I was trying the get the mighty Johnson to cooperate this morning and not getting far. A lot of pulling on the rope, not much payoff. Covered in sweat, and heaving, I decided to give the other Johnson a try.
We had been told it was running rough and may need some work, but we dropped it in the barrel just to see. She fired on the third pull, and after a minor idle adjustment purred like a kitten for a half an hour.
Our outboard issues appear to be solved, and just in time for our coming fishing trip. I sure hope the fishing is as good as last year.
