Good Info
by Robert from Eatonton, Georgia on December 28, 2013
This is a good book but I would like them only do the engine size and then go to the next engine size break it down into a book covering that engine size and all info pertaining to that engine and that engine only. I think it would sell and would be easier to understand and be more helpful. But all around good book.

Just what I needed
by Timothy from Morgan Hill, California on July 10, 2013
It has all the info and plenty of photos and illustrations. It's gotten me right up to speed on the stern drive for my new (old) boat. My only complaint is that since this one book covers so many models you have to skip around and ignore a lot of sections and illustrations as they don't pertain to you. I wish it was a 3-ring binder so I could simply remove the parts I don't need!

Lifesaving Manual
by Charles from Norfolk, Virginia on March 17, 2013
I have a 1989 Four Winns 225 Sundowner. This is my first boat and I have a lot of unanswered questions, especially about the OMC Stern Drive. This manual is well organized and I appreciate the labels that tell me which maintenance/repair items are easy, moderate or difficult. It helps me decide which ones to undertake and puts me in the right frame of mind as I start a job. My only beef with this manual is that it covers so many engines that sometimes it hard to track which instructions pertain to mine. None the less, it will save me many times over.

Boat Motor Repair Manual Online 1 Year Subscription - Seloc
by Teddy from Markham, Ontario on July 31, 2014
Topics well organized. Easy to locate subjects of interest. Good and concise materials with pictures for illustration. Problem with difficulty to capture materials on printout, no bookmarks and indexes. You need to familiar with topic arrangement. Once you get that, then it is easier to navigate the online book.

The information you need no matter where you are...
by Steven from Toronto, Ontario on July 26, 2014
When I conduct repairs on older engines that are no longer directly supported by the manufacturer I tend to be on site and at the dock. All I need is my laptop and tether to my cell phone for data and I can access the reference information I need to troubleshoot practically any motor on the spot - without carting along a pile of manuals. Seloc is an important component in my mobile repair kit.

Good stuff for a full restore
by Mike from El Cajon, California on December 25, 2013
I really like the product. Its full of information. I have only one issue, the parts page isnt very friendy. There should be a drawing of all the components then the list of parts below so you can pick them out easier. Other than that, the site is great. Diagrams are very good. Access was instant to the site as advertised. Mike

by Daryle from Mounds View, Minnesota on October 19, 2013
This is the second time I have ordered a Seloc online subscription. First was on my eighty hp merc and now on my OMC cobra 4.3 lt. Within three hours of using the manual, I saved two to three hundred dollars repairing my stater and winterizing my unit. Thanks again.

disappointing quality
by Christophe from st-Jean-Baptiste, Quebec on July 27, 2013
I buy this manual because I rebuilt a Mercury engine and I wanted the torques and the specification in first. In second, I wanted all the step to rebuilt. But I'm really disappointed because the manual is not well done like a real manual. I don't now if the real Seloc manual are better but I am disappointed by the online manual. We need more picture for rebuilt!!!

Vary informative but it's not 100% model pacific
by Matthew from Athens, New York on July 01, 2013
Vary imformative manual and it has given me the procedures that I needed to perform repairs on my 1973 65hp Evinrude triumph outboard. I gave it a 4 star because I don't think it is a one modle manual. It has late model and early models combined in one manual and I was hoping for more of a O.E.M original for 1973 models 65372/65373 only. I just noticed pictures that are not for my outboard.but other than that it's worth the money for a year subsection and you can just print as you go. I would recommend Seloc to any boat owner or mechanic.

Good Source for Quick Information
by Alan from Austin, Texas on October 15, 2012
For anyone that has some experience with mechanical troubleshooting and repairs, this manual is comprehensive and very good for getting quick information. I had no trouble finding all I needed to know for my Force 120 carburetor rebuild, and I didn't have to wait for a book in the mail. I had no problems with any of the pictures, the navigation was clear and easy, and there are good troubleshooting tips. If you are planning on a motor overhaul, get a paper book, it will simplify your information and give you an on bench shop reference ... other than that this manual will work just fine for parts identification and replacement procedures. As far as torque specs go, they are there for many things but not all, use common sense and don't forget you are working with Aluminum parts. If you are needing comprehensive torque tables, find and buy the paper book.

by Scott from Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania on September 27, 2011
there was supposed lots of pics in the online manual. I got more information off the internet with google search. There wasn't so I went ahead and spent more money on the Seloc printed manual. I feel I wasted my money purchasing the online manual. The paper manual was great and very helpful.

Online Repair Manual
by Tracy from Milford, Ohio on September 07, 2011
The online version of the repair manual is somewhat difficult to navigate through, it would be much better as a PDF file in whole instead of broken into pieces or at least a choice between the two. Not all of the remove and replace instructions include torque specifications. Information contained in the manual seems to be pretty good as far as instructions are concerned. I believe given the choice between the online manual and a hard copy book I would choose the book instead.

Perfect for basic information
by Jason from Portland, Oregon on March 28, 2011
I ordered this online manual and had access to the information I need almost instantly. I know very little when it comes to mechanic work, but it gave me what I needed to fix my engine. The information provided was pretty basic so don't expect much if you are doing some complicated repairs. However, if you just need to know where parts are located and other basics procedures, then it is money well spent.

by Joseph from Winnipeg, Manitoba on August 10, 2010
I was very disappointed with this repair manual. There is no information that I could use. Very generic. No drawings of the engine components, no procedures for removal, no troubleshooting topics, etc, etc. I really don't understand how anyone can give this product a good review. Sorry iBoats but I will be very careful spending money at your site again.

Almost Excellent
by Christopher from Seneca, South Carolina on May 20, 2010
I was able to login easily and found exactly the schematic I needed for my engine. Browsed other areas(maint sched parts) and found the information pricing correct and timely. I would have given it 5-stars, but the .pdf files are sometimes hard to read. If you enlarge them you lose the detail you may need (specifically wiring color codes- (difficult to see on most dwgs, I guess.)
