""""This engine produces about 80 HP. Not a Diamond Series Cummins. Do you really think it will rip the marina apart? Has your marina ever weathered a storm? Tie some knots? Put some extra ropes on it? Put the bow against something?""""

Xsbank,

If I gave offence I apologize. That was not my intention, rather to get the O.P. attention. I tried later, upon rethinking my comment, to edit but I was too late.

No, I do not think this action will rip the marina apart. Yes, put extra lines on it but some times in spite of the best intentions things go awry.
And I did say take someone with you to run the boat. That's what I do, my wife runs the boat while I check things.

Keep in mind that the 135's came originally with the external coolant expansion tank. Only the older 120's needed the installation of the coolant recovery "kit".

As Ski said "Many of these recovery bottles don't work due to bad or wrong cap, plugged ports, bottle mounted too low, or leaks anywhere. Seeing the level move with temp swing tells you all is well."

In my case, the tubing to the bottles was completely shot with kinks, blockages, etc.

I would have fitted kits to my 120s had new caps not stopped coolant loss.
