I have been warned that Opti oil consumption for the first 10 hours is extreme to say the least. This is also mentioned in the book of words - i'll update you again after this period of automatic over-oiling is complete!

The fuel /oil ratio levels out at around 100/1 or a bit more.

Daniel you may remember I maentioned in confidence to you about my Garmin working loose from it's bracket, does the bracket on yours have to slots cut from either side through which slides the threads of the thumbwheel bolts. If so which way do the opening of the slots point, Fore or aft, if they point to the aft might i suggest you turn the bracket around.

Most impreesive looking boat by the way you really seem to have done an excellent.
