Yep - a 40 or 50 2-stroke on a SR4 will give you a very good day out on 2 x 25l cans of fuel (+ 1l of oil) Total cost 60

If you insist on going 4-stroke, to give you some guidance on value, this 1999 Soozookitrood 50 sold a couple of days ago for 1550

Yeah I got outbid on that motor by 25 quid!
Right looks like two stroke it is. But just before I drop the dead donkey is this no good? Claims to be the lightest 4 stroke plus it's new!

Looks too cheap, possible scam perhaps?

With the RRP close to 5k (clicky) I would say it's a little tooo good to be true.

Absolute bargain if it's genuine but tread carefully, it could be a scam


*edit; beat me to it Pete!

It's a scam - the text of the ad is full of yankisms - been cut from a yank website and pasted into B&O.
Leave well alone.

What's your budget for the outboard?

Thought I'd email them anyway and see what is said. They are a US company who export/import http://www.watersports24.co.cc/ You have to place your order through the site, delivery is 70 and takes 3-4 days to get to my address. Then get an invoice in 24 hours via email.
Normally you don't pay until you get an invoice? So if that is the case then it doesn't sound too bad. What d'ya think gents?

Downhilldai, budget is what it needs to be really (with in reason). Want the best motor I can get.

It's a scam to nick your 70. Don't go near it.

Is this it?:

1995 50 Yam 2-stroke. Manual start, but looks clean & tidy, freshwater use, Isle of Skye 1295 - not cheap, but not expensive either.

That is a nice looking motor, shame it's pull start and manual trim
