Hello all

I'm new to the site,

Iv put a deposit down on a Ring 16 today and am looking forward to collecting next week,

The engine has been winterised and was wondering on any tips you may have for bringing it back to life for the new season

It's a 115 merc

Many thanks

Hi there

It is the red ring 16 with a 115 merc

I did put a bid on the yellow one but am really happy with what I have.

service

will always pay to have the impeller changed and drop the gear box oil, may be a set of plugs, take them out and have a look. you can run it up on muffs to prove its pumping water but... as its you new boat i would have it changed. its not much of a job...
also have a good kick of the tyers so to speak to check the beerings.
