  1. Side Mount Control prob!

    Did you get the plastic bottle top out of the oil tank and its fallen down and jamming the linkage ?
  2. E-Tec engine problem

    I have an 50 hp E Tec and would imagine yours is very similar. The oil tank is transclucent so shining a strong light through it may reveal the caps whereabouts.after removing all the oil you can try putting an air line in it which should blow any loose objects out. if you want any advice phone Paul Thorne at South Coast Outboards (Christchurch) 01202 496630 as he is a very nice guy that knows everything E Tec. Regards Richard

  5. This is amazing

    These are avaible from Roche Marine for £130. ouch" and studying the video in slow motion it looks like it transfers a horseshoe shaped carriage from one side to the other driven by the upward and downward pressure of the pull or push. What is a bit worrying is they are also selling spare heads for these units which suggests they may have a history of failure.


    I really need your advice on a serious problem: I have suspected for some time now, that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs: if the phone rings and I answer, the caller hangs up, she also goes out with the girls a lot. I try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home but I usually fall asleep. Anyway last night about midnight I hid in the shed behind the boat. When she came home she got out of someone's car buttoning up her blouse, then she took her knickers out of her bag and slipped them on. It was at that moment crouched behind the boat that I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard engine mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld or do I need to replace the whole bracket?
  8. usefull gadget

    Hi Brian It is the bigger brother of Albatross a Quayline 18 they were hand built by a guy that now works for Sunseeker. My application for this device is to pump reserve fuel from a under floor reserve ballast tank to the running tank in a seat compartment which is about 18 inches higher and therefore would not siphon.
