OK, I'll admit it. I changed a guys impeller out in Party Cove a few years ago. He was about 25miles from his dock and had about 12 people on the boat. He was very appreciative and gave me and my girlfriend drinks all day. I ran into his dad (the boats owner) a week later and he offered me $200 for my work. I turned down the cash but let him cover my bar tab for the night.
So I guess it's not all bad.
