I saw this a while ago and checked the serial number, it is registered in the states, so its going to cost alot of money to get it shipped over here.
The serial number is what the advert says though.

Seems a bit to cheap to be true!

1. Incorrect Picture
2. Do wetline even make ribs?
3. Yamaha have never made a 7hp outboard!
Have just asked seller a question. He says the advert should read 265 instead of 365. He also said the outboard is 7hp but quite old (I'v still never seen or heard of a 7hp yam tho).

However this contadicts his advert. If its a 265 then it wouldn't take the 20hp outboard. The picture shows quite a new 4/5hp yam, so this obviously isn't the boat.

I am going to shut up now, because it probably seems that I have become obsessed in picking faults in his advert.

OK, I was wrong,

One of Yamaha's first outboards was 7hp, but this was in 1960. Unlikely that many would still be running, and the ones that are would be quite valuable.

Still doesn't explain rest of ad!

After contacting the seller he sorted out his advert. He has put some better pictures on and has sorted out his description.

Unfortunatly its now out of my budget for a tender. But at least he sorted out his listing and should get a better price with the correct listing.

This has got to be a scam, as all of the postage and packaging has to be arranged by him.
