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 topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (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 topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic 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 topic.

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

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic 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 topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic 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 topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

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

      Re: Welcome

      Got a call earlier this year from someone in sales and asked if I wanted to be a dealer for this line. When they said propane, I said "huh?". Wasn't really interested but then they asked if I would consider doing warranty work for them. I asked who was selling them and the possibilty of any being in the area. They asked how close was a West Marine? I looked out the door and said, hmmm about a hundred yards at best. Well they sell these engines. But still haven't seen any.

            anyone who dont jump on the bandwagon is gonna be missing out big time.
            LPG engines are here to stay, they are not new, just new to many people.
            LPG was used a lot during world war 2 to power a lot of industrial engines,motor cars,trucks and large boat engines.
            lpg has been used in industry for a long time, and anyone who has seen a forklift will of seen a lpg powered forklift.
            these engines are not special, they are simple 4 strokes with a jet into the intake for the lpg.
            they are more reliable and run smoother than petrol.

            the reason most boat dealers ahve not seen them is purely because they dont break as often and servicing is far less.
            for the service and parts side of the engines, they are no good to a workshop, they dont break as often and therefore
            no need to keep going back for parts.

            i say we need more lpg outboards and more 2 stroke lpg converters.

            i would jump at the chance of lpg on my 2 stroke outboard straight away.

            Ya cant fix stupid, coz there aint no cure
