My friends were new boaters, and they mentioned that the motor seemed to move a lot relative to the hull. Being a Honda 115, I knew it was heavy, and given that report, started to watch pretty carefully. What I saw was pretty scary. They didn't want to believe that anything was wrong (new toy); the ivestigative report from the repair shop kind of surprised them.
I'm beginning to think this is going to be a major overhaul. In any case it looks like the "school of hard knocks" is about to come into session.
Hope not. But, better to get it taken care of on land than find out about it on the water.
