First outing

I took my new used boat and 1956 vintage eninrude out for the first time last weekend. Much to my surprise the outboard started on the 4th pull. We ran around the lake with no trouble at all. I was really surprised how fast the 15hp could push that 14 foot boat. Thanks for all of the input on a new outboard but I will probably run what I have until it breaks. I got pulled over by the ranger boat 5 min after leaving the dock. I am sure he watched this newbie loading up and wanted to check things out. Glad I had all the correct paperwork and gear onboard. I may go chase wipers this afternoon if the weather warms up.

1956 ? Heck, if it has not broken down by now it may never. Just do me a favor, if it last 3 more years, put it on the shelf, it's an antique!
Good luck, they don't make 'em like that anymore!
