Dead Engine, How to get home without paddling

girls-boat-paddle-lake-Favim.com-485699I have had a few times where I have lost an engine on a trip.  I usually have 2 engines n the boat so I can limp home on one engine.  If you have a single engine boat, getting back to port could be a problem.  Always make sure you have a generator on a single engine boat and also get a couple of electric trolling motors.  If you lose the engine, fire up the generator and use the trolling motors to get to safety.  It may not be a quick way of getting home but it sure beats paddling.
