Which term is made up?

’inverted’ is what it says in the SmartCraft set up menu.

It says ‘inverted sender?’ and gives you the option to progress with the set up by pressing ‘yes’ or ‘no’

thanks - this aligns with my understanding - SmartCraft allows you to set the gauge to read either option - as far as SmartCraft is concerned (being American) it probably doesn’t want to ‘see’ my...

Yep - that’s how it’s wired - but apparently some senders are inverted (hence the...

This already exists and is readily available in Europe and I believe Australia for a number of activities including boating - I’d just contact these people to see why it’s not available in the US...

Bear in mind that running on just one engine, that engine is very overpropped, hence not being able to plane. If you carry a lower pitch prop as a spare you could possibly swap props and get on the...

I have hot and cold water plumbed to faucets just inside my garage door - mostly for filling a wash bucket for the cars, but also useful for attaching the hose for wet sanding the boat in winter and...

Maybe the reason why they're designing and building most of their range themselves now? - including the model in question - only 150 and above (essentially just two engines) are Hondas.

If I was the seller I would insist on a water test (and did when I sold my previous boat even though the buyer was saying, "don't worry I don't need to test it") so that I could prove it was OK and...

I spoke to a paint rep at a boat show about this - he said if you've just done it it once or twice a year apart (or even for a few years), whilst it's not a great idea you'll be fine. I always wet...

I thought it was good looking too - easily the best looking Japanese OB - not surprised though - the more recent 40-60hp Tohatsus are good looking.

Fuel tank - inverted sender or not?

Got everything set up right SmartCraft SC100 aside from the fuel gauge.

I would go for a hard paint if that's what you want to do - it will hold up better for a fast planing boat too. Might be easier just to clean with a pressure washer after only two days in the water...
