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 elseís 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 itís posted at the end of someone elseís 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: Lehrer gas mileage chart

    Thanks for posting that chart. The 31 pound tank is the one I'll use with my 15 Lehr, if I ever finish the damn boat.
    The problem is that it needs to be mounted on it's side. Lehr needs to figure out how to do that in a boat and keep it from rolling around.

      Have you finished your boat yet? I think I have a solution for the tank moving problem. In fact you can strap the tank to the transom or the bench seat. That works on a Rib, Sib or Jon boat

        Hi Ron, Still working on it. Built the outer gunwales Sunday. It's looks so close to finished but there are still a million things to do. My six month boat build has gone over a year.

          Looks like they made a typo on the 9.9 gph. WOT uses .44 gph, but 3000 rpm uses 1 gph. lol

          I'm considering the 9.9 hp for a Gheenoe, but I'm still on the fence. We have non-ethanol available here, but I've read you still need a GOOD fuel filter for new gas outboards.

          HopCar, I see you finished your project & the picture looks nice!

            Thanks JKL62, I was hoping to get out in it again over the weekend but it didn't happen.
            You're right about the typo. The 9.9 should burn about 4 pounds or 1 gallon per hour at WOT.
            If you decide to buy the Lehr 9.9, spring for the electric start. It's wonderful!
