Re: Things you would only see in a marina!

I think you all misunderstand what's going on there. The very best mechanics and installers know that you have to leave a new engine out to "weather," as we call it in the trade. In this way the engine begins to adapt to its new environment. Adds years to its life. Many call this process "marinization" but they're misusing the term. Really, guys, read a book!
