Haha!! Between this being the first engine I've ever played been inside and my terrible previous experiences with my last boat - this was pretty much how I pictured it. I plan on taking it easy anyway during the break-in period. I'm mostly concerned about the condition of the tranny. So far, I've been assuming all is fine. Seems to shift fine but that means very little. The boat only has 500 hours or so and seemed to have been taken well care of until the last season when it wasn't winterized properly.
