well..thought I'd write a quick note about the weekend...talk about wierd....
we put the boat in the river dock thursday nite after work cuz the weather was going to be crazy that nite and I had a feeling that the dock would fill up quickly....just a funny feeling I had...I was right..it filled right up and several other boaters had the same idea...
we ran some errands thursday nite ...store...this and that...then got up fairly early friday morning to get breakfast...load up our gear and food..then run to the licensing place to get our new tabs for the yr....
we finally got to the boat at about 9:30am and as we're walking down the ramp I see something strange under my swim step...not exactly sure since it looks like some sort of balloon or something but whatever the heck it was...it stunk!!...I mean a nasty smell that permeates into your sinus's....as I got closer I can now make out this thing...it looks like a pig!!...but it turns out it's a cow!!..it's bloated ...it's ugly and it's wedged under my swimstep!!..the current from the river is running about 7-9 knots and this thing is wedged right next to my drives....
my original thinking was to start the engines up and blow it out...but with that thing so bloated..it probably would explode...so ..we decided to flip the boat using the current to help swing the boat around...with help from the marina guys....we flipped the boat and the cow swung out into the current....dang that thing stunk....now I have to go back to the boat and wash the boat off...I'll post a few pic's cuz you won't believe me...
the last nite some nut came down river and harrassed the boaters down a few from me and slammed into them...so..now we have a nut case in a 50 ft old old chris craft on dope or something...crashing into the boats on the river..this idiot was thrown out of our marina before for some stupid things he did yrs ago...but now he's trying to take revenge or something.....still can't figure that one out...but ..we got up early this morning and put the boat away...had enough fun for the weekend...all I wanted was a nice quiet weekend on the river dock....next time I'll go to the other marina....
hope everyone else had a better weekend...
