Better get that eccentric bolt dialed in right the first time, because once you dunk it in the salty, it's going to rust solid. Now, if they had a stainless steel version, we'd have something...

I'd put a 3/4" quick connect fitting on the hose and a barb on the tank. Same thing for the drain but with a larger diameter hose. Where is the drain hose going, on deck or under the deck?

I owned a 1999 115 Ficht on a 175 Scout. It was a decent motor. It tended to carbon foul spark plugs after 50 hours or so because the '99 heads did not have the deflector pins in them.
