Engine Manuals and other downloadables

We've just updated our website and it has become home to all the manuals and other info we have collected over the years.

Its all free to use, but if you find it handy and feel like repaying a favour, come and help out at an event - like the Great River Race ( we'll even pay the boat fuel!)

Home page is here www.northernexposurerescue.org.uk

BUT the manuals and literature are on the boating resources pages here

If you've got any that we haven't and would like to share for everyone else to use, please let us know.

thanks
Will

Your Yamaha 50-90 link pulls up Tohatsu. First link I tried.

Have you considered the copyright implications of putting these up? Material that is available elsewhere (Mfgrs sites) is probably not a big deal, but publications that are available for sale only (like shop manuals) might be.

JY - fixed the link problem, thanks for letting me know.

as for copyright... all the info has been available on our old website for years, and no one has questioned it. I've just never posted the links on here. All the documents are available elsewhere on the web for free.

I'll take it down if we're being unknowingly naughty.

Trust the cousins to come up with that one not "hey that's great, thanks for sharing" but "Hmm! how much can we sue for?"

Dave; don't be an ass. I was covering his butt, not trying to pad mine.
