Well man and I took off to Garrett Lake this afternoon.|
This is our third trip in the boat.
The first two trips were pretty much hitch free.
Got there about 2:00, got everything settled and man backed me down the ramp.
Battery was only at like 61% and she drug a little but the motor fired up fine.
Got her going good and let the idle go down a bit then slid it in reverse.
Hmmm, put it back in neutral and then back into reverse and gave it quite a bit of gas.
Put it in forward and tried to jump the truck, nothing.
Went ahead and pushed it off the trailer and fished for about an hour and a half then went back to the ramp.
Got it on the trailer without TOO much trouble and pulled it out.
Took the cover off and just as I suspected the linkage had come loose.
Looks like it is gonna be a PAIN to reach the part that actually puts the motor in gear to get it around to where I can connect it to the other bracket thing.
Could be worse.... I am sure eventually it will be too.
Man got one bite but the fish was so small he couldn't even tell it was on the big deep crankbait and it got off at the boat.
I didn't even get a nibble.
Great afternoon though.
