My bet is on No Excuse. Been my experience same hp and the two strokes will run off and hide. Problem is they seem to hide at the nearest fuel stop. I know you will not handicap one over the other :roll:

We had the reg numbers printed on reflective vinyl. Had the pro put them on.

With a flash during the day! Should add some safety at night and the wide vinyl covers the bad paint areas on the bow.

Tomorrow is the day. $434 to get the 3 carbs rebuilt. Tried myself and gave up after two screws that wouldn't budge on the first one. Found a shop that turned them around in a day. Hopefully I remember how to put them back on ! Fingers crossed!

That is purring a lot better. Can I change my bet now?
