I'd love to mate but I make a pretty poor passenger thanks for all the invites tho, really appreciated... Its something I've always wanted to do, so I'll wait till its fixed then give it a go... I'm just glad the fault happened the last trip out diving locally rather than half way across the Irish Sea !

I'm super fussy, mine (sister to your's) lives in a sealed, draught free shed all winter, with an industrial dehume running on timer.

We'll see next week whether she comes out of hibernation trouble free or not.
Just read through this thread, I haven't been on for a while.

Surely not? I mean, it's an outboard, designed to be used in a corrosive marine environment ... so anything electrical must be waterproof otherwise it would go green and furry just in the salt atmosphere within about 3 months, used or not.

I've always tried to use my boats at least monthly through the winter, just had Seawolf out the other day for the first run since March and I just winterized it (so easy, took me longer to remember where the hell to find it in the menus than it did to run the routine) and I was about to lay it up for the rest of the winter in the new garage I've just built, but I wonder now!
