I just finished a OB15 and I am very impressed with how it handles a chop and overall performance. I have a 45 hp Mariner on it and it pushes it nicely. I have not put a GPS on board but I think it is running at about 30 mph. I am going to take it for a run tonight and I will get some figures for yo...

To close the book on this one it was the lower crankshaft seal. Got the motor back together and tried it out last weekend, much different result. Jumps up and goes. My next problem is that I have to soft of a corner on the chine and water is rolling up the side and sticking. No big issue just someth...

Ken, Saw the pictures in the gallery and answered my own question. My experience has been that you can not use the single lever multifunction controls in a multistaion application because of the safeties (detents) built in the single lever. Yamaha did make a multistation control for twins but I don'...

Ken,

I am assuming you are using a two lever morse on the lower station, Clutch and throttle separate?

Just as a heads up/follow-up I think I found my problem. I did diagnostics on the engine ignition and fuel system and it turned up nothing. So I went forward and pulled the power head off to check for blockage in the exhaust port of the piston and found that was OK. What I did find was the lower cra...

I used a air inline sander to fair my OB15 with good results. The issue I had was that the $100 version made it about 75% of the way through so I had to return it and get a second one. They use a ton of air. My 5hp 50gal compressor runs all the time when it is in use. Couldn't find an electric one b...

I am fairly certain I do have a engine problem but it is strange. The compression on all four is 130psi. All have great spark. I run it and remove one plug wire at a time and you can here it in the idle except for the bottom cylinder. Soooo seam like no power being made there. Has spark and has comp...

The engine is most definitely low on the transome. I need to bring it up about and inch. I think something must be going on with the motor. I plan to give it the once over this week to see if anything is up. Spark and compression are good. The boat is light. I followed the laminant schedules and use...
