By the way, you've got a great blog and I really like your boat. My best wishes to your family
Fair winds and calm seas.
Hey, Moenie kak praat nie! Thanks for your kind words. I am very happy with the L model. I help a lot of people with both models. The L is easier to start out of the box, but this can change over time. The gearshift is closer to the tiller arm on the L.
All of these models will suffer fuel
enrichment over time as the idle jet is eroded away. A good idea to keep one in stock. Usual jet life on 3rd world fuel
is about 3 years.
The L 15 and E 15 are the same basic engine
otherwise, its not a de-tuned 20hp. The 9.9 and 13.5 are also the same engine
except for the reed valves.
