Quite. I reckon 2-stroke is the only way to go for these small outboards which get chucked into car boots etc. My Yammie dealer told me that even if you have it laid down on the correct side, just driving the car round a corner quickly can be enough to force some of the sump oil into the cylinder I've hated that engine from the day I bought it and quite frankly the seabed is about the best place for it.

Bit scary all the same. Quick thinking by yourself !

Handy to have the fire extinguisher at hand; must do a double-check myself now.

Just one comment, on my tender I have always had a length of rope attached to the outboard & the transom! If this had been the case you could have dunked it the pulled it back up!
Bit late for you Phil I know, but may help someone else!

I can let you have one of my 200 yams 2t -for a small price. You will have to have pistons/sleeves.carbs done-but it will put you back in circulation- they weigh in at 210 k.

Sorry to hear that happened -obviousely a leak . Cant think of anything else- as you stated a "coughing" start. Freightening. Could have blown up.Does codders have an RPG-7? He has NVG's and I wonder what else he has picked up ex army surplus?

Sorry to hear that Phil,glad your OK.I think you did the right thing throwing it over board,it could have been alot worse.A safety line on it might have been handy you could have dunked it in the water and then lifted it out.
