Thanks Humper,
I may well just take you up on that offer mate! I emailed Liverpool powerboats last night but haven't heard back from them yet. I'll give them a call later.

After much thought I'm going to go for a 2 stroke. Where do you all buy your 2 stroke oil from?
I'm also trying to find prices on a courier to bring a motor from down south, but I'm not getting very far with that either. Any recommendations?

That suzuki 55hp really pulls my chain.

Something like this will do the job, available in most chandlers for around a fiver and should last you for around 2x 25l tankfulls at 50:1

oh and an SR4 will be fast as fek with a 55hp stroker!!

Try Palletline for moving the motor. They show 62.28 for moving a pallet from Portsmouth (po1) to Southport on economy service and 68 next day delivery via online quote.

Far cheaper buying it in 4 litre containers. The 1 litre bottle is handy to keep aboard though-or even a half litre coke bottle full as it means no measuring for a 25 litre container.

I got a good deal on a dealer rebuilt 90 st Yammy from the Glasgow dealer a couple of years ago and got it shipped the Scillies so keep your options open and look around. Distance is not a factor.

Where do you buy yours from then Matt?

I've only found it saves about a pound to buy the 4l container (example)


I like the tip about the coke bottle

The only time I've bought it a 1 litre bottle it was 7 quid-and 19 quid at the time for a 4l bottle. Not really looked at the price since then. I tend to use 2 litres a time so it's not worth it for me.
