i have 2 of them one funny now after over. i just got new cat had boat full of people going to big pig roast party on lake on the way there i pulled back on the throttle a little then the boat came off plane. I was like wtf checked the drive ok check the engine and won't come off idle. Lifted the hatch found all the linkages fell off the carbs on the blowers. had no tools in the boat and my frined had to hold the hatch up for 30 min after someone brought out tools to us while floating in the middle of the lake. 2 was launched boat and started idling up the river twards lake got to where was meeting friends a little way up river and noticed engine quieting down looked over transom and found the exhaust almost under water just at that moment remembered that i didn't put the three drain plugs in. needless to say made it back to launch ramp loaded boat and waited 25mins to drain water

I can add a couple more. Took a spill on a slippery ramp walking out to hook up my winch cable. Broke a toe and nearly knocked out my teeth on the trailer. staright into the ater face first. Thsi was after I had been yelling at a group sitting in the launch ramp while they unloaded all there gear from the truck into the boat. Got a big applause. Broke two more toes also on the boat. One coming over the windshield after anchoring I slammed it into the seat and snaaap, the other was swing my leg up over the back seat climbing out of the bilge. Kicked the electric hatch ram and snapped the the next toe over.

I got really drunk after a day of boating, the next day we went out boating got to drinking beer again and I farted, needless to say it wasn't only air that came out. I was tied off in a chain of about 8 boats at LOTO, people all over the place, I had to go back to the condo to change did not go back to the same cove though, thank God for the Imodium AD!!!. I know I'm not the only person this has happened to.

Just had my new interior put in ,laid my sun deck in to check the fit. Fits like a glove. Got around to putting the rest of the interior in fogot about the sun deck lying there. Botom line: Sun deck pads look alot better on a boat than the highway.

Entered a 13 foot boat in the Poker Runs. I survived as well as the boat. I still ask myself, "What in the hell was I thinking?"

Damn I1, you are rough on 'dem toes.

Bige's is up there.

Here's mine:
Beautiful day on the Potomac for the first National Capital Poker Run. After the run, we are all backing into slips in Old Towne Alexandria. I am leaning off the bow of my boat, trying to loop around the starboard piling. Damn if I did not lean too far out an lost my balance. In a desparate attempt not to get wet, I lept at the piling, slung my arms around it, and hoped to tarzan around the piling onto the bow of the boat in the next slip. It didn't work. I hit that piling and slid down it like a cartoon, right into the water. Bruised my ear, leg, arms, and hand, not to mention the splinters/abrasions; got filthy. I had a change of clothes but soaked my only pair of shoes with me. Thank goodness there was no video camera. It sure was easy to tie up the boat then, and shoot, I think I tied up two more while I was down there.
