Default Tire/Birds Nest

This was a tire floating along with a nest complete with broken egg shells from a large bird.

Unfortunately we incurred some minor damage to the bow from one of those floating debris fields. Also dinged a prop pretty good too. Oh well at least we can say we were out there. Now if we could just get the trailer fixed some we can move the boat to other locations

43thunder,

That sucks, I hope it's not too bad. You need a little boat like mine so you can turn quicker. I saw logs floating that were longer than my boat! From those pics it didn't look as bad down south. It was tough to avoid all that junk up north.

Down here in Richmond, we call them "river gators". Usually good for a new prop or outdrive...

It take's a few week's for everything to make it out to the bay/ocean after it thaw's, by mid April it should be fine, then we just have to watch out for PWC.
