After the fact wished a would have marked it. Found a bent piece of rebar just under the surface, cannot been seen when idling. It is located in the mid-lake cove going north just inside the south point of the cove. About 20 yards inside the cove and 20 yards off the south bank. Luckily for me it was not straight up or would have punched a hole in my hull, as is about 4' gash about 3/4" wide and through the gel coat. Not leaking. It makes a terrible sound. BEWARE!

Don, lets get that found and marked. I don't want anybody to hit that if we can help it. I have some PVC pipe that we might be able to mark it with.

Frank even an old dog can learn a new thing. My wife talked me thru. The drop pin is the approximate location of the rebar.

yeah I've never understood this... A stump will RARELY ever damage you boat. That dang rebar you can just LOOK at ant it will eat your jell coat....

It should be illegal in my opinion...

Catslayer I agree should be illegal. I have rolled over thousands of stumps and never any damage but 1 piece of bent over rebar and at least $1500.00 in damage. Boy was I pissed when it happened.

That is an old stump marker, underwater now due to the lake being high. There are a lot of these under the water line on Hawkins right now, so extreme caution should be used if you are not familiar with this lake!

I have seen a couple of dozen rebar marking stumps there. Most of them had a tennis ball on them but they won't last long with different water levels and rot. Use caution in coves with stumps. I have nice scratch to remind me of one without a marker.
