And why not, its happening to anything collectable, you find a rare motor in a shed and you are supposed to give it away.
So if someone finds a Marston in the shed, they should sell it cheap, as they don't or shouldn't know what its worth, because he or she is not a collector, and only collectors are allowed to make any money.
We have all seen crappy motors that you wouldn't look twice at going for silly money, do they sell, NO.
Is a Marston rare, not from the amount I have seen, it is a collectable motor, that makes it desirable and keeps up the price, I have seen rarer motors go for much much less only because its not desirable.
I go antique hunting, I find something interesting and look it up on the net, mainly for interest, but also for what its worth, so the general public is not allowed to do this.
Sorry Charles, you may have worked out I don't agree, I thought this site was about outboards, not shush
, we don't talk about them on here, that was a nice money earner for some.
I have never believed in the one rule for one scenario.
