"9. Stbd shift cable broken-came home with stbd engine fwd only -replacement cable on order"
In a huge plug for twin engines, my shift cable broke at the first overnight anchorage on a solo 4 day fishing trip. I left the stbd engine in fwd and continued fishing, including changing locations and re-anchoring throughout the next 3 days. Then I came home on both engines and docked on the port engine only. If I needed stbd fwd, I could start the stbd engine in short bursts. As it turned out, it wasn't needed.
Back into the slip with a swish! Nothing but net.
Got my new 16 ft cable from Amazon yesterday for less than $50 and my 300A fuse arrives tomorrow, so I'll be heading back for repairs as ASAP. With any luck, we'll be fishing again in a week.
