Author Topic:   Performance Questionnaire

Some of the more experienced performance experts on this site should get together and come up with a performance troubleshooting questionnaire so we get all the information necessary to make a best guess as to what is wrong.

For instance, Jim could place this linked questionnaire on the perfomance page and the blanks could be filled out by the person with the problem, then the questionnaire could be posted. There could even be a disclaimer stating that any missing information might render the solutions irrelevant.

1. Make of boat?
2. Model of boat?
3. Overall length of boat?
4. Load carried over the standard boat and motor weight?
5. Motor Brand?
6. Motor type? Outboard, 2 or 4 stroke, sterndrive, inboard, bracket.
7. Motor size in HP?
8. Motor date of manufacturer?
9. Prop size if known?
10. Motor height as mounted on transom?
11. Maintenance history, tuneups, water pump impeller replacement, owner fiddlings, etc.
12. ???

I see a lot of wasted time and money in many of these topics and threads because the person who has the problem is not revealing everything we need to know to diagnose the problem.

That's a great idea, but something much simplier would also help immensely, and that's putting the year and model of your boat and motor at the end of your "Interests" in your profile... as you and I have both done.

It's also very helpful for others to be able to see your city and state, and country if not in the US.

If you don't have these in your profile, just click the "profile" link at the top of most pages, login with your username and password, and you can edit your profile.
