Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

I am developing a new venture Rubicon Web and Technology Training ( ). The focus is two part, to develop websites for individuals and small business and to train people to effectively use technology in their everyday lives.

50 Years of the Ultimate Four-Stroke


2014 is a milestone year for Honda, with the company celebrating the 50th anniversary of the very first Honda four-stroke outboard engine, the GB30. A modest 4hp engine, it represented the noble ambitions of Honda’s founder, Soichiro Honda, to manufacture only four-stroke engines for the benefit of the environment and generations to come.

Now, with a range that stretches from the BF2.3 to the mighty BF250 – and includes the latest additions, the BF80 & BF100 – Honda Marine continues to be a leader in four-stroke outboard engine technology.

“Honda has to make environmentally-friendly products; therefore we must build four-stroke outboards,” Mr Honda said in 1964. “I don’t care if everyone is making two-stroke outboards, Honda must make four-stroke outboards.”

To keep up-to-date on all Honda’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, including a competition later in the year, visit or search #HondaMarine50Years on Twitter.
