That Ring neck snuck up on me, came just behind some teal I was watching and gave me the shot. Didnt really want it, would have rathered the teal.
Also had a dumb ass attack this morning. I moved my fuel tank under the bow and ran hard line under the floor back to the motor. Yesterday was the first day I had ran it since I did this. It ran great. This morning, not so much. So as I am pumping the ball with my foot as I drive it dawns on me, open the vent on the tank. Sure enough, problem solved.
Gotta love those no cost fixes, except for the stinging forehead from the hand smack!
Your right about that. I wasnt letting it hold me back though. I wad pumping the hell outta the bulb just cruising along.

Did you figure out the problem before, or, after, your leg started to cramp up?
Oh I only went about half a mile. I was going past our other blind waving at my uncles while i was stomping the hell outta the bulb. It was about then that it dawned on me.Paints a picture in my mind. I can see myself doing the same thing!!!!
Sorry to be laughing at your expense!!!!!!!!
Last year I couldnt get my boat off the trailer on morning......
It was still strapped at the rear.
This is why I setup a SOP at the top of the ramp, before queuing up to the ramp.
1: insert bung
2: remove strap
3: open fuel tank vent
4: Prep lines
5: key in ignition, if required
6: Try to remember not to forget to unplug the trailer lights, for some reason, I forget this one 60% of the time
7: Back the boat into the water, attempt to start the motor, if it starts, good, unhook bow strap, back off the trailer. If it will not start, cursing like a sailor,go back to the staging area & troubleshoot the problem while cursing like a sailor!
I learn this when I worked for a Co.that provided safety boats for state & Fed. bridge jobs, I backed the boat into the water, parked the truck, only to find I HAD NOT PUT THE BUNG IN, UN GOOD,lesson learned!
