Rib crusing in company is definately the way forward. It make sthe event more interesting on long journeys and of course if you have a problem there are allways plenty of people around to help out.

Keep going with the recruitent drive too for BIBOA, more members needed.

Hello Jon
It was about 15 years ago and I was mechanic on the boat. It was in the good old days of unrealiabilty when you spent most of your time in the engine box keeping the Chevy engines running!
I cannot remember the name of the boat but it was used in the very last Around Britain Britain race that Fabbio won. Anyway as I have said before, " I am geting to old for all this speed thing now" best leave it up to the youngsters. Alan P

Manos, from the engines point of view (not neccesarily the rams) outboards are better long term stored with the engine down, but definately with it up when it is in the water.
Leaving it down sets up all sorts of electrolytical actions, plus allows many biofouling thingies to b----r up your cooling system/gearbox oil seals etc.

There has been a certain degree of debate and comment on failures, warranty problems and the price of Volvo penta spares over the past few months I have been following that forum. It may not specifically be with your engine/drive combo, I merely mention it as it may be of interest that people have had problems with Volvo's.

Phil

Thanks!! I
I have noticed that the anodes work more when I have the engine in the water which is logical.
Will keep it out when in the water, down when on land.
Thanks again!!
