I am looking to buy a YSE 8 Yanmar engine for a Couta boat I am doing up in Metung, Victoria.
Please contact me if you can help. Sharon Chandler 0419 597 647
I have a Heron dinghy that my dad and I spent many happy hours in, that needs a new home since dad passed on.
Yes, it does look a little tired, and needs a new centreboard case, side decks, and at least, repairs to her bottom, but overall is a worthwhile project.
It comes with sails, fittings, and two sets of masts and spars, and is currently stored in Ringwood, Victoria.
The trailer rego has lapsed, and one of the cross braces needs tacking back on, but the main drawbar seems sound.
Please give me a call if you are interested. I would be sorry to see her become part of a Guy Fawkes bonfire.

Circa 1938 ex Navy sail training dinghy of 12ft, converted to a motor boat and is now fitted with a “Hall” single cylinder 2 stroke motor of 3HP. The motor dates from 1962 and is an updated model with roller bearings instead of plain bearings and has an alloy crankcase.
Engine has a sealed fresh water cooling system, and has an electric starter added.
Boat is a batten seam carvel construction and has just been renovated with a full repaint.
Has a canvas sun awning.
On an excellent trailer, which is currently registered in NSW. If sold to a non-NSW resident it will be sold unregistered as the rego cannot be transferred interstate. The boat is unregistered as it is not required in NSW for boats of this power and speed.
Asking price is $6,000 and offers will be considered.
Call David on 0414442518 or email email@example.com. More pictures and video of engine running are available.
This is a unique attractive boat; ideal for fishing and pleasant afternoons on lakes and rivers, and is in excellent condition.
Located in Bendigo, Victoria.
For sale at $21,000.
For more information regarding this boat, contact Haydn Mathers on 0408 511 742.
The motor was purchased in 1987 and has been under the bench for that time. It has Rolco exhaust manifolds with risers and a Rolco bell housing. It has Savage heat exchangers for engine and oil cooling. The engine was stripped when bought but was found to be in excellent condition and was re-assembled.
I am asking $250.00 which essentially is for the never been used heat exchangers.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
