Snake River  King

Well I could wait enymore so I greased up the boat motor and took the jon boat down the Snake River and but the boat in, in the forest Motor started on the 6th pull and ran like I put it away last year not bad for sitting for over 6 months!! On friday I might go and put it in on the main current and run around, "cant wait for opener" cool.gif

I put about 10 miles on the river yesterday. It was 79 degrees and I couldn't resist getting out there. Had to dodge a bit of floatsam, but it was nice to open her up and cruise in the high water. The trip back downriver took about half the time, due to fast current.

Bought a new fuel line and I was trying to start the motor, wasn't working, so my 7 year old, who was waiting for a boat ride, said "Dad, I don't think the motor's getting any fuel." He was right, I had the fuel line on backwards. After that, it started on the 2nd pull. I swear it runs better now than it did last fall.

SnakeRiverKing, where do you usually put your boat in?

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
