Yep, leave them trimmed down in the water for hard freezes. Nothing else needs to be done with an OB. Except Yammi 350's, they trap water in the block.

Detroit two-strokes (53,71,92) have not been sold for pleasure boats for like 20yrs. Some still made for the military, I think. Emissions regs killed them. DD is now owned by MTU.

No. Lots of boats had marine 692 in the 400's. Good engines at those ratings. That 653 at 400 was a miserable beast.

That B37 should be pretty easy to push for a pair of 692. That's probably why they are still alive with those hours. 92's suffer when they are high hp AND have to push a really heavy boat. Run...

I probably did not phrase it well. Some cars are not involved in commuting, so can absorb solar in the day. Some will be commuters at workplaces that have solar inputs to grid (or locally) charging...

The Volt did have the cost issue. Had all the hardware of an e-car, and all the hardware of a gas car. Almost two in one.

E-cars have a nice benefit in that the batt charging can absorb and buffer the erratic output from wind and solar. Erratic output from those sources are a problem for the grid. Add car batts to the...

The e-car tech is still new and developing. The cost, range, limited charging stations, and long charge times are the limiting factors right now. I think the range may get a bit better, but...
