Mechanics of outboard engines
A good working outboard engine is necessary for safety. Of course, this is true for a motorboat or a small sailboat, but it is also true for a dinghy that stalls in the lee of an anchorage and whose oars do not allow it to go upwind.
On a long cruise, we spend 80% of our time at anchor, and the outboard engine is an everyday utility that doesn't make our lives any easier when it is acting up.
So, we roll up our sleeves and get out the spark plug wrench!
