I know of someone who got their entire charger bass boat swamped with water to the brim when it was taking the waves over the back end. Bilge pumps don't work when the boat is submerged.

Guess there aren't many willing to admit there bad experience. I saw plenty of boats trying to get somewhere. That's is until it was raining so hard I lost sight of them.

mine does. Mine looked like a hot tub once. Took 2 hours to remove 30 minutes of rain.

I was stepping onto the dock just as the first big thunder hit. Looked up,saw the black sky and counted my lucky stars.

We started at the dam each morning and as soon as it was light enough to see we hauled xxx up to the north end of the lake well past the 2946 bridge. Sunday morning was no different but as we were leaving the dam we could hear thunder but could not see any storm clouds. Once we got to the 515 bridge the storm clouds were noticeable. We continued to our destination and got there just as the wind and rain started. We tied up to a Willow tree in a protected area and hunkered down until the lightning was past us. Had we been 5 minutes later it would have been ugly, but we made it and as soon as the storm ended we had one of the best days fishing in a long time.

To whom it may concern: I had two guys use my dock and actually lifted their boat out of the water using my lift then walked around my dock in Little Caney... Don't know who they were but it Freaked out my wife when she looked down and saw them. But thanks for not stealing anything and leaving my dock the way it was.

They should have left a thank you note and a six pack.
