Manaʻo wau ua hana ʻo ia i kēia ma muli o ke aloha o ka tinkering no ka mea ʻaʻole ʻo ia i kau kālā nui no kāna hana. Hoʻomaopopo wau i ke kōkua ʻana iā ia i ke kakahiaka a me ke kakahiaka nui e hana ana i nā lawnmowers, ʻoki ʻana i ka mauʻu, mālama ʻana i ka māla, a i ʻole nā ​​mea ʻē aʻe e pono ai e hoʻokuʻu ʻia e hele i ka lawaiʻa i ke awakea. I ka wā hoʻomaha loa, ua kūʻai aku koʻu kupuna kāne i kahi johnboat alumini he 16 kapuaʻi a me kahi motika Evinrude 3 hp Lightwin hou loa i kūpono e lawe i nā lua stripper a lele e lawaiʻa ma nā kapa. ʻO kaʻu mau hoʻomanaʻo mua o nā waʻa a me nā kaʻa mai kēia mau lā. Pīhoihoi wau i ka maʻalahi o ka hoʻomaka o kāna mau motika a me ke ʻano o ka holo maikaʻi ʻana. Loaʻa iā ia kahi Lawn Boy push mower i hoʻomaka i kēlā me kēia manawa ma ka huki mua aʻo ia ka mower maikaʻi aʻu i hoʻohana ai. ʻIke wau i kēia manawa ʻo kāna motoka Evinrude boat a me Lawn Boy mower motera i hana ʻia e ka Outboard Marine Corporation hoʻokahi a he ʻelua mau motera uila me nā ʻāpana like ʻole.

He kamana akamai ʻo ia a kūkulu i mau hale. Ua hoʻolālā a hana ʻo ia i kahi hoʻomoana pope ma mua o ka lohe ʻana o kekahi i kēlā mea. Ua nakinaki ʻo ia i kāna lele popa cork a mālama iā mākou āpau no ka lawaiʻa ʻana. Nui kona mahalo i nā mea hou i hoʻomaikaʻi i kona ola. Mahalo ʻo ia i kāna ipukukui Colman a me ke kapuahi āna i hoʻohana ai no ka hoʻomoana. Loaʻa iā ia kahi mekala trolling uila ʻo Silvertrol i kū mālie loa no ka lawaiʻa ʻana ma kapa. Māmā kona moku alumini hou no ke kāne hoʻokahi e lawelawe i ka hoʻoili ʻana a me ka hoʻoiho ʻana mai nā papa ma luna o kāna kaʻa lawaiʻa. A haʻaheo ʻo ia no kāna City City # 90 lele lele wīwī no ka mea ua hoʻolilo ʻo ia i ka hapa nui o kona manawa e hoʻolei i koʻokoʻo lele me ka lima hoʻokahi a me ka holo ʻana o kahi kaʻa kaʻa me kekahi. Ua manaʻo ʻo ia ua hana ʻo Mr. Coleman i kahi mea anuanu maikaʻi e mālama anuanu i kā mākou mea inu i kahi lā wela o ke kauwela, a ua hana ʻo Mr. Evinrude i kahi mīkini moku Lightwin 3-hp kupaianaha maʻalahi e lawe a kau i kāna moku.

I kēia mau makahiki he 50 koʻu, mahalo wau i nā lā maikaʻi aʻu e ulu nei. Noho mau wau i ka manawa e hāpai ana i ka moʻomeheu o ka lawaiʻa lele me koʻu makuakāne a me kaʻu mau keiki. ʻO nā lakohana i loaʻa iā mākou i kēia lā ʻoi aku ka hou, ʻoi aku ka kiʻekiʻe, ʻoi aku ka nui, a me ka hapa nui o nā mea āpau. Ua pōmaikaʻi wau i ka loaʻa ʻana a me ka hana ʻana i nā mea i hiki ʻole i koʻu kupuna kāne ke kūʻai, akā naʻe, ua nalowale kekahi mea. Lawe wau i kaʻu mau kaikamahine a me kaʻu keikikāne e lawaiʻa, a like me nā keiki i loaʻa ka manawa kūpono, aloha lākou āpau i ka hoʻokele waʻa. Ma ke ʻano ʻaʻole loaʻa iā lākou ka ʻike like me ka mana kiʻekiʻe, ʻenehana kiʻekiʻe, ʻenekini ʻehā aʻu i loaʻa ma kaʻu moku lawaiʻa i kēia lā. ʻO wau a me kaʻu keikikāne i loko o nā Scout Boy, a ʻo wau he kākāʻōlelo no ka Badge Science Merit Badge. ʻO kekahi o nā loko aʻu e makemake ai e lawe i ka poʻe mākaʻikaʻi e loaʻa ka palena he 10-hp no laila ua ʻike wau iaʻu iho e pono i kahi kaʻa liʻiliʻi. Ua ʻike kuʻu hoa aloha i ka mea aʻu e makemake ai e hana me ka poʻe mākaʻikaʻi, hāʻawi mai iaʻu i ʻelua mau mīkini liʻiliʻi i ʻōlelo ʻo ia ua ʻelemakule ʻo ia e huki i ke kaula e hoʻomaka ai lākou. ʻO kēia mau motika he 1963 Evinrude 3 HP Lightwin aʻu i aloha aloha ai no ka mea like ia me ka hoʻomanaʻo o ka loaʻa ʻana o koʻu kupuna kāne, a me ka 1958 Johnson 5.5 HP Seahorse. Ua ʻike wau he motika maʻamau kēia. ʻO kēia mau motika me kahi 1996 Johnson 15 hp i loaʻa iaʻu kahi e noho nei, hāʻawi ʻia he mea nui loa e hoʻoponopono, hāʻawi iaʻu i ka pilikia e pono ai no kahi papahana hoʻoilo hoʻoilo maikaʻi.

Ua haʻi mau koʻu makuakāne iaʻu, a hoʻomanaʻo maikaʻi wau iā ia, "I ka wā e pili ana i nā motika inā ʻākoakoa nā mea āpau a hoʻoponopono pololei ʻia a laila e holo pono ia." "Inā ʻaʻole ia e hoʻomaka a holo maikaʻi paha, a laila aia kahi pilikia e ʻike ai a hoʻoponopono a hoʻopaʻa ʻia paha." ʻO kēia kekahi o nā mea ʻoiaʻiʻo i ke ola āna i aʻo mai ai iaʻu. ʻO Spark, fuel, a me ka compression nā mea nui ʻekolu e koi ʻia e holo i kahi kaʻa kaʻa.

ʻO koʻu manaʻolana e palapala i ke kani o kēia mau motika ma ke kau ʻana i nā kiʻi a me nā wehewehe ʻana ma kēia pūnaewele i hiki ke lilo i kumuwaiwai no kēlā me kēia me ka motika like e pono ai ka hoʻoponopono liʻiliʻi a i ʻole ke kani ʻana. E helu wau i nā ʻāpana kikoʻī a me kā lākou helu helu helu aʻu e hoʻohana ai a haʻi pololei iā ʻoe i kāu mea e pono ai. Lana koʻu manaʻo e hana i kēia mau papa hana me nā mea hana maʻalahi a me ka hoʻoponopono ʻana i ka manual. Loaʻa paha iā ʻoe kekahi o kēia mau kaʻa Evinrude a i ʻole Johnson i waho e pili ana i kāu hoʻoilina a loaʻa paha. E holo paha ʻaʻole paha akā hiki ke hana ʻia i hiki ke holo maikaʻi me kahi mele piha. Hiki iā ʻoe ke loaʻa i nā ʻāpana āu e pono ai no kahi motika kahiko ma o e-Bay a i ʻole ma ka Pūnaewele i ka nui. Loaʻa iā mākou nā loulou kahi e hiki ai iā ʻoe ke kūʻai i nā ʻāpana he nui ma Amazon.com. Ma ka hoʻohana ʻana iā Amazon, loaʻa iā mākou kahi kōmike liʻiliʻi e kōkua i ke kālā kālā ʻana i kēia pūnaewele a me nā papahana e hiki mai ana. Inā loaʻa iā ʻoe kahi waho kūloko, pono ʻoe e hoʻomaʻamaʻa iā ia ma mua o kou kau ʻana ma ka loko wai a manaʻo e puhi a holo. Me ka ʻole o kahi mele maikaʻi, hiki iā ʻoe ke hōʻino i kahi hele maikaʻi ʻana a hoʻohoka ʻia ʻoe. Lawe wale ia ma kahi o $ 100 i nā ʻāpana a me kekahi hana hoʻolaʻa e holo ai kahi kaʻa moku kūwahi liʻiliʻi e like me ka mea i ka wā hou. Ua aʻo wau i kekahi o nā ʻāpana o kēia mau motera e pono e pani ʻia, ʻoiai inā mālama pono ʻia ka motika akā no kekahi manawa lōʻihi. ʻO kekahi o nā pani pani i ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi ma mua o nā ʻāpana kumu no laila ʻo ka pani ʻana iā lākou e kōkua i kāu kaʻa. ʻAʻole makemake koʻu makemake e hoʻihoʻi i kēia mau motika i kahi e hōʻike ai lākou i nā ʻāpana, akā e hoʻopau me kahi mea e hiki ai iaʻu ke hauʻoli e hoʻohana no nā makahiki he nui. Aia kekahi poʻe e hoʻoponopono i nā motika waʻa kahiko a hiki i kahi e hōʻike ai lākou i nā ʻāpana a laila hāʻawi iā lākou no ke kūʻai aku.

He kumukūʻai ke kūʻai aku i kēia mau mīkini ma kahi hale kūʻai lawelawe kūʻai moku. Ua haʻi ʻia mai wau e kekahi mau wahi i ka pono ʻole o ka hoʻopaʻa ʻana o nā motika kahiko a ua ʻoi aku ko lākou makemake e kūʻai aku iaʻu i kahi motika hou. E haʻi nā wahi ʻē aʻe iā ʻoe ʻaʻole lākou e hana ma nā motika i ʻoi aku ma mua o 10 a 20 mau makahiki paha. I ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, maʻalahi kēia mau motika i ke kani a me nā mea me ka manawa, ke ahonui, a me ka hiki i ka mīkini liʻiliʻi hiki ke kiʻi a holo maikaʻi me kahi uku liʻiliʻi. Ke hoʻopau ʻoe i kekahi o kēia mau papahana a puhi ʻoe iā ia no ka manawa mua, e hauʻoli loa ʻoe i ka ʻike ʻana ua holo pono kāu moku Evinrude a Johnson paha.

E ʻoluʻolu aloha e heluhelu e pili ana i mea e pono ai ma mua e hoʻomaka i kou papahana.
