Well I guess I was due for a trip that left me stranded in the water.:banghead It was a non productive trip to say the least. The weather was beautiful though so that's a plus. I thought I would try my hand at trolling for some cobia, I didnt have any hits and didnt see any, but I didnt really have high expectations so its all good. About 1.5 hours into the trip I shut down, pulled in lines and decided to change things up and cruise a little faster to cover more ground. Well when I started back up it wouldnt turn over, just got a grinding sound. Well it sounded like the starter, but of course I tested the battery and it was good, changed the spark plugs still the same thing. Finally I was able to wave down a nice yellow contender to see if they could help, at the same time a lifeguard on a jet ski also pulled up behind me. I was just east of the OIP if anyone on the pier today saw me this is what happened. Well luckily one of the guys on the boat jumped on and declared the starter was seized up so he gave it a few good whacks and she started up. Sometimes I wish I was a bit more mechanically inclined. :bowdownThanks to the guys in the yellow contender who gave a few minutes of their fishing time to help a brother out and to the life guards who came out to check on me also.:clap I was stressing for sure, soon after they started her up I headed back home and packed it up. Today was one of those days where I put more work into the day than what it was worth. Anyhow thanks fellows for helping me out, I know how hard it is to stop fishing in the middle of the day to help a guy out. Now I need to get this problem fixed.
