Buying a Used Outboard Motor
Buying a used outboard motor can be great way to save a lot of money and get a great motor in the process.
You will first want to enquire if the motor has ever been run aground or had the propeller shaft bent. Replacing a propeller shaft can be expensive.
Look for any apparent leaks of fluids. Leaking fluids can mean bad seals which might require costly repairs.
A great way to buy a used outboard motor is in an action environment. Not only do you get a large selection to choose from, but you can also keep your bids strictly to what your budget permits.
Outboard motor owners, who list their motors for auction, have many different reasons for doing so. A lot of times, they have bought a new motor and no longer need the motor they have so they want to get rid of it. Many of the used outboard motors listed for sale have plenty of life left in them.
