Re: Riding in South Florida

Thank you John for the reply. Never got a chance to reply. Redid all the wiring, grounds, etc leading to the console. Finally getting a chance to take the boat to Gus this week for a once over. I believe the boat is running on one mag and will need a mag rebuild. S4LN-20 is the problematic mag. 21 w...

Re: Riding in South Florida

Finally got a chance to get the boat on the water. Overall went well but did notice a few things that need work. Idles rough but runs fine once you give it gas. Oil cooler gauge not working. 2 of the blades on the prop are missing the ~12" metal piece at the end. Other than that ran pretty good...

Re: Riding in South Florida

I am going to make it to the BBQ for sure with or without the boat.

Does anyone have a mechanic in Miami Dade they can recommend to give the motor a good look? Preferably someone with knowledge of aircraft motors.
