    ...we were. Boating waters around here can get stupidly shallow very fast but, hey, there are boat slips there so it must be ok, right? (Mistake #1) The stupid stock depth gauge is stuck on 2.31 depth. It's done that before. Shutting the power off and resetting it always gets it to wake up. I'll...

    2011 AR210 Check Engine Lights??

    Hello! from Treasure Coast Florida

    ...Your pics show the problem of Yamaha11s flush system: the amount of water it allows in is inadequate and it doesn12t distribute it well (to cylinder 1). I13d argue the issue of build-up (and subsequent overheat) is not caused specifically by 14salt,15 but rather 16salt water17 which contains an...
