Last weekend was the first weekend of the trout fishing season in the area that I live in. This naturally meant that all of my friends and relatives wanted to hit the lake so that they could try their hands at a little bit of trout fishing. One of my friends used opening day as an opportunity to try out his new Evinrude outboard motor when a lot of other people would be out on the lake.
He has taken his boat out on the lake a few times already to get everything working properly. He wanted to make sure his Evinrude XD100 oil was lubricating the motor properly and that everything was running well before the boat actually was launched. On opening day, he actually took the boat out onto the water and took it all the way into the middle of the lake without any problems.
