it says it's perfect, so it's gotta be - that's the rule. Usually I get a statement from the seller listing any faults. As for location, must be worth travelling almost anywhere in the UK - except Scottish Isles - for such a good bargain. Nothing against Scottish Islands, just time and cost!

(Just noticed - free shipping!)

According to the seller, "The engine will come with prop ,control box ,cables and smart gauges"

Now this has to be a bargain £3550.00 and 39 mins to go!!!!!

I don't think so, surely only Honda are foolish enough to do such a stupid thing as a 5 year warranty!

FRAUD

So an interesting day checking out our new opti and wondering how fast a boat will go with that sort of power. Quick e mail to the seller to say hi and where are you etc. Saw an option on e bay to call by automatic e mail details of the seller, so used that too.

Great he lives on Oakland in Cambridgeshire, phone number looks a little odd, its an American style number. Quick check with www.streetmap.co.uk and, well there is no Oakland in Cambs.

Not to worry I am sure sure the seller can explain all this. He e mailed me back and recommended an escrow account to use,
http://www.integral-escrow.net/index.php that will be safe then. Just check its URL address with: http://centralops.net/co/ how odd, the company has just been registered last month and has a US address but the web site says it is in Dion, France, hmm.

Oh and a thank you to the other two buyers who e mailed me warning of a possible scam. Just composing a letter to e bay now, oh and then I will be inviting some of the USAs nicest porn sites to send examples of there wares to the sellers e mail address. That should keep him busy for a while and probably far more suitable for his sort of life style.

Shame, but at least no one got caught,

Pete
