Well, it finally happened this past weekend. My motor spit the bit on Rayburn, and I was a long way from the trailer. Split fuel line dumping fuel everywhere. Headed out on the trolling motor, but sure wasn't going to make it the distance. I keep an orange construction flag in my storage like the guys at the road construction sites. I took it off the stick, and put snaps on the corners so I could snap it to the eyes of my flippin' stick. It worked like magic. I was mid-way out of Veach and the first boat that passed by gave us a tow to Caney. Said they would have never noticed us if not for the flag. The flags are $4.95 at Home Depot, and worth every penny. Glad I had it. Get one, and hope you never need to use it.
I'd also like to send out a special thanks for 2 fine groups of people. To the family of hunters that towed us from Veach to Caney, and to the guy and his son that gave me a ride around from Caney to my truck at Castle Boykins. Fine people all. Neither would take my money. I offered both groups $100.00, and they absolutely refused. I've done it before, and I'll do it again - help folks on the water - some day it will be your turn.
