Good luck, water looks a little low this morning, could be tricky up around the 70-75 MM.

I was wondering what happened. Hopefully everyone is fine. I see they are now at the dock around Brown Bend. Old record stands a little longer.

I love it! They break, they figure out a way to get it fixed and then they finish what they set out to do. I am sure there is a bit of disappointment, but what a class act! So many would just be *****in' about the weak prop shaft (or whatever broke).

All of it was awesome! I followed it all morning but it does prove that EVERYTHING can break.

Well these new outboards don't.
That's what I read everywhere anyhow. That and 50 year warranties on them.

So I am wondering will the warranty restart in the spring with the new replacement? When did it break, sounds like at least 6 month down time.
