Actually the motors are fine -- I just lost the lower unit I rebuilt last week.

You see, I ordered parts from some jackass with a hangover on Tuesday. He left out part of the order (a clutch dog), so we had to try to make do with the old one. It didn't work. The clutch dog let go when we were catching some big air going across Ponchartrain, and it popped out of gear and wouldn't re-engage.

What about you guys -- ya'll catch any big air while tied up at the Prop Stop? (See linked thread, page 12, post 473: http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...&page=12&pp=40 )

If I owned the place, and I had to pay extra to have the garbage hauled out, that's exactly what I'd do. I'd just adjust the prices to cover it.

Not directed at you Julio, I know you're a good guy, but as far as that last comment, "she didn't mean to offend you". it reminds me of what my dad always said to me when I said I didn't mean to. He'd say, "YOU GOT TO MEAN NOT TO, BOY!".

Well if Cameron bought the food and beer there and ate it inside she would have to take out the trash anyway.

Blind River Bar does sell Worm Buckets but they aren't near as good as the real thing.
