Running with 4 other boats at 50 mph and motor hit the rev limiter. Lost foward gear, only 30 hours on rebuilt upper drive!! Had to be towed about 5 miles by Mr. and Mrs Wigginout, and of course they had their digital camera.

In my case, you can't break anything when you're baby is sitting all by it's lonesome in a rack while I contemplate the weather from inside of an office.

well i didn't get to boat this weekend.. We had to stay home to move my sister into school... I did alot of lawn work ( that we haven't done cause we have never been home a weekend) got drunk while trimmiing the bushes, swiped over one bush and the little gas powered SOB cut through the damn air conditioner lines now I am known as the "****faced gardner" with the parents LOL! then i proceded to mow the lawn... jumped on the ole JD and mowed like a crazy SOB with a beer in each hand.. eventully it was bound to happen... I fell right off don't ask LOL! I just want to go boating now.. I hate lawn work LOL!! only 3 more days and I am up at the lake.. 4 days of gas burning YEAH BABY!!

While towing home after a dayfull of boating yesterday, just as I got to my house, I heard a noise echoing from the houses I passed, and I looked back to see smoke pouring from my trailer. I lost the center tire, it must have been underinflated. The stupid thing is I had the boat with me, and put air in my truck tire that has a slow leak, and I didn't check the trailer tire pressure, I looked at them, had the tire pressure guage in my hand, and they all looked fine, so I just hopped in and left. Had I checked them, I would probably not need a new tire now. I took it off and there were no nails or cuts in it, it just looks like it melted. Classic case of underinflation.... What's the old saying, an ounce of prevention.....
