So what’s the answer gents?
I need to transport my old 5 hp 85 Merc. for service.
From above .
1. Disconnect remote fuel tank line ,run motor in water till it stops
2. Lay on side with gears side up
Correct?

I don't have an answer but I do have a supplementary question for you.
Who are you getting to do the service for you?
And what are you having done? Oops, that's two questions.
I'd be interested to find out the results of the service work as I have recently acquired a 210cc twin cylinder extra long shaft Mercury that I intend to put on the Careel.

Cheers etc.

Kareemarine Rocklea , only because they are closest Mercury dealer to home and were really helpful in sourcing a friction block and fittings a couple of months age.
It goes well but as I don’t know when last serviced I have requested a basic service only as its pretty old and not worth spending a fortune on.

PS. Just back from a flying trip to Paynesville and having been away for some months, I noticed a major change in the water colour. Is there any blue-green algae happening that we know of?

We were on the hard near the ramp, wind was a bit too much for us so we fixed some of the birds nest (electrics) and fought off the mozzies which were thick on Tuesday night.
Came home yesterday as it was getting a bit too hot for us too.
Trevor was his usual happy self (surly Bustard but I tell him he is and he is quite OK)

Our Toey lays tiller down but it is a 4 stroke

I just tried the mariner out on the nature strip and it did a poor job of cutting the grass and the noise upset the neighbors. There was nothing glorious.


You don't actually have any grass on your nature strip!

Probably quite good for the edging though :)

The weather event that wasn't still dumped a fair bit of water into the lakes and the water got a bit murky afterwards, it had started improving last week and I think we've been lucky enough to avoid an algae bloom ( I think). So the ,urkyness you're seeing must be from all those outboard mowers chopping up the marine grasses?
