Wrong side of a marker, tried to back out and backed into a rock.
Damage: props seemed ok, skegs a little scuffed up. At least thats how it felt in the water after a few beers.

Attitude Adjuster,
Where on the Lake were you? Ive found "never back up works better" just go forward (slowly) with drives up. Did you hear about the NASWA Searay in the Witches over the weekend? Did some major damage from what I understand. Its a MVYC now.

mopower, I was at the hole in the wall, and at the time I was looking for the NASWA boat (approx 5:00) my buddy was with it shooting film for NBC. He had the boat that had Ryan Newman on it during the race. They gave me bad directons to get to them. So I put my boat away and went up to my place, about 6:00 my buddy calls and says he needs help rescuing the NASWA crew. MP was closer than me so they handled it.
