Well Don Pedro, you win again. And a huge thank you to Rick and OC for the combo tow home. You guys were life savers. I was preparing to spend the night out there in my oil soaked boat. I can't thank you guys enough!
Stacy and I had fun at Pedro though, thank you guys for your hospitality! Always a good time!
The trip took it's toll on my poor boat. My driver seat came apart, the eye that holds the boat on the trailer broke, and I almost lost it on the freeway coming home, and the carpet is pulling up because it is soaked with 10 qts of Red Line 20-50 on top of the motor issue.
I pulled the motor today and it looks like the intake gasket blew out and filled the motor full of water. I guess I should have listened to the guy back east, who I bought that Imco lower off of, and kept an eye on water pressure. Live and learn.
It looks like my season will be cut short. But it was a ton of fun.. Thanks to all of the DLB for a great year!
What do you do when your motor blows up? Build it bigger and badder!
