1. I thought that Spicy cut his foot on OldSchool 1's props???
2. Who else popped a Bravo besides Kenny?
3. I figured out that we traveled about 185 miles (over 4 days)this weekend and I was into the sticks alot...so that's not so bad!!

That sucks.

After further review (I added up the receipts), I burned 202.9 gallons...at $3.059 a gallon. So this year it's costing me about 3.50 a mile. That beats the heck out of $12 a mile last year!! (2 gallons a mile at cruise) Plus, I can get the $.175 VA fuel tax refund until my lift is finished and I move her over to the new home permanently

Talk about bad Luck, Picked up my 06 353 on Friday afternoon. Saturday Morning was idling through a channel which was completely blocked by fishing boats so I idled outside the channel by about 7 to 10 ft and got into some rocks! Looks like I need all new lowers and a prop repair. AHHH!!! Nothing like an insurance claim on Day #2!!

The kicker is that I've been through there 1000 times, I knew not to get to far outside, but I wanted to be the nice guy and avoid the fishermen as much as possible. Looks like I learned my lesson. I'll be buzzing the tower next time.
