I headed out to go fishing this morning and never got to the jetties(fortunately). I was having a little throttle response prob so I decided to change out my fuel filters, then after putting it back together the darn thing would not start. I ran into Zack H at about this time at Woodys dock, nice boat btw. I got it started and idled back to the dock because it was stahling. Pulled it out of the water and dragged it to Island One Marine and they suprisingly enough immediately came out and helped me with the prob at 7am, Thanks a bunch. Anyhow, I got back on the water and ended up having intermittent power failure. Kind of like having air in the injection system. So I turned it back around fearing the worst if I tried to make it out deep. I dropped it off at Ronnies and they told me it was most likely my O2 sensor so I went ahead and left it down there with them fellas for a tuneup. I have never left my boat there before so I hope they dont gouge me too bad. They are and have been in the past very friendly and nice service ppl. Anyone have experience with them? I took the extra time I had and wondered around Roys, They are very expensive in their pricing, I will stick to online shopping. Anyhow, I chalk today up to having to pay some dues for having 12 or more trouble free offshore trips.

No Rush on the job on my end, that means it will be done quickly. They did not seem too busy though. I am going out on monday in my buddies boat from mansfield and dont plan on a trip in my boat untill 11 or 12th if it is done. I never rush mechanic shops though.

Do you make alot of solo runs out deep? I usually end up with it being me and that guy that you met hanging out in my boat today while I was getting the fuel filters. I like to at least have one rider with me to help toss a line to the rigs or pull up the anchor. of course I got one of those anchor bouys now so I dont have to worry about that kind of labor any more.
