    Well instead of spending my day fishing, we spent ours broke down on the river. Bad sending unit AGAIN = oh crap 2.5 miles from the ramp. It was great scenery on the drift down I might add, stayed along the bank the whole way down, and had to call cincycat to bring us some gas which thankfully he did, props bud you saved the day, after that and the engine not running right, called it a day, spent around 4 hours wasting time stranded, its bad when it says you have over a 1/4 of a tank then goes dead from being bone dry....Really dissapointing was looking foward to it all week....oh well, won't trust that sending unit again, and I learned to always add alot more fuel than you think you will need....:embarassed:....well off to Gatlinburg, we'll try it again when i get back, hope everyone else had a better day out than I...:cool2:
