For example your outboard starts right up, keeps running with throttle applied in neutral, but shuts down the moment you come back to idle speed in neutral, the issue is likely to be a sticky or broken AIS (automatic idle speed) valve. This valve controls idle speed by regulating air intake, and when it gets stuck in the wrong position, it can shut you down cold.

event they are involved in an incident where there is a total loss or damage to protect the lender’s interest.

There is no more interesting character than “Dallas” whom I have featured on the cover for September.

Back in 2005, Dallas began his quest to build a raft, out of the most impossible junk you have ever seen, and float it down the Hudson River to New York City. As I looked into all this nonsense and saw the following that he had developed, I began to realize that this was more than just adventure.
