spun it nicely. We should get the pull start and regular electric start motors in early march. The one with the self contained battery will be a couple of months more.
I'm getting more and more sold on the idea of a Lehr. Not having to worry about fuel getting old in an outboard
that might sit for a while between uses is a real plus.
And, the easy starting. Some days I thought I was going to pull my arm out starting my gas outboards when they decided it was a day they didn't feel like starting.
I'm going to the Gulport MS boat show
in April. I'm hoping someone will be there with one to actually get to look at one.
