A Honda 2hp 4-stroke.

It was immersed, inverted for about two-hours all told.

Luckily it was in fresh water. It only required some drying out and a couple of oil changes to get it running again. I had it inspected and it was given a clean bill of health. Must be good Karma!

I rarely use the damned thing, but when you need it, you need it!

Last week I thought that it was pooched. It wouldn't start. This time I actually opened the fuel line and everything. I gave up pulling the cord and rowed to shore where we went for a walk along the beach. As I was walking along I felt something in my pocket. I reached in and pulled out the clip for the kill switch. Apparently that needs to be in place for the motor to engage!
