Outboard motor for dingy
Sailinfool raises a good point - Parts availability.
I found the Village Dumps, in the Bahamas (Exumas) to be full of older OMC (Johnson/Evinrude) engines, from which I was able to scrounge many useful parts.
The Bahamians have started to favour Yamaha outboards, so expect that they will soon be showing up in the dumps.
Anyone have any similar experience elsewhere?
