    5HP Mercury 2 stroke

    Greetings fellow salty dogs, well I've decided to sell my (as new) Merc 5HP stroke. I bought it a few years ago to go on my 12 foot tinny but then my mate who traded me the dingy wanted it back. So no boat to put it on now, and it's too small to be used as an auxiliary to come over the bar on my 5.2m boat so it's off to a new home. It has done about 2hours running from new and I just fired it up today after sitting for a couple of years and it went on first pull of the cord.
    It comes with a 10L tote tank which has not been used since I just ran it on the internal tank for the brief blat up and down the river.

    Pick up only, although I'm happy to delivery in the Manawatu/Horowhenua area.
    I am looking for $1500 ono

    Awesome outboard. Basically is a rebadged Tohatsu...so quite likely it will outlast us all

    It's a bit of a shame but I'm deliberately not collecting boats, nothing for it to go on now. And I bought my "big" boat a few months after buying the motor so didn't really have a need to launch the 12 foot tinny

    $1200, that's 1K off the new price, and as mentioned it's done 1 tank of gas which is about 2hrs running. Still has factory grease on the grease points.

    Nice, should get that bench up on the plain
    If it doesn't sell I'll most likely get a little tinny to put it on to set a net and the like
