My uncle has been out of the hobby for over a decade, and decided to return with a Lanier Mariner. The ringed ST engine hand-started easily during run-in, but became a bit balky when the water was in sight.
Throws were too high, trims were off, sun was glaring, but it came back in one piece under its own power.
(no wood ticks were harmed during filming, unfortunately)
