I only said probably!


I'm still undecided now as it happens. Not sure about having the keys that close to the water.

I'd far rather move the ignition, but I can't think of anything I'd to fill one of the holes with and I really don't want to unloom it all to put something else in there.

Yes, but at least nothing will stick to the deck now it has a light covering of pink hydraulic oil

Good point. Neither are screwed in yet, so I'll probably go with that and a smaller key float.


Some shenanigans today getting the controls to work properly (helps if you get the start in gear protection switch cam in the right place).

The control wiring is in,oil tank frame is in, along with the fuel tank breather and the fuel whistle. Bilge pump is wired up, but left loose for now.


Checked the igniton switch was working by turning it over, and the motor fired up for a second or so! The lower unit isn't on, so no worries about any damage. It was nice to know it's all good so far.

10k posts... I feel old.

It's getting there now.

Fuel system is all in, wiring all in bar plugging in the new fuel gauge I've just had to order (the old one decided it would read either empty or full to the brim)

Wiring is all loomed up, just waiting for the conduit to go round it.
