TM too tall?

Mine was too tall like that so I took it apart and cut it down to the height I liked​. I sit at the bench seat height so the taller height wouldn't work for me it was at my face.

I would like to see it. You could even ...

Basic Tips for a New Outboard Owner?

I second the no ethanol gas. Which is usually a higher octane than 87 which is better for small engines

Metal compatability for hinges?

you have done an AWESOME job on your build so far !! not to give you a yes or no to your question: but, many of us use stainless fasteners with aluminum parts with little to no ill effects. If you are in a total salt water environment, you may see more incompatability than someone in the middle sta...

Trailer leaf spring location

Did you wind up doing this? I did this on a previous boat, helped quite a bit. It has been rather cold here and I don't have a garage. So I haven't had the chance to do it.

Fisher Marine question

I am going to look at this boat on Saturday all I know is it's made by Fisher marine it has all aluminum floors front and rear live well. Its 16ft with a 40hp mercury it's a early 1980s boat and motor. The motor ran last spring but hasn't been started yet. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170216/1...
