tips for starting a cold engine:
Note for vire 12 models, originally your bing carburettor will have 12v electric choke solenoid which "clicks" open the choke piston. if it is not making a click when switched on, then its not working, so as emergency measure, you may temporarily richen the starting mixture screw. this is the small (4mm) slotted brass screw facing forward in the carburettor, (usually this is set to 1 turn out). id suggest unscrew it 1 more turn out (anticlockwise) until engine running, then back exactly where it was. this is the reason i now sell a manual choke conversion, because the 12v bing solenoid is unreliable and makes flat battery starting so difficult.
Note some boats have built the engine completely under the floor, in which case i would reccomend 2 things:
A. setup a pulley above the engine allowing pull starting to be possible at a different angle?
B. add a solar cell on the roof, which reduces the chances of a flat battery.
