That's a relief. I started getting worried that the seller sold me the wrong size engine. Not sure why Tohatsu decided to make a 17'' shaft rather than the standard 15'' version. Wish their website had more information on it too!
Rather than starting a new post,
1) does anyone have a decent set of oars they could recommend for this AVON model? I just purchased the Bravo 2 foot pump from Amazon. Hope this was a good choice. Trying to get all the needed necessities before the weather gets nice again.
2) are the hypalon restoration solutions worth it? Mine looks ok but it's also a 1990 so I was wondering if I should just hold off or use one as a preventative.
3) Is it better to leave these SIBs inflated or partly inflated when not in use or is it better to completely break them down and store them in their carry bag?
Finally, 4) the AVON logo patch is coming off a bit. Some have recommended using 3M 5200 Marine Adhesive on Hypalon. Any thoughts?
