper.

Check out his feedback on his ebay account. The only way he is getting a good rating is by buying stuff. Won't be long before he sells it back again.

Definately one ebayer to avoid dispite people leaving feedback like:

"A real credit to Ebay! This is what Ebay is all about! Great service & goods! ++"

Looking closer about 8 feedback scores came from two sellers.
