Well it came with the boat when we bought it but ran really well, however, too big for KClass. Here's the boat it came off after the re-fit...

only paid 500 for boat, trailer & engine off e-bay, must admit though the starter was a little dodgy but could still pull start it. The guy who bought it sorted the starter and is well chuffed with the motor so all in all they're a good little motor & with that multi-pin plug you can remove it quickly for winterizing too.

Gav, get the exhaust chest "hogged out" and stick it on a 25 foot gill bracket, and have a 1.5 amp alternator fitted, stick it on a powerlift with 10 foot rise/fall. she'd be a world beater mate! (Oh, and a few bling bits n bobs + a fury dice)

It won't handle worth a shit, will be slower and less reliable than a stock one, but what the heck!
