Great to hear this Carl you'll do a great job....you the outboard go to guy !!!For those who may not already know, I have recently been named as the IMPBA Outboard Director. I have been running outboards since 1978 and have seen a lot of changes both good and bad with outboards. With only two nitro outboards still available to purchase complete at this time (the O/S 3.5 and the K&B 1") now more than ever nitro outboard enthusiast need to pull together to ensure that our nitro O/B classes do not slip completely off the page. There is a conversion kit available for right hand rotation power heads and talk of others on the way.
I had rather not try to discuss our outboard issues on this or any social media platforms as I have yet to see this provide positive results. I don't profess to have all the solutions but rather I am just stating that I will be available to you and will do what is best for all of us as a group when and if needed. If you have any suggestions that will help sustain or promote any outboard classes (not just Nitro) please send it to [email protected].
