I have one and curse the bloody thing all the time. Utterly useless for a sailboat with our relatively small horsepower needs. In fact, my engine is a 150hp model, de-rated to 100hp, so any weight savings for powering up a smaller lighter engine is lost. Don't get me started.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
