    Default O.k. that scared the pi$$ out of me..wtf??

    It was a nice weekend at the lake....headed back to the ramp to call her a day. Sooo..I am legging her out...Flying a monster rooster to give the fishermen a show at the ramp....and kaboom I kinda thought I was about to swim.lol
    What do you think happened 1st here? I snapped a diverter cable...and ripped the reverse bucket right off. Suppose the pins worked out of the bucket...and when it went it broke the diverter cable in 2...or??? I know it scared the fock out of me.

    Possible heim joint failure at the trim cable, those old style Diverters catch a buttload of water when fully down, just pure speculation though..

    Glad no one took the hard swim...

    well, there you go! that boom you heard was the tank blowing up because the rudder hit it
    see, there's always a simple answer to everything

    I wouldn't think both pins would work their way out at the same time, I find it odd that pins and bolts that hold them in are missing. Just asking, was the rudder broken before or after the incident. I think the bucket came off first. I had a diverter cable go out once and it didn't do any damage, but I was only going about 30.

    Hell after reading that I thought your ol lady caught you with the girlfriend and pulled a gun

    Good idea to check things out once in a while. You might have seen something and prevented this.
