Great Story Melrna, thanks for starting a new thread!

Neptune really likes to reach out and swap the backs of our heads when we think we're getting the hang of it. He does it too to the guys...I watched last month as the stern of one boat hugged up to the bow (and the anchor hanging there) of another.

You just haven't lived until you back out of the slip with "way"...while the wind is blowing and the current is running high and fast, only to find the transmission cable has come off the linkage....RAMING SPEED... The circus was in town and if you're inclined you can read my blathering http://pacificnorthwestboating.com/2...cable-trouble/ (you can copy and paste to the browser if you want)

What a sinking feeling to have no forward or reverse! Anyways, thanks for the thread and the story! I'm looking forward to reading stories from the other girls too!

Come on Ladies, cough it up..we all want to know!
