    Well folks I think its time to put the O'Dark 30 down for a while. With the engine trouble I have been having, the leak and today the left bunk fell off the trailer! Its way too much at one time. I guess its time to get back to basics and start back fishing from the bank or go deer hunting. The bad thing is I sold a former member of this site a perfetly good 90hp Evinrude for next to nothing. You know when I was thinking about selling it I thought maybe I shouldn't becouse not everyone has a backup motor. Who knew?

    Hang in there Greg. Things have a way of working out. Sometimes it costs a little more than we want before it works out but it will work out nonetheless.

    It already looks like you got a real nice offer from Team Smackdown. See what I mean?

    Thanks man. I spoke with Bruce earlier and had to turn down A dream trip with TeamSmackDown Becouse the truck has a busted Radiator hose. I wish there was a 24hr Advance Auto I'd be at Bruces front door bright and early. There will be another time.

    Chris you can always bank fish with me. I've got the whole weekend and nobody to fish with. The offer is there...... and for anyone else that wants to get out. I'm taking advantage of the family free weekend.

    In keeping with Wylicat," sounds better in a Mad Scientists voice!"

    Its ALIVE! ITS ALIVE. The O'DARK 30 lives again! And all at the cost of $0. All it took was a trip to the library to check out the Clymer manuel on my engine. I did a simple Link and Sync and took it to the ramp and she just pured like a kitten. The wierdos I bought it from had it all out of wak. It hasn't ran right since I bought it. I hope this was all it was. I have been putting it off because of Christmas and those manuels are exspensive. Who knew! Now its on like DONKEY KONG!

    All that agony and potential ulcers because you didn't have a manual. Maybe you think they are worth the price now. That link and sync is like automotive timing... very, very important. I imagine that is a good 75% to 80% of outboard problems - no manual I mean. At least you had the library to fall back on... I'm happy to hear your back on the water.
