    I bought it with all those new parts installed. Also got an extra lower unit, new gas tank full of gas and extra cowl and cover. I love my Shamrocks but my little boats, 14 and 16 get used alot.

    Good buy and lots lighter than today's 4 stroke 15's. I had one about the same vintage for many years for my dinghy on my 38. My son was a bit hard on it, ran over a sea otter which dunked it it the drink, Dried it out, lubed it up and ran for many more years, until he somehow seized it up one day. Pulled it apart, new piston, rings, honed out the cylinder and ran fine again. Like a Timex watch, took a licking and kept on ticking

    And it will probably last longer than most new ones today now that you have it in good running order.

    Thanks Chris but I just can't bring myself to spend that much on a small outboard. I have bought and sold Shamrocks for less. Going through a pile the other day, I came across an electric trolling motor. Think I'll give that a try. Any Ideas on the best battery or batteries ?

    Chris, I called, left message. 10 hours from here but maybe doable if I stop for some fishing and hunting in Charlotte. Hoping to find something closer. The thing about the engines in the middle states, fresh water.
    Just got a response, SOLD.

    My research says Hangkai are junk. Paint peels after a few months.

    Never heard of it, but then I do live a sheltered life... Parts availability and service might be an issue. Water pump comes to mind.

    Tiller, 15 - 30 hp. New or used. Good used would be my preference. Any length. Prefer 2 stroke.
