Re: Things you would only see in a marina!

If you PM me the location of the marina and that motor I'll ensure it is safely stored until the owner asks me for it.

Maybe it's bait?

Apparently they didn't think to add a sticker "Don't leave out the rain"!

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!

Mobsters and gangsters don't lock their cars. Maybe if you found out who owns it, leaving it unattended would make more sense. But more than likely its just going to be someone without much savvy, or maybe there was a mix-up in arranging the install.

I think it was nice of them to leave it on a dolly so you can get it out of there way for them.

Wow I thought my memory was bad. They swapped the gold out on the jet before offloading it to the false engine in the van. If you remember the van when it crashed the engine container was thrown open and some the the strong boxes thrown to the ground and opened, exposing steel washers . One of my favorite Gene Hackman films.

My guess is that it's Jimmy Hoffa.

On Tilghman Island, Chesapeake bay when the watermen get a new engine for their boat, they keep it in the back of their pickup for at least a week before putting it in. I always thought that this was a bragging thing (i.e. I got a new engine na-na-na-na). I now know better Thank you!
