Hi Matt,

I'm Massimo, leaving and sailing on Arran. I'm interested in this outboard, I have a Leisure 17 with a 4 HP Mercury that is giving me now headaches. I can not rely on it anymore, it doesn't always jump. I know that my dingy outboard 2 HP 2 stroke old Susuki never gave up and so believe that the 2 strokes are more reliable and less complicated.
How old is it about and what about its working condition ?

As we all experience It's impossible to travel (...on the Ferry) these days with out good reason. Is there any way you could keep it for me until things get better? Hopefully soon.
I'm thinking maybe of a partial / pre payment of say £100 to your bank account you would refund me if we do not come to an agreement on collection I would pay the rest cash that day. I might also buy the tank as mentioned on Gumtree ?

I understand it would commit yourself, I would have come straight away if I it would have been possible.

Looking forward to hear from you

Cheers

Massimo

Hi Massimmo,

The engine is in good condition and its been well looked after. Not exactly sure of the age, but I think its mid 1980s. The chap I got it from said it had only been used as a stand-by engine on a yacht in Loch Lomond (which is fresh water).

I'd be happy to hold it for you until such times as you can collect it. Yes, I'd need a non-refundable deposit of £100 - paid by paypal (email address for that is craigens66@yahoo.co.uk ).

If you want the tank as well, that would be available at an extra £30 and that is for the tank (which has a fuel gauge) and connecting hose.

Cheers
Matt

Hi Matt,

could you please Photograph or send me the Model Number on the plate?
And I don't understand why "Non refundable" Deposit?
What if we do not agree?

I need these two informations before I make up my mind.

Thanks

Massimo

Massimo,

Photos attached. One photo shows the serial number plate which i think refers to 5hp, but the other photo shows the power head is marked as 6hp.
The non refundable deposit is required to ensure your commitment to buy. I have had many time wasters and others not showing up. I'm also be needing to hold onto it for possibly a few months for you.
I hope you can understand my situation.

Cheers matt
