Be sure to check, disassemble if necessary, and lube the exhaust bypass valve located on the right side of the exhaust tower. Very important!

Here is a short video of the motor running on the boat. Forgive the quality please as I was filming it myself and the conditions were a bit choppy.

This was at the Pine Tree Boating Club Meet at Pequawket Pond yesterday.

What a blast!

Tom,

I was using my 14’ Alumacraft FD. I would not want anything too much smaller.
