    Default what goes wrong while boating

    we went out yesterday. backed the boat down the ramp and when it hit the water it just floated away, the trap was broke and dont know for how long. lucky it didnt slid off earlier. then we were anchored in a cove, went to pull the anchor up and no anchor just rope and chain. to top off the day got home put boat in garage and shut the garage door and heard a big bang. since my strap to hold the boat on the trailer broke and i had to tie it on it changed the location of the handle. the garage door hit it and instead of going back up it kept going and crushed the top panel of my garage door.
    big or small what else goes wrong while out for an enjoyable day?

    Rough day. At least it is all stuff that can be replaced and it could have been much, much worse. Look at the bright side....I know, I know lol

    Sounds like you had a bad day. Wait a minute. There are no bad days on the lake as long as you bring the boat back home right?
