 Handy when you have a little

 Handy when you have a little bit of mechanical knowledge. I recall when it cost $30 odd dollars to service a car and laughed at the mechanic when he said in the next 10 years it will cost $300 to service these new cars. 

Top catch of squid.

 Took a boat in for the motor

 Took a boat in for the motor services, 60 evenrude. Decided to go for a yammy 4 stroke, bought outright, no trade picked up the boat, and asked where is the old motor, I have sold it.  Bloke says he didn't think I wanted it anymore, he stripped it for parts,  he had only sold the starter motor, so I got the outboard back without the starter. I had sold it for 1800 dollars, but had to get a new starter motor.

What do you think a starter motor for a sixty hp evenrude cost? 

600 dollars. Couldn't get a second hand unit.

 I'd be making the mechanic pay for it who just thinks he can start stripping your outboard without asking you
