Last week after almost a year of messing with engines and some woodworking, We finally launched out boat COCCAMO. The name comes from my last name (Cocca) and the song from the beach boys.

     We had a little problem with the port side engine. The boat is equipped with twin 350 Q style engines, raw water cooled. Both of which I (along with my Father-in-law) have been working on all winter. The port side is giving me some trouble with idling down. I can't seem to get her down to 1000 RPM or slower in neutral without her stalling. even with an adequate warmup time it takes a long time before I can get it low enough to shift without hurting the transmission. Even then when in forward or reverse It sounds like its about to stall. 

Also the Gauges were not working…..ANY OF THEM! We found it to be a wiring issue. the owner before me was just terrible with everything he did on the boat. Now that the Gauges are working for the most part. We have a very long "to do" list but its enjoyable. We have had a few trips out so far that have been lovely. Thanks for all the advise and know age from this group!
