Default Thanks for the tow! Baja boat-Toms River

While testing my race boat in the Toms River on Monday night we blew the drive. A guy in a 25-26' Baja with his wife and kids towed us to a nearby ramp. He also refused a little stippend ($) we offered. I don't know your name but THANK YOU!!!

Very cool. Here is my advise. return the favor when you can to who ever needs it.

I have a similar story where on the 4 th july I got a flat tire only 5 miles from my destination. The Funkin lugs were recessed and you couldnt get a wrench on it. So as I was trying to ratchet up that axle to get my boat to the launch and off the trailer and a guy comes buy and was wearing some $300 jeans a $75 white shirt and $200 designer shoes and winds up climbing under my trailer and helping me out. I was very greatful. His story was 4 days earlier he blew a bearing on his trailer only 20 miles from where I was and noone would help him. Until a back yard mechanic stopped by and repaired his hub and charged him not hardly anything more than the parts. He vowed at this point to help anyone else out there that he passed and here i was. I have yet been able to help the next guy out but thats the plan.

Pay it forward. BTW if you havnt seen the movie Pay it forward go rent it,
