How did I get my first real fishing boat ? Part 3 (Rolling The Boat On The Streets)
drama was still on. I needed to put all together, and when I did I was not sure
that was going to start. Got a big recycle bin, filled with water and put the
motor in. Cranked and cranked for a good half hour and nothing. I decided to
take top part off and start the motor with my drill. After cranking the motor
for about 5 minutes, I was very happy that finally was working!!! Finally I could
say that my investment was ready to hit the water!!!
the first time I transported the boat got, I had it on top of my SUV and I did
not find it very user friendly. It was okay but the process was not fast enough
and alone it would just a question of time to have the vehicle scratched.
live literally 600 yards from the water, I decided to try to haul the boat
somehow. I was looking for some solutions and then finally I came across a
kayak dolly, strong enough to hold the weight.
The idea was simple: get the boat from the backyard and move to the driveway, put all
the fishing gear inside and the attached the motor, safety equipment and attach
the dolly to the stern of my little blue boat. Ready to hit the road?.
was me on the street hauling my boat by hand in the little dolly. People
walking by, driving by and even in their houses they were looking at me as if I
was from another planet ? but at least they had a smile in their faces. I am
100% sure that they were thinking that I was nuts ? they were not far from the
under the spring sun, finally I got the water accompanied by two of my kids. Took off the
dolly and put inside the boat. We paddled a little bit and then I decided to
start the motor. For my surprise, the motor started at once and we had a good
time in the Ottawa River not having really an obligation to fish. That was
could be considered one of the most now and angler and boater. Just needed to
catch a fish with my new toy to prove it? That history is in the next blog?
