Since I take friends and family members out fishing regularly, I try to make sure that my boat is always ready to go. I know that sometimes things can happen and motors can break down, but I try to keep this from happening as much as possible. I maintain my motors well and use quality oil to keep them running a lot better all of the time.
Since I know that something could still happen, I make sure that my boat is always equipped with more than one motor. The second motor is a good back up just in case something happens to the first one. I keep the motor ready with Evinrude outboard oil and a supply of gasoline so that this motor can get us home if something happens.
