Crossing oil lines to the remote oil filter will ruin your day pretty quick!

I did the same thing in my driveway,, except I thought I knew better by being careful and hooking the winch rope up to the bumper of the truck,,, stupid me forgot to lock the winch,, boat took of down the driveway with the winch handle spinning a million miles an hour,, thought about trying to grab it,, probably would have snapped my hand like tooth pick,, anyway, got to the end of the rope and I couldn't believe my eyes when that little tiny clamp on the side of the winch that holds the end of the rope or cable held and stopped the boat in it's tracks,,, boat was headed straight for a telephone pole in the middle of the yard.. It yanked the truck about 2 feet down the drive way..

Put a gil offshore battery box in. Set the drill depth for the inside holes but for "some reason" drilled the outside first. Thought all was well. Got about 10 miles and the boat did'nt seem to be handling right. I slowed down and water was shooting out like a fire hose. Turned around and got the boat back on the lift and would then lower it - could'nt figure out where the leak was. My brain just could'nt compute that I drilled a hole through the hull.

I was helping a friend put speakers in his boat, I though we would use a zip-tie to hold the wires up under the side of his boat. I put a nice screw hole through the side.......Didn't realize how thin it was there.
