Trolling Squam this morning when boat stalled and I smelt smoke. Turned around and lots of black rubber smelling smoke pouring out vents of my Mercury 4 stoke cover.
Grabbed fire extinguisher and opened cover .. no fire but plently of smoke. Luckily I was near Sandwich and paddled my 18 ft. Lund to beach. I stopped first car going by and a super guy gave me ride all the way back to Holderness to pick up trailer. All the wires going into an electrical box are melted, it may be electronic ignition box ??? Not sure but it's going in to dealer tomorrow..
Not many boats fishing this morning and I got Squamed in more than one way !
