First Impression

UPS showed up right on time with my Defender order....

Well... let me say first that the Tohatsu 3.5 4 stroke is a solid engine and we're excited about it. I should also say that 41 lbs is heavier than one might expect. I'm fine with lifting it over my head but it is not something to look forward to in a fair chop while aboard the dink. Jayme is already hesitant but "thinks she can do it." We always think in worst case scenarios and "If i were the only one capable" situations. We talked about a simple block system from the boom being relatively easy if she had to. I think it will be fine but the real first test will be this weekend on the way to Cape Lookout.
