    tohatsu 6

    Went sailing today, coming in just shut off, like you pulled the kill cord. Finally got it restarted, had to play with the throttle, all the way back, just to keep it running. Need it Sunday, for race and mechanic won't look at it for a week. Ideas? Never used Ethenial gas.

    phrf boats

    I had a Santana 23D for 14 years. In flat water it is a killer. will sail under it's rating. Hates chop. Easy to trailer. When I donated the boat it was about 25% West epoxy. Not the best built boat I ever owned.

    tohatsu 6

    Had an issue with the motor, coming in from sailing, today. The motor just shut off, just like if you pull the kill switch. Finally got it going again but had to sit and play with the throttle, to keep it running. Any ideas? Need it this weekend for a race, then in the shop, if I can't fix it. Ideas? Thanks.

    Melanoma

    When I had my second one it was in my hair line. Discovered during haircut. Doc said if she hadn't found it, I would have had less than a month. Doc saw it and said, it's coming off today! Hairdresser got a very nice gift at Christmas.

    RIP Kevin Burnham

    My most amazing day, of sailing involved Kevin. Sailing a Lightening with Jim Pinion driving, me center, Kevin bow. It was Dec, with the NE wind honking through Bear Cut. The weather mark was up near cut. We rounded the mark and raised the cute. Off on a screaming reach. Jim said he couldn't feel the rudder, looked back, it had snapped off at the waterline, gone. Somehow, we got the cute down and jib up. With Kevin instructing us where to sit and adjusting the sails, we sailed back to CGSC and parked at the dock, just like we had a rudder. Well never forget that day!!

    Where did you see this ? I checked and what I see is, we no longer carry this product. They have 2 Pro Starts in stock, not what I'm looking for.

    Flying Tiger - Tohatsu 9.8 HO motor

    I have a Tohatsu 6 on my S2, 4600 ibs. Has served me well. I have had a problem that if the motor dies, very hard to restart. It was suggested to give it 1/2 choke. Starts back up with 1 pull. I find that with Tohatsu owners, they either love them or hate them.
