My weekend started off bad and almost turned into a disaster. Got home last night and took the boat off the charger and wouldn’t you know it dead. Took the battery out and $78 later walked out of Wal Mart with a new one, Wal Mart batteries are only warranted for 1 year now mine was a Jan 16. Got back about 9pm stuck new battery in and no running lights, no graphs, no pumps, only 1 Talon works. So I decided to wait until morning and see if I could figure it out in the daylight. Still couldn’t see what was wrong this morning but since I only live about 10 miles from Squaw decided to go any ways and take the boat in to the shop Monday. Get everything loaded and head out and now it gets interesting, going down 51S get to the bridge and hit the expansion joint on the bridge feel a large bump look in the mirror and the boat is swaying back and forth. I had not locked the hitch down and the trailer popped off the ball. Thank goodness for safety chains! They caught the trailer tounge and I was able to pull over and get everything hooked back up. Got to Squaw and finally got the boat started after remembering to pump the primer bulb then my nephew gets a call from his friend and they have a extra ticket for the TCU game. Gave up and reloaded the boat dropped it off at Boats R Us came home and watched the game. So now I can say I have forgot the plug, forgot to take the tie downs off, and forgot to lock the trailer hitch down. Golf anyone?

Bad day bro and on top of all that TCU got their A$$es handed to'em. Might rethink golfing too, with your luck might get hit by a ball, lol. Just kidding, everything that happened to you happens to everyone. Tomorrow's another day.

I got nothing bad to say about TCU. They played an excellent first half.

TCU was my pick to win it all. They have the best coach year in and year out they just didn't have the best QB but at least he doesn't run from the law or grab his crotch in public. Okie's will get their a$$es handed to them if and when they play Clemson. My Aggies have a real coach now and can't wait for next year. GIG"EM

Im with you, I was going over (WLHP for the locals) and went over a section in the bridge and felt something bump, transom saver broke. Im draggin, no shoulder, guys flashing lites behind me. Got to a stop and tilted it up. Trashed what was left of my prop from Sheldon dings 2 weeks ago, had to put the 3 blade back on.

I guess I have done all three of those things too. Only I hauled my boat 8 miles, launched, loaded up, and drove 7 miles back to town. Stopped and filled up boat and truck, started to pull out of station and the trailer came unhitched. I had the factory cables instead of chains, and I tell you, the cables are not worth a dime. Both cables broke when the weight of the trailer tongue hit them.


Snowflakes and entitled brats will be the doom of America!
