I HEAR YA !!!! i was cruising around in my off brand boat all weekend having a great time, until I saw an apache launching, so i headed to the marina and put the boat away.

i couldn't bring myself to face the embarrasement of having an off brand in the presence of the elite.

That's funny chit right there. I would have done the same thing since I only have a 36

It doesn't matter what you have as long as you're floating.

Sorry to hear about your luck We were there two weeks ago at SOTW when we blew a brand new tranny. Luckily it wasn't our fault, it was some rigging that was never done right from the go. It's never fun going back in on one engine and putting it on a trailer in high winds.... Hope your boat is running soon and you are back on the water. It's never easy when it breaks.

Best of luck
