Had to change a plug on a brand new4/ engine well 10 hours use a couple of years back, was a faulty plug insulater tip that was sliding about and shutting off the spark ,would start up and run fine but when up to about half throttle and with a bit of load on engine would go on 1 cylinder owing to vibration causing insulater tip to slide up/down down and shutting off the spark ,

changed quite a few plugs on older 2/ engines over the years owing to flooded carbs ect and props with shear pins .

its not a bad idea to see/try if the tools that you keep onboard WILL undo the bolts/screws on the pullstart so that you can get to the emergency starter pully or remove the prop nut and there not too tight or sized up .
some of the crappy box/tube spanners or sockets that come with the engine tool kit soon round off and get rusty , at least you know then that the nuts can be removed with the tools that they were tightened up with if needed in anger.

Pray that you get an outfit as good as our CHC teams, contracted to our Coastguard SAR. They are excellent. Your UK CG currently call them in for air ops in Northern Ireland, the North Channel and the Irish Sea.

Wash your mouth out with that whiskey...

It is.

I've had to use odd bits and pieces out of kits over the years. I hope never to use the rest....

Plugs are essential, changed them twice on trips last season.

I've already had the spark plugs out - they look OK but for 4 its a no brainer to order two more.
I've looked at the emergency start procedure in the manual which shows removing three bolts to get at the pully so I need to try this at home. Just not sure what to do about the linkage that prevents starting in gear. The manual shows it but doesn't say what to do with it! Hopefully there's a nice video on You Tube about it.

As for a spare starter I've told the wife she needs to wear a g-string in the boat
