I have a mate that is looking at a boat with a mariner 75 clamshell outboard on it. He has been told that it is a 1996 model did they still make a clamshell up to then.

No my brother had the 90 hp version (same engine different rating) - he bought his new in 1994 and it wasn't the clamshell - I don't think it had superceded the clamshell by very long though.

It's fairly typical for older boats and engines to shed a few years from their age when they get advertised though - I've lost count of the times I've seen a Shetland 535 being advertised as being mid or late 80's - they stopped making them in 1973.

Thanks for the replies folks he has gone off the boat now and is looking for something a bit newer.
