Hi, just found the forum and have been reading for hours!
I have just bought a 4m Tidalwave sib that im going to collect tomorrow (very excited) and I will be using a 25hp mariner 2 stroke. I plan to take the boat to france on holiday for the summer but the outboard is long shaft and has previously been on remote controls. I want to change to a tiller but I have a few questions;
1. Can/should I keep the electric start system or just use the pull start?
2. Where do these wires go?!
they are hanging out the front of the engine, ive go the engine started with none of them connected but I had no way to switch it off.
3. is it safe to make a plate to raise the transom 5"? Something like this: http://www.marineengine.com/products...php?in=3430218
any help would be much appreciated!
