When I first decided that I would buy a boat, my friends laughed at me. They didn’t really seem to understand why I would need a boat since I had only ever fished in the lakes and rivers that were closest to my home. Since none of these allowed motor boats, they didn’t see why I would need a boat at all if I kept fishing the way that I was fishing.
Of course, it made a lot more sense to them when I told them that I was going to start fishing in the bay that was an hour’s drive from my house. I bought a smaller boat with a Yamaha 2 stroke outboard attached to the back of it. With a bit of gasoline and some Yamaha 2M oil, I was ready to start fishing out on the bay.
