Winter in Florida

As I’ve mentioned several times before, I have family in Miami and Naples, Florida. After the windy weather passed in Seattle, where I spent the holiday, I gave my family members a call to wish them a Merry Christmas. When I told them about the wind and power outages in the Northwest, they laughed and said, “You should have come to Florida!”

My uncle told me that it was in the upper 70s. He and my aunt were still wearing shorts and flip-flops! My uncle was even contemplating going to the store to pick up some Evinrude E-Tec to take out his watercrafts for a spin. Like I wrote yesterday, next year I will definitely be in Florida for Christmas, preferably gone fishin’.

Troubleshooting an Evinrude E-Tec Motor

The Evinrude E-Tec outboard motor enjoys popularity because of its low maintenance. The fact that it can run for 300 hours without inspections or adjustments doesn’t hurt its reputation either. Still, even the best outboard motors can run into problems, so it’s important to know how to trouble shoot.

If a problem does arise, look first for blown fuses. A spare 10 amp fuse is provided by the manufacturer so you shouldn’t have to spend a lot to replace a blown fuse. Next, check the water intake screens and also check for kinked fuel hoses. Finally, check for debris in the Evinrude E-Tec. Gunk won’t allow the propeller to turn properly.
