IF it was prestigious, you wouldn't be allowed to be a member.

hi bigrib

Got two of the bastards on my transom. Early hours at the moment but what beauties. I replaced my 200's yams carbs ( 1994 vintage ) with the 250's and apart from getting married- it was the best thing I have ever done.
Consumption is some 15 liters/hour/engine at 2700 rpm ( 25 kts ) and goes to 30 liters/hr/engine for 42 kts at 4000 rpm and just could not resist it ... 5700
rpm - 60kts. There aint nothing like Yamaha to make you feel so young....me it wasnt the dentures- just the balls needed to be shaken up a bit...

Jonathan

What's that old joke --- especiallly IT consultants - one who borrows your watch to tell you the time... then keeps the watch!!!!!!!!!!!
When you look at it .. every tom, dick , and harry on this board seems to be an IT consultant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Must be missing something..

RW - the board is cerainly quiet , Codders seems to have gone AWOL, Richard B- I would have expected he would have taken the bait about IT..
What is about you people ? Everybody gone to sleep? and about being retired... only retired people can afford these expensive toys- if I was 30, it would be a 5m and 30HP, if I was 40 , it would be 6m and 200 HP, but now that i am "" its 9 m and 500 hp, age and power - it goes together.

only at 70 do you know a little something about nothing
