Upgrade time...

Iíve spotted a couple of bigger engines with PTT available from reputable sources (one local, one further away) that would make a nice upgrade to my wee tub.

So Iím trying to gauge what the likely resale price is for my 2005, Yamaha two-stroke long shaft with remotes and electric start. Generally in good shape but the control box is a little scruffy looking and there is some paintwork scrapes on the skeg and very minor damage to the prop.

Anyone looking for something like that or got a feeling on value?

There was a 2004 short manual advertised at £1250 on eBay a while back would have thought it would be sort after by the small rib guys and glassfiber fishing boats.

Thanks Jeff - thatís the sort of range I was hoping to hear - just wondering if I am being too optimistic...

Iíll most likely buy one of the 30HP first. Both have said they will consider the 20 for trade in but I am gauging market value (I realise tradein will not be so good). 50% more power and PTT should make the tub more fun when the whole family and a load of kit are weighing it down!
