There isn't much of a choice at the present time. OS and Thunder Tiger are getting out of the outboard business and K&B is trying to get things going again. There are some people making aftermarket motors but the price is high for any of those. It's a tough time for outboarders now.

I now have 3 K&B's a Thunder Tiger, and O.S., thanks to "discovering" E-Bay 2 mos ago. Thunder Tgr was $42, ad said needed piston, sleeve, rod etc, but it turned out this eng was never run and disassembled, and put back together w/o connecting the con rod to the crank! Never paid more than $76 for a K&B, (all run) and the O.S. (never ran) was the pricyest at $114.00. So.... Anyone have some hulls?

Speaking of hulls -dont be missslead by the e-bay listings of dumas hulls or kits as rare, go to the dumas site , the subcatigory for boats is called specialy priced and you will find all the old hulls, example- dumad skadaddle for around 38$ and the e-bayer will have near that for reserve!! LOL
Do your reserch befor you buy e-bay then you can laff at the popr sap that paid too much.

Drydok-- you s.o.b. I thats all i neaded to hear , that the motor I was going to bid you out of was a deal. :(
No realy I'm glad to hear that you have had good luck on e-bay too, I have a 3.5 o.b. and 2 7.5 i.b. just aquired a jet drive for one.
