We purchased this motor new in Barcelona in '08 along with a new 2.9 inflatable as a tender for our yacht. The motor has never started well, sometimes stops for no reason but usually restarts again, has minor corrosion, the gear shift rod in the leg was rubbing on the output shaft and broke, the cutout switch has totally fallen apart and makes stopping difficult,just to mention a few faults. The motor no longer goes despite many efforts. This has all happened within a fuel consumption of less than 30 litres. I have learnt it is still under warranty so there may be a chance yet.
