Talk about a frustrating day trying to get my 13' Boston Whaler in shape and every step I took something went wrong. Trying to get into the Shifter box has 3 screws ...2 come out with ease and the third decides to strip and then I spend the next hour drilling and smashing the frozen ^@%@$@&*@ . Then I want to put on a new steering wheel (broke the old one)and I realize I don't have a 1" socket so I got to 3 neighbors who swear they have one and spend the rest of the afternoon looking thru their tool boxes only to come up empty handed. Now it's snowing and cold and I lost 2 of the screws cause of my 5yr old son wanted to "Help"....I need a beer ...maybe even a few of them:angry5:

You know what they say it is always something... Like when we were catching rock in the bay, and the bilge pump didn't work, water coming through the cabin floor. It's always somethign....Lovely day.

How about going to pull your boat, putting all the tools in the truck, motoring around to the boat ramp at 94th st and hitting a crab trap that wraps itself around the prop....and now no tools to cut it loose.....had to tow the boat to the ramp while swimming/walking from about the middle of the bay.:cussing:
