stevel's boat
« on: October 09, 2011, 04:46:10 pm »
Have had the boat for about 4 years - hull is an Horizon 425 sunrunner made in Qld, originally had Yam 40 premix 2st.
On way to visit mate in Moonah, called in to Maynes new show room , back next day with boat to see changeover - eyebrows were raised at home when I returned without boat attched to car  grin1

New motor is 50hp Honda 4st with 2.3 aux - wanted just one fuel on the boat.
Reg & his team were great - linked the engine data into my Lowrance 59 fish finder so have fuel, temp showing - learnt more about the Lowrance in a few minutes with Reg than reading the manual over the years.

New motor runs so quietly in comparison - glad the telltail splashes so I know when it is idling. Move into gear and can just idle along at troll speed. Very economical & NO smell
Not much time on aux but 1/2 throttle gives 5 to 6km into wind
