My new Andros Tarpon 26ft FishingBoat with ETEC G2 300hp Engine

Hello Everyone, I just took delivery on my brand new Andros Tarpon 26ft Fishing Boat with my new ETEC G2 300hp engine. Andros Boat also fitted my boat with a wheelchair Lifting Device to get me in/out of boat. Very cool. I attached a video of Lifting Device.  Looking forward to doing some serious fishing in and around the Pensacola Fl. pass.

That is a very unique and very clever way to board the boat. I like it and am heartened to see that you remain a dedicated boater.

 

Is there some type of clamping or retaining system to restrain the chair wheels from slipping or moving from the console while underway and in rough water?

Re: My new Andros Tarpon 26ft FishingBoat with ETEC G2 300hp Engine

Hello blue water bill,
I just signed up with Evinrude Nation for the first time yesterday. There were several forums available. So being new I put in an ad in the each of the forums, to first introduce myself to everyone at Evinrude nation, which had a brief description of my brand new Evinrude Etec G2 engine, my brand new Andros Boat, and finally information on a newly designed lifting device for me since I'm in a wheelchair. I thought mentioning that would be a very important topic to pass on to Evinrude nation for all the people who are disabled, or all the people who have family members that are disabled could get out on the water like I have done and live life to the fullest. Maybe buy a boat and an Evinrude engine and have fun. I also added another post on not having an owners manual that provides the operating parameters of my new engine such as normal operating temperature of engine at idle, or at normal cruise speed. There should be temperature ranges min/max that you do not want to exceed. Normal oil pressure range, normal amps range for batteries, and all other pertenant data pertaining to my engine. I did receive an Evinrude operating guide but it does not have this information as you stated it did in your reply. There is a lot more to know about this engine then what's in the operating guide. I believe I need the complete owners/maintence manual. In my life I spent 22 years as an air traffic controller, I have flown airplanes, and I have race cars. It is important weather in a car, a plane, or a boat to pay close attention to engine data. Some rely on computers to do everything but I'm old school and prefer reading instruments and making the right choices.
In regards to your reply, bluewater bill, my boat was built by Andros Boats in Sarasota Fl., they are very good partners with envirude, and the engine was installed by an authorized personnel, and yes I did receive an owners guide.
So if anyone out there has the information I am looking for I would greatly appreciate input.
