    Hi Folks,

    Asking for a suggested list of outboard spares to take with – given enough Nigel Calder books to be able to enact minor repairs. Generally most thought is given to the main – however it seems prudent to stockpile a cache of most likely needed outboard bits.

    Our outboard is a Tohatsu 8hp driving a 4.1m portabote
    Spark plug
    Impellor(s)
    Water pump is as far as I currently have gotten
    Start ya [email protected]$ / carby clean

    Any other thoughtful suggestions?

    Regards,

     

    Ian

    Hi Ian
    A spare prop, castle nut and split pins can save you a lot of heartache.

    Hi Ian, Kevin’s extras pretty much cover it. I also carry a tube of gearbox oil and a gearbox oil bung washer. Plus spare engine oil for 4 strokes.

    Cheers, Ross
