Right place right time

This doesnít happen very often for us but it did yesterday. We were at my uncles house for a Christmas party last night .
My uncle just recently sold his sailboat and isnít going back to boating. He had this brand new dinghy motor that he had just listed on Craig s list . The rum was flowing just right and he mentioned how disgusted he was with the crappy calls from the add . A little later and a lot more rum and wayla this Lehr 2.5 is mine for FREE😀. Should work perfect on our Trinka 10 footer.

Every now and then when you step into it, it comes up smelling like roses.

I was very happy with the fuel consumption. Have 2 of the 17 pound composite tanks. Used them on the outboard and the gas grill. Went through 3 tanks in 8 months between the outboard and the grill doing the Great Loop. Nice to be able to shine a light through the tank and see the remaining liquid. Most stations won't fill composite propane tanks (thankfully, you only need to find one). Carburetors are junk Chinese quality. Replaced 2 in 2 years. No rebuild kits for engines smaller than 20 HP.

Had the little 2.5 hp one as well, ran very well, fuel stats seem right on, liked it a lot, only had it 6 months till I sold the trawler though.
