Got a good deal on a lease return 30hp boat motor. Ordered a prop with a different pitch which is now on back order. Have to drop the boat off next week to switch out the motors and also have some wiring done as the new motor has a better alternator which will help more with powering electrical.

Should mention that the boat is primarily used as a fishing machine, but now with more hp, it gives us another evac option in the unlikely event it is ever needed.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
