Fock it and empty the cooler.....:D

While running the shiat out of my turd I lost all power to everything and right before it happened it started to squeel like a stuck pig.

I was making the fastest passes ever with the boat and got some rad video, but I don't have it to post it. Boat was on kill and thats what it did, Died.
We tried to trouble shoot the electrical problem and with no luck i said Fock it and got my drink on. Everyone in camp was trying to help (thanks) And I got alittle frustrated with working on it so i said its time to drink....:)devil


It was the damn battery.......lol

Showed 12.42 volt with no load and wouldnt even kick the starter.
Pulled the battery out and load tested it. Again, 12.32 volts and straight to zero when i put the load to it. Sometimes we overlook the easy stuff and rule it out because we think it is in proper order.

Can't wait for the fourth now!!!!!

Oh, and yes, I did get towed by a flatty!!!

ya its always the easy stuff. i went to the lake this last weekend was doing some work on the motor and left the oil line to drain the pan by the fly wheel. well started the motor and ran the boat when all of a suden was hauling the mail and the wife hit me and said is that normal looked down and had 5 qrts of oil in the bottom of the boat and the motor started ticking. shut it down and realized before even getting out of the seat what had happened i was relly pissed at my self for pulling a jack ass move but the wife said at least you didnt blow up the motor you would have been done for the season. she is right thank god for that some times lol.

I'd rather be towed in by a flattie over being towed in by a jet ski.
Hey, I got you all beat... I was towed in on lake Sonoma , at the end of the day (a weekday) by the porta pottie maintenence barge. Had to give the guys a 6 pak of beer to do it. Twenty minutes of smellin like shot at 1 MPH. My wife was raggin the hole way in. Beat that!!!! Jim :)sphss :)sphss
