Yes... that's all you have to do to enter. I think you can "register" your name in our chat so it's password protected and it will be reserved for just you.

had to go to bed. May have good news, repair shop don't think motor is a complete loss, maybe just water pump. It turns over real good without spark plugs in, so not locked up, and he doesn't think rings totally shot, as has too much compression with plugs in. Just a waiting game. Good thing I still have the 140 Evinrude.

That is good news. I was hoping it was just the waterpump and not a major engine failure....

UH - OH! NOT GOOD! Checked compression today, and three cylinder have 70-80 # and one has 92. Definitely NOT good. Guess I better check on a larger boat for the 140. :(

I don't know what "good" compression should be for an outboard, but I was under the impression that EVEN compression was the single most important characteristic of two cycle engines with multiple cylinders.... no?

Supposed to be, will see what the guys say tomorrow. Anybody wanna donate about 10K to the "Get mudd_catt a new boat fund?" Found a NICE center console Carolina Skiff, or a center console War Eagle. I will even take all donaters for a fishing trip. :) :)
