    Keep an eye on the events calendar at your nearest cabelas. The tulalip store had a free seminar yesterday on the subject of maintaining engines.

    I hope my 9.9 hp runs OK. Haven't even had the power boat out this year. I ran the motor dry last time I used it, but failed to drain the carb bowl. I did change the motor oil, though. I do have fuel stabilizer in my gas. I'll find out soon!

    I should probably change the gear oil, too.
