maiden voyage on my Estuary...finally
  
Tomorrow morning I'm going to take out my, new to me David Clark Estuary out for its first run on a local lake. After buying it in February/March this year, and letting it sit until last weekend, I had to pop of the carb and clean it to get it to run. I think the main jet was clogged, but that's all set now. I'm planning to run it up and down the lake to burn up some gas, and check out a few new spots for geese. If the ramp is not to crazy, I'll try to take a few pictures.

I hope your not trying to burn up the gas that fowled your carb to start with. LOL. Dump it in your vehicle!

I couldn't be happier with how the motor ran, and how the boat rides in the water. The boat has a 2 stroke 15hp Yamaha, and I was pleasantly surprised with how well it pushed the Estuary. I did burn through the old gas. The gas didn't go bad and turn to Varnish in the carburetor, a jet must have been clogged. The motor ran great and never skipped a beat I am thrilled.

A big thank you to Scott. this boat is everything you said and more thank you
