|"The Other Johnson"|
I had been using the 93 Johnson for a couple of months by then and was pleased as punch with it. So the newer motor just sat in our garage, then in the pole barn. I didn't give much thought too it. So this year on Sunday, June 2nd the older Johnson broke down. My hope was that it would be a quick fix and I would be up and running in no time. Pete was coming up the next weekend and he would be able to fix it if that was the case. That wasn't the case. A part had to be ordered and Pete lives in Lake City in SE Minnesota. I was so depressed out about it not being a quick fix I just shrugged off Pete's suggestion that we get the other Johnson and put it on. Pete went back home and I was catching eyes at Mille Lacs at Eddy's Jetty, so things were OK my world. My brother Todd got back from his two-week long family trip to Alaska the last week of June. It became clear during that week that trolling motor only fishing wasn't cutting it.
With Todd and Steve both up here over 4th of July week. We got the motors switched out on the 3rd. The maiden voyage was a success and now hopefully we are good to go on "My Other 25hp Johnson."
