14-JUN-03- ME, THE MOTHER-IN-LAW, AND LITTLE SQUIRT



Saturday 14-JUN-03. My wife's parent's were up for a visit so on saturday I took my mother in law Vivian out in Little Squirt for a ride.

We left in the afternoon from Glenwood dock and went out towards the end of the outflow for about 45 minutes. We were nearly at the opening to Gander Lake when the engine conked out.

I thought it was probably low on gas and refilled the tank. It refused to restart. I again had to use the electric engine to get back. Vivian couldn't get over the difference. We were shouting to be heard when the gas engine was going, but you could hardly hear the electric at all. The prop whirling in the water was the loudest part. We also were going about the same speed with both. At least that is how it looked. I need the engine to run consistently a set distance to get the speed and so far it has refused to do this.

All in All Viv said she had a great time and that was the main thing.
