Been there, done that, long time ago. 1980 the boss and I blast out of the launch at Conger Bay Drive and head to Metro to meet up with some friends. About 1/4 mile short of Metro the engine stalls, and no restart. Until that time the fuel guage has worked fine, it still showed 1/2 tank, but both were empty

After taking turns paddling I decide enough is enough and jump out and start swiiming behind the boat, pushing it a lot faster than we were paddling. I got it over to the seawall just about the time the people we were meeting showed up.
Fuel gauges don't work so well when the ground wire is disconnected

Glad you made it back. I had my eye on you and was glad to see the Marine Salvage boat pull up to you.

I was the one who stopped and told you to call them.

There was alot of commotion in that part of the lake.
