    Default Finally got to use the push rope

    I guess at some point it had to happen. Even whackers need a push rope on occasion. Got to say Boat US tow insurance is worth the $60/year. We were at Tower Park and towed all the way back to Whiskey Slough... I asked what the bill would have been and he said $1200. (No typo)

    Compressor seized up, boat died, black smoke rolled out the top and I thought, oh crap this is bad. Smoke was belt spinning on seized compressor. As always, Boatmasters is getting me all fixed up and should be ready to roll tomorrow. 120 hours on motor since beginning of July and that includes 3 weeks of down time for rock crawling. It's getting used!

    Much of the upper SAC river where I drive to work (From Hood to West Sac) looks full of junk right now; tree trunks, limbs, whole trees! dock debris, u name it its out there.... With all the rains the water has reached a high level mark and floated everything off the banks. Most of it will be coming down your way to the south delta soon so watch out for it!!! be careful out there.

    Hope you get it fixed soon Jon!!!
