I didnt get to talk to you, you rafted off Bobby who was rafted off us at PIB. We had the port drive rip off and take out everything, almost sunk the boat. Made it to Mazurik launch and on the trailer with bilge pumps running.

Geez, lots of bad luck out there Sat. Big Skater came in with a blown trans too, I think TomCat had issues as well. I was talking to the guys who were on a Powerplay, they lost a belt or something.

We came in late to PIB sat morning,

At the run, we only made it just north of middle bass heading to Middle Sister isl. Just when things were getting good, we were coming around the outside of the pack and port RPMs shot up, I knew it immediately. Got a whole 5 minutes in! Took us about 2.5 hours to idle back to Sandusky on one engine.

I did make it back to PIB on another boat but we stayed at the Keys.

I didn't have any issues and water was flat and fast, averaged a 100 to the first card stop running next to Gone again. Tomcat had an electrical issue, and the PP smoked a coupler. I was lucky enough to catch a ride in Gone Again later that day, effortless 146mph, said it would do 155 with the "small" props that were on it. Fun day for sure.
