Everything seemed perfect. Oops, better check the trailer lights. Perfect, ready to go.
Out the door at zero dark thirty. Hop in truck - dead. Lights still switched on. Got 'er jumped and off I go.
Just about ready to back the motor into water when it dawns on me. NO PLUG. Then it further dawns on me, I know exactly where it is - back at home. Luckily, another captain was right behind me and had a spare. (I had a spare once - maybe 18 years ago - couldn't find it. Probably rusted away.) Set up at the ship canal, trolled for a while, then the thermos of coffee hit my bladder. Worst screw up of the day. NO PEE PAIL....
Caught some fish, lost some fish so it's game on from here.

Necessary equipment for old captains like me who have shrivelled equipment.

Lol mike...that’s what the first trip out is all about get the rust and kinks out.
It's better to ask forgiveness than for permission.
