Looks like I'll have to pay the extra and go to someone like BH for an engine as my time is taken up with work, 6 day old baby and the other 6 kids.
Any other outboard sellers near to the northwest?

Steady on JSP - you don't need a motor yet. Keep an eye out for something over the next couple of months. You probably won't be using the boat before March in any case.

It looks like the project of fixing up the boat up could take you some time, surely whilst that part of the project is going on you can keep one eye open for a good deal.

I really wouldn't go spending over the odds at BH if I were you, his prices are just ridiculous!

Keep scanning B&O, ebay and your local free ads paper and something will come up

How about this one?

Any of you chaps on the south coast prepared to go take a looksee for him?

If it's decent you could always ask them to stick it on a pallet...

And I need this Rib done as it will be my bolt hole! That's why I promised myself I wouldn't take a project on. (Also promised meself no more than 3 kids!)

The 50 Yam or the 55 Soozook will be just the job then.
Tough decision - depends how much importance you put on PTT & E/S (and the 300 price difference)

Right don't shout, 50HP Evinrude 4 stroke 1900. I know to heavy but it looks and sounds like a good example on paper. It would be a case of cutting a hole in the bottom of the hull to see where I'm going wouldn't it?
