Failed Shift Switch

Took the boat to Keystone today. Backed into the water and nothing happened when I turned the key. Trouble shooting has found that the shift switch in the single lever control unit. Started looking for a replacement and the result is nothing. The parts are discontinued. So, I am looking for an appropriate replacement part and or if I can make something. Maybe a couple of micro switches on a plate. Not sure. Will have to work on making something up.

Boating at Skiatook today

Finally got the Norseman back in the water today. Took out some friends and the girls and we had a great time. Everyone rode the tube. Boat ran fine as well. Met the OHP and was inspected. Minor registration problems. Guess I will be putting the numbers on again. No big deal. Troop W of the OHP does a great job keeping us all safe out on the water.

Month Gone no Boating

Well after all but living on the boat during the first week of June, I have not had her back in the water. However, I hooked up to the hose today and fired her up. She lit right off and all was well. This coming weekend the plan is to head up to Skiatook lake.
