Just scored two outboards

I fixed a Volvo Penta outdrive for a guy in a liveaboard for his runabout and he had a 6 hp Evinrude that fell of the back of his boat a while back and he was going to chuck it, so I told him to throw it in my direction. Stripped it down and cleaned it up, put a new impeller in it while I was at it and it now powers my 15 foot KABOAT and the thing goes like a bat out of hell for a little motor like that. So I thought that the 4 hp compact Evinrude that I had as a loan from another person I did a couple of favors for can now go back to its owner. He told me to just keep it as he has no use or space for it. The compact is one of the rare old ones that fold up like a bike and stow real easy. Both of them are old and light 2 strokes. Nice to have a spare.
Total investment to get them both running..17.55 $ and some elbow grease. Should have put this in the low buck projects.
