      hopefully the engine fiddling is almost done. My aim is to never really think about the bloody things. Their sole purpose is to get me into a position where I can go sailing. if I never had to look at another in my life that would be lovely. An engine that required no more than turning a switch would be a marvelous thing. I have an outboard that has no more than an on-off switch. The future of quiet evening sails is electric.

      I have had a few emails from blokes asking for more fiddling and fettling videos – they are easy to do… so here they are.

    Eveinrude 2 pulls from warm,
    Tohatsu 10? From cold and smokey? the heavy 4 strokes have oil in the crank case so don’t like being stored on their sides.
    Oil get in all the wrong places……..
    Cheers Warren

    Yep, in the absence of a full length feature film I love the fiddlin and fettlin too. Roll Cameras and Action

    My tohatsu started with one or two provided you gave the priming bulb a good squeeze. Never idled well at all though and when docking would be prone do die at just the wrong time.

      I am slowly learning its foibles – good cold starter – no so good restarting when hot – I shall try being more enthusiastic with the bulb – thanks Chuck
