Maiden Voyage

If it looks like we're having fun around here it's because we are.  Don't get me wrong there has been plenty of hard work along the way and I have the bum shoulders to prove it.  Sometimes though we really let our hair down.
This was the first time Alan has been able to use his dad's old Evinrude Lightwin motor since it was tuned up a few years ago.  My brother, David, has graciously given us his old beloved BassTender.  It is a tiny little thing that is only rated to up to 6 hp and hasn't seen water in a long while.  The Ace hose cap seemed to work and there was just a 1/2 cup of water in the stern when we finished playing around for the evening.

Alan said he thought we'd reached a new "white trash" limit but that was before we actually got the vessel out on the pond.  I think it is pretty awesome and the "necks" would think it much to sophisticated.  We keep talking about putting a motor mount on the dock.  Now that would be "White Trash" but damn it'd be funny.  Don't worry we'll take video.
