As I;m now on a real computer, I now realise I didnlt imagine what I thought I saw on the phone last night - your Port Engine - get the anodes checked / replaced - that bubbling opaiont would hint to me there is corrosion going on there.
If ther anode (bottom of the clamp & the trim tab) is OK, it might be worth having a crawl round checking the short earth wires that connect the "boig" lumps of the leg etc. - I lost an entire powerhead on a yam because one 5cm bit of wire had broken.....
It may of course be that the two engines came from differnet sources and one has seen more "life" than the other.
the whas standing in storage for just ove a year and whas never looked at so that is why i got it for such a good price (R15000) and if i spend another R15000) it whil basicly be a new boat with older motors in perfect conditions.
and the value whil be around R45000 so it is a good deal.
Yes they busy removing all corrosion and respraying both motors.
the corrosion plates at the bottom is getting replaced the motors inside i getting a service and new wiring.
whe are doing everything there is, whe are not skipping anything.
i would like know some history of the duck why they did the slidding pontoons and whas it sucsesfull.
whe are gonna glue the new pontoons to the duck but just would like to know why they ventured that way.
