DHD tugged off the DT100 on his Norfcraft, when the battery turned up it's toes when down here a few years back. It was warm, dunno if it would've fired if stone cold?

Looks like Nasher you take the title at 200Hp!
Beats me by 192hp, although I have failed to hand-start a 15.

It'd be interesting to try one of our 40s or the BF50; I must have a look at the instructions at some point.

The biggest PITA with hand starting the clamshell is getting the cowl back on with a spinning flywheel (pre fcovers!) right where you ideally need to lean to see how close you are to engaging the pins at the back!

I tried that - just once! The chainsaw like snarl of the ring gear touching fibreglass encouraged me to lay the clamshell on deck and make my way back to shore with a naked engine and passengers coraled where I could see 'em.

Not much bigger out there to top this in the 2 stroke class I expect although I can sheepishly claim the biggest 4stroke so far
