I was asked from a friend what's about the risk of losing the outboard engines ...

Are there any experiences with lost outboatsengines?

Hi Johannes

When my tiki38 was brandnew we almost lost one outboard engine on our maiden voyage....

there was short step wave since many ours and when I opend the engine box to refuel the motor was

in the water and only the cables stopped him from sinking....we could recover the engine but since then he never ever worked properly again.

It was my fault, I just fixed the outboard like we do normaly, that meas with the screws on the motor. After this adventure I throughbolted the motors to the box and thas fine..
