I was hoping I'd get your approval it sure screwed up my day, lol. I did look for an older vintage model so why don't you send me a vintage one? I can see your point of view.Well I held my tongue at first, but since I didn't start it, I'll go ahead and state the obvious. That motor looks like crap on that boat. For a lot less money you could have picked up a vintage motor and had a snazzy looking rig. Just my opinion, but some things just don't go together. Your money though and I can't see it from my house, so carry on.
I didn't have the cash it would take apparently you didn't read that part. To get an old motor running you do know how much a boat mechanic costs and this starts easy enough for me.
Far as a lot less money that's darn funny.
