I wouldnt be taking it out far its mainlyt for use in training my newfoundland puppy for water recue work ( LOL so if it does break I can always get the dog to tow me back )
Fair, but it's not just a 2 stroke,it's an outboard as well so normal rules for modern (ie normal land based) 2 stroke engines etc don't apply due to the cooling,fuelling,ignition and exhaust systems as diagnostics aren't quite the same.
No insult intended but you do need specific knowledge of what's what and where it is-hence the 'get a manual' comment.
400 yards out is too far if you've got no power and being blown offshore faster than you can paddle or the dog can tow you-unless you're thinking of lake/river use only.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
