Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Johnson 9.9 What Year?

    Good Day,
    Just joined the site today. Read the threads on how to determine the year of the model, but with the 2 motors I have I can't figure out what year they were built.

    Both are 9.9 hp

    One on the cover says Sea Horse 216 C.C - Model # J10RCSE and Serial # E5223809

    The other one says SailMaster Model # J10SEICNS and Serial # E5607042. Both were my dads and have been sitting in the garage for the last 5 years and probably only started about 10 times if that. My brother had them running 2 years ago, but today I just can't seem to get them to turn over........Really don't feel like buying a newer model...........but not sure if it is worth taking it to someone to look at, that is even if will they look at it. There are some repair manual on Ebay for less than $10.00, but they state the year and the model number on them, but not for the model numbers I have. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Dave

    J10rcse = 1980
    J10seicns = 1982

    Most things are the same on both models so either factory service manual would be your best bet. The 1980 manual will be easier to find used.
