    G'day all I am happy to say I am back after a long illness and hope to get back amongst the fish very soon .
    It will take a while before I get back offshore as I had to sell a lot of gear to try and keep my head above water .
    Anyway I hope you all are traveling better than I was .....


    Cheers TAC

    Yes I know about fuel especially these days I disconnect the fuel line and run it dry just after the last time I used it she's all fresh fuel and filters she's ready to go......

    I amazes me how little fuel this 40hp HONDA uses .
    It uses less than my old 25hp 2 stroke and it was on a boat that was half the weight .

    The older carberated two strokes started real easy if u ran them dry when flushing, my 90hp etec Evinrude is two stage injected two stroke doesn't have a clip off fuel line but still starts easy, it uses about the same amount of fuel as a carberated 40hp two stroke and idles at about 600 rpm.

    As Kev said you can 'drag and drop' them. I do it on a desktop and it is easy but doing it on a phone may be different. Have a go if you can as we could certainly do with more pics here.
    Cheers
