Rob Missed you Sat. We got to the prop stop about 2:30 or so and left there about 5 or 5:30 then got a rope stuck in the prop.
Sean we were there.On the North end of the peir at the prop Stop . I never got off the boats ,just jumped from one to the other .

They didnt get the drives, My buddy went back Sunday morn and got them , but the other stuff was gone allready.The police have the boat now

That sounds like a good idear as long as it doesent stinck to the prop threads .
strip, put grease on anything you dont want it to stick to, a wire wheel on a drill will clean it off no problem.

Why do the police have the boat? Cause if the accident or the theft of some parts?

I got lucky and got a spot and backed up to the dock and we just chilled out on the boat and had a good time.

Does not sound good for the driver. Just wish the best for everyone involved.

You can order a new key if you still have the number. If not, the easiest way is to take a chisel and hammer. Hit the outer ring straight in from the rear, and the outer ring will break in two. You can the remove the brass nut with vise grips or pliers.

Well I called Mcgard and told them what happened ,and about the thread I started on how to get the lock off .They said this was very rare that the lock nut teeth break off and not the key's teeth.The are sending out a new lock set under warranty.I thought that was pretty nice of them.Another company that stands behind there product

Thanks Mcgard
