    One more pointer to glean from the pic: get the right ball mount... trailer should be towed level.

    Not familiar with that setup. But if it's the same as the DI, fix it before riding. The pump pressure can cause the thru-hull to pop right off. And I speak from experience... sinking is not fun.

    BTW - I wouldn't place the tie-down strap over the seat. The strap should be over a solid part of the hull or through the tow hooks. And without a bow roller, there should be one strap on the back...

    I've used the rope trick on Kawasaki 4-stroke motors without a problem. Think about it... when the piston is at the top of the stroke, all valves are seated, so it shouldn't bend any valves.

    Slower speed with bursts of power might also be caused by bad spark plug wires. The ends of the wires get frayed and when you pull the boots, some strands of wire will fall out. Remove the boots,...

    I agree with Steve. Radial tires are the way to go. Alternately, go with wide tires.

    And pack a spare tire, a jack, some tools and one or two spare hubs with greased bearings. In the event of a...
