Just been down & had a look! I can see the mixture screws on the carbs but to be honest I don't want to mess about too much as it really flies at full chat.
Nos, I presume you mean the bolt @ M6 with a rubber end and locknut, there are more than one. Is it the one on the arm that runs up under the flywheel that needs adjusting in a little? What sort of rpm is ok on tickover ?
Thanks

From memory yes, thats the one.Make sure you know where you have to reset it to if you need to as well. Don't adjust more than one thing at a time.

What's your normal tickover RPM? You don't want to go much over 800 if you can help it.

About 500 rpm, I'm waiting for the tide to come in so that I can have a fiddle with it !

Take it up to about 600 to 650 as a starter.

and yes, its the arm that goes under the flywheel - this is attached to the trigger assembly which turns within the stator. looking down on the engine, the flywheel should rotate clockwise, turn the screw in the direction that would move the arm in an anti clockwise direction - this makes the ignition fire earlier and so advancing. remember only half a turn at a time, remembering how much you have moved it.

Done about a turn & a half to @ 700 rpm. Today it started first turn of the key every time when warm and no issues engaging gears so fingers crossed.
She who must be obeyed has talked about skiing tomorrow plus fishing so I'll know more then. Certainly seems to have improved things a LOT.
One bit of advice I can pass on, don't rest your hand on the flywheel cover & get your thumb underneath.......It's still stinging!
Many thanks for all the help, it's what makes this forum worth joining (if you don't mind the occasional bit of dry humour !!).

I'll update you tomorrow ! It's a right PITA when you can't start on the turn of the key, fingers crossed.

Seems much better we hit 47 mph or around 40 knots according to my wifes I phone app.........
Boat fired up pretty much straight away with a little choke. It's amazing how quickly it empties the tank at full chat, fortunately we live miles from the coast or else I'd be a lot more skint than I am now.......
Thanks for all the input fellas
