Triggers Broom wouldn't be a bad name for a boat

Re firing the rude up,Drain the carbs, drop the leg off 1st and change the impeller along with all the gaskets.Give it a quick spray of WD40 down the bores and on the bendix,hook fresh fuel up to it (50:1) and try and start it on muffs.

If it won't fire up on all 3 stop the engine and clean the carbs out.

The controls being missing shouldn't be a problem-you can access everything under the hood. To use the leccy start, just hook a battery up via jump leads(that way if the starter jams you can disconnect it in a hurry) and touch the trigger wire from the starter solenoid to the main power into the solenoid.

Be aware if it starts the only way to stop it is to run it out of fuel unless you know which wire went to the killcord.

What's this then?

One for the Left Foot and one for the Right Foot. Make sure your outboards are matched, otherwise you'll be doing the splits?

Well you had trouble finding enough space for one SeaRider, but TWO!

Well done matey, I'm sure you'll make the right choices in deciding what to do. I look forward to seeing a build thread soon!

Nice boat, it looks in god nick underneathe the shite! If you are going to use the braked trailer as a launching trolley consider removing all the brake components, then if you want to change your mind you won't have a rusted mass of metal inside your hubs!
