where to start??
motor and boat an hr old,well,on the hour meter,fished a local lake for the day with brother,sis in law,wife and kid,took wife and kid to dock,let them off,took 1 quick ride around the lake,just off the dock in 5 ft water,must have been a rock,oops,3"of skeg mising,ruined aluminum prop!!
same lake,after working 12 hr,go fishing to relax,loaded boat,strapped it down,jumped in truck,drive 3 miles home with,you guessed it,motor down,dragged skeg the whole way,it broke off 1/2 mile from house,cleanly where new one was welded on the previous year!!
drive 150 miles to lake,launch and fish 12 hrs,go to load boat,trailer comes unhitched from ball as were loading it!
launched boat when lake was about 3 ft low,shore line all mud,went to pick up bow to pull it on shore a bit,both leggs go out from under me,one on each side of boat,wet and muddy seat,but went fishing,had a good day!!
moving boat over on trailer to line it up to winch it on,electric only lakes suck for that,wet sneakers and trailer frame,splashdown has occured!! did that 3 times in 1 year.
out on lake ontario in 2-4 ft waves,nice rollers,no crashers/breakers,gentle rollers,down in a trough of a wave,running across the waves,didnt think it was going to crash,but we all got wet that day,good thing it was warm out!!
were hoping this year we dont do no dumb things!!!had the boat out sunday to run it a bit.clean out the fogging oil,check for leaks in the revised fuel system,check the gps,livewell,bilge pump,and the fishing poles mostly,no fish,water temp was 48-50 degree on the surface.hope next weekend is warmer!since bass season is closed,but its catch and release here,might try a few things out.
