With the talk of saltwater flyfishing boats, what are your thoughts on auxiliary power on small boats for Puget Sound? Are backup motors a good safety item or just more to go wrong? When I had a two stroke outboard with two carbs, the two carbs meant that the engine would still run with one carb fouled. With the new engines, fuel injection is more common. The new engines are extremely reliable, but ..........are kicker engines a worthwhile item on small boats in Puget Sound?
