Well after a couple years in storage while I hung out in the desert my boat finally got drug out serviced and fired up! My brother in laws finally realized I had a boat sitting there and asked my wife if they could borrow it. She said sure as long as you get it tuned up and running right. I paid for parts of course but it got a new steering cable, water pump rebuild, new plugs, new battery etc. They dropped it in the lake yesterday and ran it for a couple hours, apparently the marine stabil poured in the tank 2 years ago kept the 35 gallons of fuel in good shape. It fired right up as soon as they turned the key after installing the new battery!
Too bad I am not home and using it myself but I am still stoked that it is out and on the water! They are going to put it in the river today and run it for a while. If that goes well then the wife and oldest boy are going to go out on it with her brother later in the week.
