.....and all the other things that might give the game away like shiny clean spark plugs scored cylinder walls and all the things that you run an engine in for to prevent happening! Assuming it's oil injection it also means if there is a problem with that (blocked oil line, air in the oil line, pump that got through the machine shop quality control when it should have been skipped) you just get an alarm as opposed to a siezed engine!
I think that's why after the first hour or so they allow a minute or so at WOT every so often. (your book of words will give the exact reccomendation). If it has the usual initial 1/2 hour or so at tickover, then launch and sit on the end of the pier enjoying your lunch as it ticks over. then stop, clean the plugs and carry on at half throttle or whatever they reccomend for the next stage.
Running in an autolube 2 -stroke is no worse than a low speed afternoon with premix!
