Took lunch at the ramp today to enjoy the spring weather.
While there a gent launched his skiff, parked his truck, came back
climbed in, and the outboard wouldn't start. Me? I'd get out the pull rope
and manually crank it over. Not this guy. Pulls out what looks like
a small gun case, opens it and pulls out this box that looks like
a portable hard drive for a computer. Plugs a set of connectors
into the gizmo, hooks it up to his battery, and it fires right up.
What the heck was that? Walked over and asked. He's a mechanic
and that's how he jumps vehicles that are dead on the road.
He says no problem getting 6 or 7 jumps out of the gizmo.



Never seen one of those before.
Got home and did some on line reading.
Who knew? Itty bitty jump start kits. :D
