The Poor BCPC
I was prefishing on Belton yesterday and was just finishing up checking another totally unproductive stop with my co-anger. Started to get on plane and I got a long alarm from my motor. Let off the gas and shut it down. Hmmm. Tried again and it did the same thing. I then notice my water pressure was way low (but it was still peeing) so I checked the water intake and it was clear. Tried one more time and it did it again. I had plenty of oil (other possible reason for the alarm). Instead of risking big damage to the outboard, I just decided to get on the trolling motor and start the 12-14 miles troll back to the ramp. Fortunately, the Lake Belton version of The Big Lebowski took pity on me and towed me in. It was quite the trip.... got back to the ramp and started to load up and it rained all over the BCPC when heading home. When I got home I didn't put the cover on so the boat could air out and dry. Two hours later we get an absolute downpour and now it has been raining solidly for the last 18 hours and even though it is under the carport the front deck of my poor boat is soaked..... Dang. I'll have to detail her this coming week to make up for this weekend's abuse. B.O.A.T...
One bright spot is that on the way back in I called Jim Speros- THE MobileMercMan- and he is coming by my house on Monday morning to get the gear case, replace my water pump and check out the motor completely to make sure there aren't any other issues. I should be ready to go by Tuesday evening. That is customer service.....
