Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Jim, I don't know how much more my little HBW5 can take! Last night I left my mooring with the club dingy in tow, and CLUNK, CLACK, SCREEEE! and the engine dies.... look down.. HUGE tree stump with root between my prop and rudder... there I was floating down the channel.. a couple of guys in a bass boat stopped by and they got the wood out.. then the tow line I had rigged up.. floated under.. and yup, CLUNK, CLACK, SCREEEE! It's wrapped on the prop! .. finally a couple of guy from my club came down and towed me back. later, after I got my wits, composure,and some dignity back I tapped the starter while in reverse and the line unwrapped. Whew....
