JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Hi Pete,

If the electrodes were knocked off, that cylinder had detonation issues going on inside of it. Are you familiar with what detonation is?
