1st outing

I eventually managed to get out on the water yesterday on my new Rib, had my arm in a sling since December so although i took delivery in January havent been able to take it out , it was lovely and sunny when i left Gosport and due to running in period i cant do more than 2000rpm for the first hour. 20 mins into the trip the heavens opened and down came hail stones which were pinging of my face , i was determined to get the first hour out of the way so stayed out and got very wet and cold, still next week hopefully i will get out again and open her up a bit.

2000rpm? Sounds a bit low for running in any engine to me, is that what the book says?

I think mine is something like that for the first hour.

If it's any consolation, at least yours are shiny & new - in the not too distant future I'll be needing to do that with an engine that's older than some of our members!
