Getting an engine from Scotland to Southampton

Hi All,

I might be needing to get a 115hp 2 stroke Yamaha from Scotland (Gourock) to Southampton.

I am trying to find out the rough weight of the engine - don't know if anybody knows this offhand, and also any ideas who to use to bring it down here, and rough costs? I don't think I can drive to scotland as a time constraint, so would prefer if funds stretch to pay someone to do it for me. Who do people suggest for shipping outboards?

If anybody regularly does that trip, or is doing it in the near future and would like some help with petrol, please get in touch!

Cheers,

Jimbo

He's only bringing it from Scotland, not Spain, so it probably won't have the extra 9 ounces stashed under the cowl!

Can you get it put onto a pallet? That would probably be the cheapest option. PostVan www.postvan.com will do it for just over 100 plus VAT, but you might find a cheaper service elsewhere.

Jimbo,
Try Palletline or send an e-mail to the Road Haulage Assoc. they will contact members to see if anyone can backload it. A google search will give www address.

Cheers.

An accurate figure, that is. Heavy to lift, this engine will be. With the gArfish, strong, the force is. Fraught with danger and financial ruin this task shall be.

Reccomend to Jimbo he shops around, I do. Try to levitate the engine, I have. Weak, are my powers now. Many men and a van, Jimbo will need.

Is the garfish's figure on engine weight even close? Postvan do 2 services, up to 150kg, and up to 1200kg.

Should be around 158 but will tell you exactly on the build plate on the saddle.
