2nd hand outboards are never worth what people think they are! For it to work, both the Buyer and the Seller have to land in the sweet spot where they are both happy - or at least can live with the outcome.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

When I stick the bow into a wave/swell, they turn down a lot of water and help to lift the bow You intend to cro...
