Yikes. A reply to the omc-boats-digest? :-) Makes for a lot of extra

Anyhow... Hi back, Thomas. Good point about the carb. Sure hope nothings
wrong in there, had it apart once before and it seemed in fair shape. All
except for a screw covering one of the highspeed jet adjustments (through
the float bowl I believe) which was always loosening (ever have fuel
spilling out into the bilge hold? I did). Apparently because of a bad nylon
washer I still haven't replaced. The reed valves didn't seem perfect either
but not bad I guess. The rest I couldn't tell much about.

And yep, I haven't given up yet. Thanks for the encouragement.

Bob H.
