Day 28 Sun Sept 8

day 28 Sun

We are still here at dock at Metropolis. Macabe marine person
came down yesterday, we pulled boat out to parking lot and he
worked on motor, adusted float in carb, etc. then relaunch and ran
it . was better, did not kill when throttle open, but did not run
well either. he left, so we pulled back to ramp. called another
person who has offered to take boat to a mercury dealer in Paducah,
so will do that tomorrow.

did have some entertainment last nite as local kids use ramp as a
hill for toy 4 wheelers see video if I get it up.

    STAN, I am sure you did this but, Did you try a higher octane gas, and plenty of dry gas !! as you know the gas floats on water,! We used to have this problem at the gas stations, also, hot weather will affect (moisture) and your gas may have too much ethanol in it !!l ULTRALIGHTS WILL NOT FLY BECAUSE of the ethanol in the gas !! Just a speed bump, have a great rest of the trip !!……. John hatfield
