Thread: first run

  1. #1
    Hey I took the boat out to Somerville this afternoon and yes i got a story to tell. I got to the ramp and backed it in, fired it up and then it died, gave it a couple pumps and then it wouldnt start. after about 10 swcond of cranking it wouldnt; even turn over. The negative battery cable wasn't makin a good connection. So i fixed that, pulled the plugs, shot gas everywhere, buttoned it back up and she fired right off. I made a few fast passes by the dam, pretty much the only smooth spot since the wind was out of the NE. By the way, that panther shot a little tail at full throttle, kinda suprised me. Then on the way home the truck dies on me, it has a long history of vapor lock or something of that nature. Still have yet to figure that one out but I got home after I let it sit for a little.

    Congrats on getting her running. I am in the process of getting a floating money pit myself. What kind of boat do you have?
