Phew! Hope that was it, Nothing's cheap to fix on these things is it!

Sibbo90, I will check but your profile says your motor has Carbs so I'm not sure the software is compatible, if it is and you need it then the offer would stand. :-)

AIUI the engine management system monitors the quality of the oil as well as the amount.

I've only put 10 hours on it and I don't know what use/standing the engine had done with the previous owner).

So I'll take it for another test run soon and then just keep a watchful eye til I service it in 25ish hours.

Success!

I took the boat for a couple of spins today with the missus and youngest boy (broken up by a spot of lunch) and there wasn't a hint of a problem. The engine started on the first turn and didn't miss a beat all day. I only got it up to around 25knts but I'm happy it was just the oil quality (or a spurious sensor with the oil change not doing any harm).

Yeah, definitely! I spoke to an outboard mechanic who "sucked through his teeth" which is always bad, but feel better for having thought about what could be wrong and fixed it myself!

Glad you're up and running again.
