    Did you pull a "JJ" and have to jump in the water after a motor, john? Did you save the motor? Hope things worked out. Glad you're safe....and warm now I hope:wink:. Semper Fi.

    Johnson/Evinrude motor clamp bolts are aluminum. If you over tighten them they will strip. If the tail of your motor gets high centered while launching the boat off the trailer, the motor comming off that transom (transom less than 2 years old).
    Mat, see thread "delaware river".
    John please do not try to tighten up the motor clamp bolts. I'll come up in a few days and we'll make a lever to hold the motor competely out of the water when launching.

    The difference between a Yellow Cat and a Channel Cat is how much coffee you soak your dough bait in.
