It was a near perfect day Wednesday to head offshore, as the winds were light and conditions a bit more pleasant for fishing. That was the plan.
We had our offshore boat geared up and ready for an early departure and headed out to the dock around 6:30 a.m. When I turned on the boat lift, only a humming sound came from the motor and then the breaker closed. How unlucky can one be to wait and plan for a great opportunity for offshore fishing only to find that the boat lift won’t work!
