I Owe My Dad A Beer And Some Wire Strippers

Recommended Posts

No questions just a story. I bought a trolling motor cheap last year at the end of the season. Being a second season boater I know nothing about these things. After lots of research I developed a game plan.

I needed a bracket and after calling a few welder and machine shops I was close but no cigar. My dad said screw calling and let's go visit some of these guys. Af our second stop we got a lead on a shop that might be able to help us. Went there and got a custom bracket for $50 cheaper than any other quote I found and 1/4 aluminum to boot.

Then came the wiring. Figured that out and wired it up today. As we were getting the wiring together my dad used a knife to strip off some plastic on the wire and cut his hand open. We bandaged it and like a boss he helped me finish the job. Called him around dinner to thank him again and he had just gotten back from emergency care. He needed 5 stitches in his thumb.

Took the boat out for an hour tonight and I'm going to love this thing. Much better then anchoring all the time or having to use paddles.

Thanks Dad I owe ya a beer and a pair of wire strippers!!!

That's a great story (except the part about your dad cutting his hand).

Nice work.

 

So when referring to that trolling motor will you be calling it "Old Bloody" ?

Good idea going local, some times you find people more then willing to help you out! Just wait for the bleeding to stop before you start drinking lol!
