Bad morning on the water

Postby Steve » Jul Fri 07, 2017 7:46 am

I decided to go trolling yesterday morning. It didn't end well. I found someones anchor rope and 20 lb anchor the hard way. I ran it onto the prop. Stopped the motor so fast it damaged it. Now I'll be taking the boat out and into the repair shop. I posted "anchor found" and located the owner. He was kind enough to give me $200 for my troubles. Fortunately my insurance will cover the repairs up to the value of the motor. Hopefully between the cash and insurance I can get it fixed and back in the water soon. The prop has a notch it it and it shakes so hard when I put it in gear it kills the motor.

Please use a brightly colored anchor rope people. Black ropes may look nice but if lost in the lake they're about impossible to see.

I’ve had that happen before, thankfully with less damage it sounds like. It does ruin your day. I hope everything works out for you and you’re back on the water soon.
