Sorry for the long read but need to tell the whole story. Was out on the St Clair river a few days back before the lock down. Strong river current from the north and 15 km winds from the south cause the river to be pretty rough this day. Launched at Fawn Island ramp and headed south about 3 km where we set for the first drift. Made about 8 drifts in two hours. Picked up a couple nice Walters but the wind was picking up, river was getting rougher and the bite was slow so time to head back to the launch. Took my time but was busting waves all the way. Got to where I could turn in towards the ramp and the motor coughs and quits and wouldn’t fire again. Thank goodness for the electric bow mount. Got into the ramp loaded her up and headed home to see if I could figure out the problem. The ball was pumped hard and being that she wouldn’t fire has to be a fuel problem. Had a quick look but I’m not a motor expert so a call to Bridge Yacht Marine was my next step. Thursday last week made the trip to Port Dover. I’ve had this boat since almost new, 30 years. 16’ Doral bow rider with a 150 super six Suzuki. So after about 30 minutes I get the diagnosis, water in the fuel and not just a little bit, more than 3 liters. Fuel line was full and so were the three carbs. How in hell did that happen. Ran great for two hours. So here was the problem and it has been like this since the boat was built says the mechanic as he fixed the problem. My fuel tank overflow/vent is located a few feet back from the bow. It’s about the size of a loonie with two holes in it, one is supposed to point down and the other towards the stern. Makes good sense. Not mine. One pointed up and the other towards the bow so every wave I busted was driving water right into the tank. Never had it out in waves this rough before as I mainly only ever used it on northern lakes till this year. Who would have thought. Thanks to Bridge Yacht for the repair and she is good to go again. If your vent is near the front of your boat have a quick look it might save you some down time.
