It was actually still a great day. Broke down at 3 dunes. Floated and drank beers until tow showed up and drug us to cat tail. AJ brought the trailer up to grab us. Now he has the boat and will fix. Hopefully motors not hurt.nooooooooo, it was looking sooo goooood... until... wtf happened?
I will try to improve on my photo skills and post better images of the islands. LOLDamn!!, if this one of the Main streets,they sure do not keep the weeds under control. Looks terrible,sure not the Picture I have always had of there. You keep dashing my Mental Picture.
Funny right after this pic there was a McLaren and Aston Martin getting on the freeway. I bet they were out and about just because there were not a lot of cars on the road these day.Fuckin punch it!
Luckily they exhaust is above the waterline, years ago I stopped to help a guy who was floating outside steamboat in an older nordic. As i drove by i saw both bilge pumps wide open dumping water. I pulled up to help and at first the guy refused and told me he was an engineer and he just lost the impeller, but when i showed him that his manifolds got so hot that his piping from manifold to tip had melted and thats where the water was coming in he changed his mind. I did my best to slow it with duct tape but ultimately he needed an additional pump and a tow.While floating and broken.
lost the impeller causing header to get crazy hot which burned the rubber coupler between the header and the exhaust tip. Little fire. It’s at Barrett now.
One of my favorites of all the Chris Craft my dad, along with his best buddy, used for water ski racing at Arrowhead, Catalina ski race and at Mead during the mid-50's.
Is that North shore? Been to the gardens there!
