Default Watch Out!! The Skeg Eating Monster is back!!!!

The SkegEater is back!!! He was in Virginia over the weekend in the Richmond area. He has refined his techniques and can now strike without the boat owner even knowing it until after pulling the boat out of the water.















Disclaimer: Sorry about your luck James It could have been worse and at least no one got hurt. This is just too good to let go.

Couldn't tell you Nick. I just hijacked the pics from the AT prop testing thread. He said that he didn't know until pulling the boat out!!!

Jeez! We had about 10 boats out, and two had "issues"! Here's t500hps (Russ) spark plug. Any ideas?

And I've got a nasty ticking that I need to work on...
