    I had to put a sticker in my boat about a year after I bought it about monoxide gas. My problem is my main is so loud you really cannot troll with it, that's why I have the T-8 to troll with. I do not drag anyone on skis either, however I have rescued some folks having trouble with their boats and one dude in a tube setup to shore, blown by the wind at Pyramid...….Jetspray

    Carbon Monoxide Reminder

    After an incident on the Delta this weekend I thought I would post this reminder for everyone. Many associate this with closed cabin boats, but that’s not always the case. On Saturday the wind was dead calm and the passengers on the rear deck were overcome by CO as they trolled the SJ. The captain, who was below deck piloting this larger vessel (26ft Bayliner) was also overcome with it. Fortunately, on of the passengers was able to get off a May Day call before passing out and the first vessel to respond had US Military Veteran Medics on board who rendered aid until USCG could arrive. All three on board were transported to the hospital for O2 therapy and observation.
