Bad Day!! I cannot find the pictures of the block and heads. Luckily, this was nothing I owned. Oil pickup weld broke, 5000rpm, you know the rest.


Would like to see those.

usually I launch on the Upper Fraser river when I go to Georgia Strait ,and there's a lot of logboating activity there, resulting the odd logs getting loose .The river is so murky that you can't see past a few inches from the surface. Some of these logs start to sink at the heavy end and get stuck in the bottom like a fricken tree.Seen logs as big a 2' in diameter sticking out at low tide standing up straight . I was lucky , because of the trim rams and external steering rams kept the shaft from pulling out any further , even the bellows stayed intact. I hit the log with the bullet of the drive dead center [ found wood chunks in the low water pickup holes] so even the prop was untouched by the impact.

Picture showing the logs all along the shore here
