Have to agree, love the 2 strokes myself as well, the noise and growl is really quite nice.
Is great news that you are getting such good mpg as that codship of yours is huge and the engine in comparison is quite small.
I have been really chuffed with the economy from my opti, much better than i was thinking i might get and vgood compared to many boats.
when you posted the first pics of your boat and engine you had one with the engine running and there was quite a lot of smoke round it........has that all settled down now it is run in?
i have only noticed any smoke from mine 2 or 3 times and has been momentary, and also i have not noticed any opti smell as folks say they love the opti smell, ....not noticed it myself!
