Liking my porta bote a lot right about now... stows easy, light weight to move, planes with the 2.2 nissen outboard
, rows pretty easy with out... Stable enough for both Himself AND the dog to maneuver in and out of with out too much trouble... What's not at like?
And yeah, checking the air vent on the fuel tank
... That was my first spectacular *stupid head* lesson with outboards... Who knew?
Sorry yours turned out to be terminal...
