Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Hakan Pettersson for sending us in the first start up of his First startup after being completely rebuilt in Sweden! Dang! Now when you look at the video you think, mmm, am I going to be able to look at 3 minutes of engine running? All my marketing rules say folks don’t watch more than 1 minute.. But there is something about the sound and power of 85 hp thats been tweaked a bit.. Way to go Haken for maken our day!
