I just went through a rather distasteful, disreputable and downright disgusting experience with them on E-Bay. My reputation here and on E-Bay has been impeccable, so trust whom you care to. In this day and age, one must watch what one says, so I don't know if I should expand upon the details. My experience was with an outboard motor, but he currently and often has Whalers listed. I will never deal with him again and suggest that any friend of mine does not.

here is my experience in 2002 with a "New Motor, Less then 20 Hours"
John O posted 12-04-2002 09:37 PM ET (US) Profile for John O Did not buy motor.When I inspected it I noticed the words "cedar point" written on the vent plate with a sharpy marker.Had a guy from Marineengines.com find the name of original owner and made some calls. turns out boat was originally bought and used at The Cedar Point Yacht Club in Westport Ct. and the motor had seized. Some young kid working there did not realize that when a horn goes off something is wrong. Ran out of oil. I spoke with the GM of the club and he said to stay away from it. I asked him if he was confusing it with another motor and he said it was the only motor that they ever lost.At any rate motor was sold for parts for $300.00 to J.CAtalano &Sons in Greenwich CT. They in turn sold it to Middlesex Marine Repair in Portland CT who listed on E Bay as on "Excellant condition with less than 20 hours on it. Before I bid the owner of Middlesex Marine ,Pat Silvestro, told me he took it in from a dealer who got it on trade from a guy looking for more power. I promptly returned to Middlesex Marine and asked for my money back. The owner complied and said he would sell it in the spring for 4000 or 4500 and would warranty it as it ran fine. My bid of 2900 on Ebay was the only bid.
I do not know how the motor was repaired or by who, but it was not as advertised. Needless to say, I put time and effort into this purchase only to be disappointed.
