Outboard Motor?

How much is a 5hp Mariner long shaft worth. Its two years old but has genuinely only been used for half an hour in total. Its absolutely mint and starts first time everytime?
Diz

Probably about 10. But I will give you 15 if the decals are good

I was offered a boat yesterday and it ticks all the boxes for me, it includes the engine above but I think that its way over priced.
Diz

The price of Boats over here are with the Fayrees as well. You tend to find the same adds week in week out. Generally, the mentality is 'I paid x sum, so its worth the same, but I will come down a fiver or so' They forget that when the purchase was made they paid for it in Punts 20 odd years ago.

A quick update. The guy with the boat rang me up yesterday and having been left to stew, he volunteered to drop the price of the completete outfit by 500. Now we might be getting somewhere.
