Reputedly, as a package cost the Mod for the boat and engine 33700.00
The tubes, I havent come across these before but i knew they existed .
picture 4 has the 2 layers of Hypolon peeled back to reveal the 4 inch thick very dense foam collar, keep digging and you will find a inflatable collar as picture 2 shows it partially inflated so far i have unlaced it and found 2 leafield valves.
Picture 3 shows a water drain plug which when removed was dry thankfully.

Hopefully the pics will speak for themselves

The transom plate on my SR4.7 says 120kg (it actually says 265lbs, but that's what they meant )

the info that was given to me was that there was a merc 2 stroke fitted in the land of song.
Twatsoo is good at 115kgs and heard nothing but praise for these engines,i will have a look around
if it is rated at 70 and i put a 75 on at 120.5, is this really going to make the difference?
