Hey guys, I finally had a chance to go fishing the other day and on the third pull, my cord broke. I have an 89 evinrude 4 hp on a 13 Gheenoe. Any tips on fixing this before I pull it apart? Also, where should I get a new rope from? Does it have to be a special "marine" rope?

Not hard. YouTube vid out there to watch if you look.
The rope needs to be tougher than the standard paracord.
I get mine at the local lawnmower repair shop.

Brett, thanks for the help and more importantly just giving me confidence to do it. I took it apart and the recoil stayed in place so it was just a matter of putting on a new cord. Wasn't tough at all and it's good as new (for an ole 89 evinrude ;D)

Thanks again!!!
