Poorly engine. Short beeps on the alarm, the manual says ' poss water contamination in the fuel filter/seperator' checked it and nothing wrong there 😩

Really ? That's about right I'd have thought. What was the engine fault in the end ?

Considering ed (nugent) had 47knts with a 200hp I thought it would push a wee more.
The fault was the fuel sensor on the filter.

Four stroke versus 2stroke weight and power curve all adds up


But my old carbs unit sucked fuel like a tramp eats chips

What prop are you running. The Honda likes a big diameter prop like the Mirage 15"
