Ahh - don't forget to run it in properly!!!

The Verado owners site is pretty good but rather biased. Looks like you get all sorts of problems if you don't treat the engines with kid gloves!!! Apparently they just don't like being tilted up for storage - if you do don't start it for about 10 mins after tilting down to let all the oil settle!!!

I noticed the Anchor fixed to the rear of the rib. Looks like a easy solution.

It'll swing around like crazy. The wind, tide or both will act upon the blunt end rather than the end of least resistance. If you're in a crowded anchorage, the stern anchored boat will be doing something totally different to the bow anchored boats which could result in a clonk if the spacings are tight.

Agreed. Good for the Scandinavian style of mooring though, the anchor out the back and line to shore.

Hi Patos
Looks fantastic with the 350 on it. Let us know some comparisons please, I might upgrade if the difference is big enough....

Thanks
Tony

Thanks
