    So instead of typing it all out a hundred times in text I figured I would just write it here.

    We were rafted up about six boats out at a bar called Frank and Luois.. (sp?).

    About four boats closer to the dock was a CC called War Party. That was our initial back up ride if we didn’t connect with kelly in his 42 Tiger.

    Anyhow the guy that owns War Party is a nice guy named Bubba and this was his new CC (old one was present as well) so I figured I’d go talk with him a bit get a quick interview and setup partying with him and crew later that night etc..

    Literally got up on the engine hatch and went to walk across to the next boat. For some reason everything inside of me was saying “don’t take that step.” I literally consciously said “no big deal”. Two similar boars, similar heights, similar seats etc.. just walking boat to boat like I have done a hundred times.

    Took the step and when my right foot set down I heard a pop and I just started falling. As I went past my foot backwards I did notice it was no longer facing the correct way. I kinda hit the front of the backseat with my side before landing on my back on the floor.

    Somewhere in all of that I heard a second pop and that hurt even more than the first one.. Then when the rest of me came down my broken foot hit the back seat and floor which kind of orientated back to normal.

    Ended up being broken in three places and dislocated but relocated on the final impact.. (which was a good thing).

    It wasn't a drunk maneuver or anything like that. Just a shit happens moment that I will never forget. After it happened we didn’t have any medicine so a i was drinking on the boat.. Then made our Uber driver stop to get another six pack on way to hospital.

    The pain has been unbearable for the last 24 hours and my hands are shaking even right now to it’s hard to type. Only thing that seems to help is IBProfreb 800’s.. the Norco/Narco whatever’s don’t seem to work for me.

    Appreciate everyone reaching out and texting etc.

    I’m probably gonna be out of commission for awhile.

    Big thanks to HeadlessHula for stepping up and taking over most of my responsibilities for the following week.

    He is going to Nashville along with Tom to represent rdp and to cover the big press release Merc Racing is doing.

    This is one of the biggest things Merc has done in decades and to say my spirits are low about missing it now is an understatement.

    Damn Dave, take care and make sure that heals right or your in for a lifetime of problems. Get a couple opinions if necessary before surgery. Are you going back to LHC to have it taken care of? I’m sure someone here can recommend a good surgeon if needed.

    Not sure how we are going to do it but we are heading home starting tomorrow.

    Just laying on a bed is hard enough and I have to move about every 15 min to control swelling and pain. How I’m going to deal with ten plus hours of traveling tomorrow I dunno..

    Damn Dave, that’s hard to read. It sucks to be taken out by something like that. I hope you have a speedy recovery, it sounds like you’re in good hands and I’m sure you know you have an army of friends that would help you in any way they can any time they can. Feel better brother.

    Again, been there buddy.
    advice, take the norco before you leave, or better yet call the doc now. Tell him it not working. Ask for a different script. This is common. Like Hydrocodone. Better.
    Side note about Codene..... in norCO.
    very binding...... constipation x 10.
    Just a heads up.
    Trust me.....

    Bummer deal Dave best of luck to you in you medical battle. Had another friend with similar injury. I hope that you’re is a faster. He is a few months out of commission.

    At least you didn’t get the first ass kissing in the docktagon.

    I would probably eat a Xanax or Valium and go to sleep. Probably not the beat advice but It’s what I would try

    Hope you feel better Dave.

    Nothing worse than losing our mobility. We all take it so fore granted , and when its gone, its just frustrating as hell!

    I broke my tib/fib years ago and was in a cast for a year. I didnt do surgery, and regret it now. All kinds of ailments from it.

    When walking from boat to boat did you use the swim step to swim step or the motor hatch/fiberglass way?

    ...Should you opt for the Norco or hydrocodone (they’re actually one in the same)...and end up taking large quantities...make sure that you buy some sugar-free orange flavored metamucill from Walmart and use it up to three times a day...otherwise you may get unbelievably plugged up...And if surgery is required and they offer you morphine... if you can stay away from it do... as morphine will really plug you up...
