He's getting a bit crabby these days. Have they changed the solvent in his marker pens?

I have bought a new 15hp Hidea 15 months ago.. just love it.
when i researched it I found that the parts are all interchangeable with Yamaha. many of the parts come from the same factory and assembled elsewhere under the hidea brand. I flipped mine just after i bought it. it was under water for 15 minutes and started on the 3rd pull. I have clocked up many hrs since and it has never missed a beat. value for money it can't be beat and I believe this will become a strong brand in time. I took mine back to where I bought it and told them it was under water. They said it is fine as long as I got it running. All wiring is sealed so nothing really can go wrong.. I also find it to be very quiet compared to others on the market.
they are selling well in new zealand

Feel free to email me if you want to know more on
Hope this is helpful

hi to all. I have owned a 15hp four stroke parsun for 3years now and have to say that mechanically it is perfect, quite, uses next to no fuel, good power and starts first pull every time(even after winterisation). I have used it on a cheap 3.3metre sib, an ally sea nymph and now a honwave 3.5 for fishing bass. So it gets many hours of abuse. The only negatives so far are weight( at 55kg it's a bit of a brute) and just this year some paint is starting to bubble and come off the lower leg. So all in all I would recommend them.
