'Scuse me if tis is a dumbass question...
...but we've just bought an old Tohatsu 9.8 two stroke long shaft to use on the lake boat in Ireland, and it comes with electric start. I was just wondering what would happen if one of the less technically savvy members of the family connected the leads to the wrong battery terminals? Will they just knack the starter or do something more exciting.
We have left clear instructions on how NOT to do this btw... I was just wondering.
