    ^^^ Looks like most everything is on backorder.

    I’ve bought two outboards from them, and referred 4 more guys to them. All were really pleased. Mine arrived a day & a half after I placed the order. Was the cheapest place around. One problem today is that ALL dealers are back ordered on outboards. Last friend that ordered from them said they told him they had a shipment of 100 outboards arrive, which were all sold in less than 3 hours! If I ever need another small outboard, they’ll be the first people I’ll call.

    I was in a boat dealer yesterday. I needed a part that I was pretty sure they would have in stock.

    unfortunately they didn’t, but said they could order it.
    I said sure. He ordered it, and got expected delivery date……… July 17th.

    there is normally 15-25 motors in the “showroom”. There was not a one.
    I asked about repowering my Yamaha motor, and another guy laughed. ( turned out he was the owner).

    He basically said exactly what that article said.
    Said they could not get individual motors.
    Only way to get a motor was as a complete boat package.

    He further stated, that unless a boat was presold, ( paid for) they could not get any “display” boats.

    In Aug 2020 I bought a 25 Tohatsu from Defender Marine, all online. Had it delivered to my local freight dock for an included price a few hundred dollars than my “local” dealer 60 miles away. I was pleased.
