Virginia Beach Boat Buddy

Postby K2Sportfishing » Fri Jul 29, 2016 12:09 am

Hello everyone. I am new to this forum.

I have a 2004 240 Outrage which I have repowered with twin Yamaha F150 engines and need some help breaking-in these engines. I am a lone boater and don't have much experience.

Is there was anyone on this forum that has some availability to help me break these engines in near Virgina Beach, [Virginia]?

We can do some fishing as well. Thanks--Abe

Abe--Have you referred to your engine owners manual? If, by chance, the manual lacks break in instructions try the Yamaha website.

Go to the local marine store in Virginia Beach, Virginia. They usually have a bulletin board. Put up a notice that you want someone to ride along while you learn about your new boat. This is a more effective method of finding people that are local to you. By posting here the odds are really slim that someone will be in Virginia Beach, Virginia and will read this thread.

Just saw this post. I wish I was a little closer as I would be happy to assist. Unfortunately, I don't get down to the Virginia Beach, Virginia, area as much as I used too. If you haven't found someone yet may I suggest that you visit Lynnhaven Marine, a Boston Whaler dealer. They may be able to put you in contact with another whaler fanatic. --Good luck
