I think maybe it was at low speed. It had laid over on its side and begun to suck some crankcase oil
through the breather and running slow when it fell in.
Everything was full of salt water
, crankcase and both cylinders. Took about a half hour or more before I got it aboard the big boat
and flushed out the water
from the cylinders with fresh etc and got it running again. Had to dry the plugs with alcohol to get them firing. Several oil
flushes and of course a good soap and water
wash later and it runs fine, so far
