Here's another dumb one for ya. Last year my buddies boat was on the trailer and he had it up by the hitch with the fork lift. He was lowering it down on a block with me guiding him down, when i saw some rocks on the block and tried to swipe them off. Yep, lowered the bost right down on my fingers. I quickly told him to raise it back up, but the damage was done....crush, smashed fingers and a few lost fingernails on that one.......Now thats not being and idiot, thats right up to jackass......

I learned not to let the girlfriend or my buddys have control over the lever that says port or starboard .Mine Hustler has a lever that selects which motor you want to flush.

Thats 2 impeller kits

I dont let them help anymore

The problem was, I hooked the hose to the motor on my left, then I proceded to turn around, to the dash and start the motor on the left. Left is left, right?

Just knew the was a reason for having an extra impellor kit around. Kinda thought I would need it while on the lake, not in my garage.

Hey Jerry,

Just don't forget your DRAIN PLUG once you get to the lake. Never known that to happen to anyone?
