The old ob didn't owe us anything, no service during the ten years except to change the plugs every other year or so. The guy who bought the old one said the bottom gear lube was a bit black.

Here's a pic with the new motor. No Southport Raw Bar bumper stickers on it.

Let my kids drive. You'll have a patch!

Are you keeping your boat in the Bahamas or FTL?
