Went to refill the boat fuel tank but only had half the required amount of my Mercury 2 stroke oil left but I have plenty of 2 stroke oil for my whipper snipper. Only thing is it says in bold writing not for marine use, what's the go here? I've used non-marine oil previously with no dramas but I only just noticed the warning today
Air cooled engines run hotter so the oil is formulated to burn at a higher temperature, if oil for air cooled engines is used in a marine engine it may not burn efficiently therefore fouling the spark plugs.

🤦‍♂️ how did that not occur to me. I was even trying to think of why just then when I was running the outboard up at home with the hose thing attached for water cooling. Hahaha, probably explains why it tends to smoke more at times too.

Went out yesterday, nice day, a little windy, got a fish that was smaller than my bait 🙄 then a toad came up, would have been 400mm, used to see them in Bowen. Mate caught an undersized mackerel on the way back.
Bloody accessory switch playing up again, today the radio and chart plotter are being rewired without the accessory switch.

I bought a hand held marine radio with scan function. When I picked it up I found that the scan function only covers channels that you program in. OK, channel 16 is the VMR so that goes in. What others should I put in?

Got one of those, would like specific channels to program in. Spying on the people who are catching fish. I have the main radio in the boat to listen to vmr. Just thought there may be some secret squirrel channels that I should monitor.

Nah it's a really early 390 Hornet model, narrower body but with the extra wide gunwales/gunnels (not really sure which is more correct haha) which I prefer.
Did your trailer roll back into the dam!?

Yours looks super light, what size is that in the explorer range is that 350? Feet means nothing to me lol
Nah wanted to soak and neutralise any dried on salt. Could have been pissing into the wind and had my concerns about the bearings, but I'd rather potentially change bearings than steel cross members.

Mine's a Jabiru. 3.4M and was a car topper for the previous owner.

Looks perfect except all the places I've smashed into things. It's had a bloody hard life seeing as though i've owned it since I was 18 and done some really dumb chit to it.
