Well the Sunkist scared the hell out of me this weekend. The motor sputtered twice and went dead under full power all in about a millisecond. Those of you that know Rufus' old boat know what happened next. Yes ole liveries went left and right up on to a grassy bank about 30 to forty feet. Luckily my passenger and I were not injured. The boat hit the only grassy bank on lake Greeson I think. Thanks to all of you guys that warned me before hand about my boat hooking, I had time to tell my passenger to hold on "were about to go for a ride". All is well with litle to no boat damage. I just need some insight as to why it might have died like that. We pulled it off the bank I cleaned the intake out and it fired right up and I drove it to Kirby from rock creek, with no problems or shut down.
