Jetboat that was rescued at Port of Anchorage
Posted by jrogers on Jul 11 2005
I was wondering if any of you had some insight into this, or saw what really happened. They said the boat stopped and could not be restarted, which is the classic reason to have a spare kicker. The thing that has me curious is that the guy says he ran his motor for 1/2 hour in the parking lot before launching it. I don;t think there is any water supply in the parking lot, so was he just sitting there dry running it on the trailer? I cannot imaging he would tie up the boat ramp that long with it on the trailer in the water. If this is the case, I would think that he overheated the motor, and did some serious damage before he ever launched. Any thoughts on this?

Here is the article for reference:
