What can you do eh? Annoyed me that I offered to put a reserve on it and he replied ''don't worry about that'' and failed to even give me a call or email me when it had sold.

Just called the guy about the 50hp merc peter suggested.

It's 1998, comes with remotes. In good but not excellent condition.

All ready to go serviced and with a 3 month warranty.

Wants £1300. Yay or Nay?

yes includes 3 month warranty. Will have to check about tacho, not sure if that is included.

Will see if he can do a compression test as well.

Bit of a waste of time


went all the way down there.

When I arrived they had the bloody leg off changing the impeller

Corrosion on it left right and center, he would have known full well but didn't bother telling me even though he knew I was travelling 2 hours to get there.

Some of the wiring loom had melted

Search goes on.....
