Permanent Dinghy Engine Repair Solution
Of recent, there has been much discussion regarding dinghy engine repair and maintenance, 4 stroke vs. 2 stroke, problems with ethanol in the gas and so on and so on.

There has, as usual, been much speculation and opinion and bandying about of truth and fiction mixed in with the hard and useful facts.

I have recently, thanks to many Sailnet members, gleaned much experience in dinghy engine repair and have sorted through the wheat and chafe of all the discussions to effect a permanent solution to dinghy engine repair.

My simple 8-step method will guarantee, yes, that's correct - guarantee that you will never have to repair your dinghy engine again.

You may think it amusing, but I have no eyebrows left and my beard is sort of patchy. And smells funny.

Great how-to. I am surprised you didn't order the "repair" kit from Acme, the supplier used by Wily Coyote.

That's funny! I didn't think of it. We need to work together on these projects.
