Thanks. I've used it a few years now putt-putting around in a slow dinghy. I tested it out on a porta-bote last weekend and it got it up on a plane. I adjusted the mixture so it sounded sweet after it warmed up and then parked it. When we tried to go to shore for an evening campfire later, of course it ran way to lean and trying to hit that darn mixture screw in the dark was tricky. Darn it, they should have a knob like the older 3 hp Sea Horse I had.
