I bought this rig back in 2012 for the Mercury 150 XR4. Life & procrastination got in the way over the years, so it sat on the fence line under an oak. I’m motivated now, so I spent a couple hours last Friday moving vehicles & boats to dig this out. I found a large amount of red wasps under the cowl and a few dirt dobber nests. Getting rid of the wasps was time consuming, they were hanging out everywhere they could be. All around the flywheel, behind the starter, behind the linkage, you name it. Must have been 80 of them in there!
Here’s some of the pics of the boat/motor[Gallery not found]
