    How will the beggars profit from that? Anyone who buys an outboard from someone who doesn't have the original invoice or proof of ownership is surely pretty much as guilty as the original thieves.

    That's fine, each to their own - so long as when you grandchildren say 'Grandad/grandma, why has someone stolen my new bike/iphone/outboard/TV?' you answer 'well, that's because people like me prefer to pick up a bargain and sod the rest of you.'

    I have bought two outboards without paperwork. In each case the outboard was part of the inventory of a boat and was the means of propulsion for the tender. I subsequently sold both of these as I upgraded the engines and did so without paperwork.

    On the boats I purchased were other bits of kit, like GPS, lifejackets, etc. I didn't check that every bit of equipment was backed by a receipt - sometimes I actually trust people as they trust me when I sell on.

    As with most things in life - there is no black and white here.
