Boy! oh.. boy! Did we have a time yesterday (Sat 6-2). Well my nephew and I set out for another fishing adventure this weekend. Everything was going well, until we put the boat in the water. Let me give you an idea of what we have here. We have a small 15ft fiberglass fishing boat /w a 9.8hp Mercury outboard and a Motor Guide Trolling motor. We launch the boat attempt to start the lil Mercury outboard. It started right up after to pulls of the cord and the darn thing reved up really high so we let it sit in nuetral for awhile until the motor settled down. Ok... my nephew was operating the motor and when he put the thing in gear, the freaking motor raised up and off of the transom rest and off she goes into the water. I'm like WTF!? How did that happen!? My nephew grabbed the motor by the gas line and pulled it up out of the water before it sank to the bottom. We put the darn thing back onto the boat and she wont hit a lick now. So anyways... we trolled around /w the lil MotorGuide and caught some pretty decent fish.
