I've just bought myself a new SIB + 20HP outboard and have been contemplating the merits of buying a tachometer/hours meter.
Are these useful beyond doing what they say on the tin?
For example, I've read various threads about people having outboards (new even) that for whatever reason don't rev beyond 3.5k when clearly max power is more likely around 5.5k... I'd not even know this without a rev counter.
But, is that likely... does this £50 bit of kit prove itself... or is this just me looking for shiny bits to add to my new boat?
This kind of thing...
