After battleing overheating for weeks I finally got the motor fixed. (No more idling around all day)

first changd the water pump impeller, next the thermostat, Not the problem. Finally took the motor apart and cleaned the water channels. FIXED

Guess what was stopping the water flow? ZEBRA MUSSELS inside the engine. If you leave your boat in the water be sure you tilt the motor up all the way when not in use.

Work was done by Steve (Lain's Boat Motor Repair 214-517-0047) Great job and very reasonable price.
Steve has a terrific mobile shop and will come to you to do the work.

He also works on cars.

OK Guy, now we can fish again. (And I get to listen to you complain about my boat handling)
Funny, no one else complains.

The reason no one else complains is that they are just trying to be kind to an old fart. And since I'm a card carrying member of that club, I don't have to. But it is good to know that you can take your 'barge' further than a hundred feet away from your slip OMG

You may be right. We may be old and slow but we sure as heck know what to do when we get there.

Uh... what was the question again?

But if the fish are stacked only a hundred feet from the slip, what's the problem?

Actually Rudy, we don't have to get out of the slip at all to catch fish this year. We have been wearing some good fish out.
