I know your pain. I went out friday morning to prefish Fork before the SOT. I had a good friend with me from college and we were going to fish together for the day and just hang out. I pulled up to the spot I was going to start, came off plain, and my motor stalled out. I tried to crank it again but the fly wheel wouldn't turn. I used the trolling motor to cut across the boat lane, I just knew that we would be ran over, to some people who were also prefishing and thankfully they towed me back in. I took it to the Yamaha tent to find out that my lower unit had seized and it was an after market part and they wouldn't/couldn't fix it. SO, I was unable to fish in my own boat for this tourney. I did fish with my BIL in his boat though.
