Just wanted to say thanks to the Captain and Crew of "Tight Lines" for providing us a tow today. Our motor quit running about a mile out from Rudee and we asked for help on 68, several boats responded an offered there help. Again, thank you "Tight Lines" for the tow back to Owls Creek. Goes to show you that there are still good folks willing to help a fellow fisherman.

I was fishing with my nephew on his 23' Hydra Sport with a 200 Yamaha HDPI and at cruising speed the motor died like it was starving for fuel. Tried to restart and nothing. Checked the water separator to see if water was in the system and it looked good. We finally got it to start and there was a loud knocking sound like something came loose, so we immediately shut down and called for help.

Glad to hear you made it back OK. Sounds like a thrown rod...same exact situation happened to a friend of mine with the same motor.
