I made it all the way to the ski hill with the “You’re out of gas, you idiot” light on. Got a couple good fluffy runs in and did not freeze my booty entirely off. Damn it was cold.
Filled my empty tank for under two bucks a gallon.
And still got home in time to order $2200 worth of marine plywood by noon. More boats to build.
Poor fella only had them for one night and never even got to use them. (That I am aware of.)
And successfully installed the new oar stands. Still a couple more bolts to put in but the hard part is done.
