hi folks i wish id seen this forums earlier i bought a 1991 yamha 50hp outbard of this guy trading on ebay as ukoutbards, for my first boat so i wasnt too clued up on prices and ended up paying 1000 for it, which he said would be totally complete inc remote / cables etc as all i had was basic boat shell. After a month of emails and non answered calls the engine eventually arrived , my workmate next door says its older than he advertised, no cables and minor bits missing. so its almost august and ive still not got it going, the prop he put on it is not the right one so ive to get another now, its just all been a huge financial disater enough to put me off boating before ive even taken it up.

tonight i went on ebay to give him bad feedback and the timelines expired, the feedback rating next to his name is private and he has nothing for sale so id imagine he has started a new name. why cant ebay ban pricks like this from starting new accounts? if I find his new one ill buy everything and leave bad feedback without payment.

if anyones intersetd the mobile number i ONCE got him on is 07770459625

Seems a bit ambitious on the pricing, you can buy a new 80hp 4 stroke merc for not much more than his starting price!

Dan the dick Cooper strikes again

Having spent a lot of time reading all about DannyBoy's activities I feel like a total fanny to have fallen for this.
I parted company with 220 for a mariner 60hp gearbox and prop. No gearbox arrived and after admitting he still had the box 2 weeks later (the couriers apparently decided to bring it back to Danny) no refund either!
Paypal found in my favour with the dispute but Dannyboy had emptied the sweety jar. Paypal will not refund if there is nothing in his paypal account/s with which to make the refund.

A decent fellow at "outboardspares unlimited" pointed me in the direction of this forum.

There is also a new ebay shop called outboardmotorunits, ebay item 180331717463 could Dannyboy be back?
I'm up in Scotland and the small claims is awkward with Scots Vs English law. Anyone know of an easy way around this? I'd love to go visit him but I'd spend 220 on fuel far less my time although I'm sure it would be VERY satisfying.
