Me and I think there are a couple of others.

I use mine for fun mainly but occasionally I take my Dad fishing.

I have the 3.8 air floor for fishing. But I only recently got it so I have only done some sea trials and the fishing will start early April.

Am I mistaken or has your outboard not got a pull start? Maybe it's your wobly camera work

I don't want to pass judgement but is it not wise to have a pull start as a back up?

I'm really pleased with my Prowave mines the 3.8 meter version of yours.

Do you trailer yours or assemble/dissemble each time?

you sure there is not a notch in the flywheel, most engines have that.

If I have to I can start it with a pull cord , but I have to remove the hood and a plastic cover to get at the fly wheel , I also have a 6hp 4 st mercury I can stick on the back

I bought one of these , so I will be trailering , and beach launching ,
