Yes, Yes!!

24/7 (while aboard) I keep a multi meter directly connected to my house bank (they start engines too). That way I can flip it on any time for readings.

He asked specifically about a model boat and engine....he probably doesn't give a rat's rear end what we have....or keep on our boats.

Maybe he is smart enough to use a crecent wrench and Swiss Army knife on non-critical systems..

Maybe if he just generically asked what tools to carry on a new boat delivery .....but he didnt.

It seems to me that TF has started to become a little slanted towards every thread is started by some clueless boater.

Yup. I'm guessing the question was primarily to do with the Perkins, especially since he is an ex sail boater, boatless for 14 years. Should be half way home about now.

I'm serious, by the way. I have used duct tape for a temporary fix on a leaking hose. Saved the day.
Rescue tape

Well to be fair, I do start a few threads so the assumption does have some merit.

Scotch Tape works best in Christmas patterns.

Before you leave dock, find out (1) what impeller your engine uses and have a spare, (2) what wrench the impeller cover requires, could be metric 6, 7 or 8, and (3) what fuel filters are required. Have all three.

Fuel filters, Rescue Tape, bailing-wire and a set of channel-lock pliers. I suggest driving the boat hard for half an hour while still close to home, then head for your destination. IMHO nothing on a boat goes wrong while you are still tied to the dock!

Greetings,
Seems to me IF Mr. J made the ferry AND all went, sort of, according to plan, he's sitting aboard his new ride, at home, celebrating his successful delivery trip OR....He's adrift somewhere in the north Pacific, furtively applying duct tape, binder wire and drinking rum...
