If all that is Honda marine gear it’s not actually badly priced then at all.
I presume the trailer they’re supplying is bunked?
How do they propose to support the outboard, does it come with a transom saver attached ?

Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:

Yip apparently the weight of the outboard will be supported by the trailer not the transom.
From what he explained only the snipe bunk trailer have this from factory.
Unfortunately I have to wait two weeks I have my PB2 course this weekend and then going to Liverpool to part with the hard earned!

Looks a good set up, engine appears to be very clean, but it didn't say how old the boat or engine was, or how many hours it's done

Hi apparently the boat, outboard and trailer were purchased late 2012 and had very light use and stored in a dry garage. So no warranty but for the saving I will have it serviced straight away. Any thoughts?

Id want to know how many hrs the outboard has in it, deffo see it start and run from cold.

There’s a chap on Facebook selling a recent Honwave and Honda outboard, I’ve messaged him for you to see if it’s a T38ie or t40. I think it’s 2 yr old and comes with such wheels & trailer. £3k is his asking price

Hi Frankelsbikes and :welcome to the forum

Yikes, you and martin have been busy already :lol:

That eBay link T40 and motor looks clean, tidy and as the seller say's, it doesn't seem to have seen a lot of action :|
Best go and have a look in the 'flesh' as it'll tell you a story ;-) talk with the seller, ask plenty of questions ;-) and have him fire up the OB ;-)
If it don't add up or feel right (going on your 6th sense) then walk away IMO

All the very best with your outfit purchase :thumbsup

Good to have you aboard :D
:cheers
I walked through the door marked 'EXIT' and life is now good!
