This was then compounded later in the day when having got it running, it again came to a sudden stop due to no fuel. Must have been running a bit lean prior to that.
Shouldn't listen to rumours!
Rob Mcarthy borrowed my powerhead (OCRDA) and going to the warm up area realised there was no water coming out of the tell tale so he got a tow back - I had nothing to do with fitting the engine or the gearbox! The boat never got as far as the kilo.
Also I don't know anything about Rob running out of fuel, maybe he can clear that one up?
ps Well done to Hutchy, I think I'm going to need a lot more power to beat that!
