So, the lady and I have a pontoon boat. We bought it last year. It was in someone’s yard along the highway. It was cheap, it floated, and the engine mostly worked. It had an issue with shifting in to gear. I think I know what the problem was, but it’s a moot point now.
We had it out for the first time this year, and it was behaving poorly (as was it’s normal behavior). On our final lap around the lake before heading in, it started to lose power. I ran back and took off the engine cover to reveal this.
Yeah, chewing gum isn’t going to fix that. It ran long enough to get us close to the landing. Anyone need a non-working 55hp outboard?
