Finally got out for the first time this afternoon for an hour or so for a practice before it got a bit choppy for us newbies (from a place called Crudenbay) But at least a we are a bit more confident with the OB reliability now. Which was the main purpose of the trip along with trying to figure out the positioning, trim and setup of everything.
Only mess up for the day was while fitting the OB to the transom we trapped the tachometer against the clamps and completely smashed the unit!
(The plan was to decide while out today exactly where to fix it, but instead will need to buy a new one now)
We know it was bang on 4 hrs on the tac before we destroyed it, so have a good idea how much the total hours are without the need to hook the OB to the pc.
Worst bit was due to our lack of experience we didn't know what rpm we were doing, which made it hard to experiment with different setups, although due to the chop we were taking things relatively easy anyway.
But thereís always another day I suppose!
