  1. Yeah thanks for the replies guys, I'd suggest there must be thousands of boats out there on unbraked trailers over the combined 750kg limit.
  2. Hi All, The 750kg unbraked towing limit seems to be a bit of an issue as my trailer does not have brakes. I would very surprised if my 5 meter fiberglass boat was not over 750kg. Does that therefore make me illegal? Cheers
  3. Thanks mate, probably a bit far for me. What I have been told is that Power Marine in Hornsby are good for Yammys.
  4. Hi Does anyone recommend any outboard service locations in Northern Sydney? Was there a gut on here called Huey a while back who was recommended? Cheers
  5. Yeah, I trust noone but just saying what he said.
  6. Thanks, yeah if the pipe isn't blocked I'll just do that.
  7. Yep thanks, watched that and most of this blokes videos, good stuff. Will check the pipe.
  8. Haven't had it in the water yet, just bought it. Seller said pump, impellor, head gasket done 12 months ago.
  9. Hi Guys, As the title suggests, water just dribbling very slowly out the tell tail. Do you normally get a decent jet at idle on these motors without the need for any thermostat to open when cold started? I am next going to pull the tell tail pipe off to check for blockage. ps. getting water out the back of the engine at the little vent above gearbox. Cheers
  10. Yep that's the case in my area, pretty sure its the same in most places.
  11. Thanks mate, In Sydney and no driveway ATM, have backed a few boats down boat ramps, should be sweet but yeah will go at a quiet time to practice a bit.
  12. Thanks mate, I'll have a look how the system works, I think switch down is off, horizontal is 1 (not sure which one), pointing up is 1+2 and maybe you can also isolate 2 but unsure. Cheers
  13. Thanks for the great answers. Boat is parked on street so will need to remove batteries to charge. It's got a dual battery system with some sort of switch which I assume can switch between using 1 or both batteries, will need to figure that out. In regards to jump starters, any particular type? I'm assuming something like this (I have a whitworths a 5 minute walk away): https://www.whitworths.com.au/portable-quick-charge-jump-starter Cheers
  14. Thanks for all the replies guys. Was a bit hard determining the year for insurance purposes, the seller said 1988 but I agree looks more 70s. I haven't taken it out yet so can't tell how it rides. One selling point for me was new floor and stringers so hopefully no worries on that front for a while. In regards to props, how would I tell which prop to put on the motor? Also, this being my first boat, would you recommend taking it in to someone to get checked over for any issues before I take it out? Cheers
