Everyone is overlooking the true miracle here...the fact that butt crack Tiger diagnosed it on the fly...we all know his tool box consists of a butter knife, a shoe and some borrowed duct tape from Jeff...

Speaking of fly, zip yours up and get your 65mph JC rocket on the water before labor day...

I got lucky like that once. I sprung a leak on an oil cooler hose on a poker run. Before we left that morning, I had told Debbie to put some extra oil in the boat. Luckily, she had put a case in the boat! I was thinking a couple quarts. Went through eight quarts on that run.
