We completed the motor install on Easy Go and gave it a test run and winterizing before heading back to Cape Breton Island for the winter. The Beta Marine 14 HP engine came to life without a glitch after we had bled the system thoroughly. Ran some fresh water through the raw water system then anti freeze to make sure that Old Man Winter would be deterred in his damages.
We're keeping our yuloh for more than nostalgia. Our experience with motors has, more than once, proven that they are good as long as they are working. We won't be caught with a broken motor unable to get moving again.
Easy Go is asleep for the winter but totally prepared for next seasons travels. Looking forward to getting back on the water in April!
