18 years old.....I'm idling out of the Kenosha harbor which is pretty long. First run of the spring. I'm in my Dads 18 Donzi and feel like a stud.
I'm approaching open water when it dawns on me the boat sounds about like a Ski Nautique. Pretty quit for thru hull exhaust.
I walk back and open the engine hatch and see I'm about to sink the boat. It's then I realize the exhaust petcocks are still open from the winter.
So much for feeling like a stud......
