    Default Towed in from main bay

    My 2009 Suzuki 175 with 150 hours crapped the bed on Thursday out at main bay. Used the kicker to get into the pass and anchor for the night. Luckily I had a buddy in whittier with a 37 ft tolly craft and he towed us back. I had a float plan setup with the harbor master in whittier and was able to call the coast guard and let them know what was going on. It sounded like a cylinder wanted to come out, it was knocking pretty hard. It won't get any wrenches on it for about 2 weeks. Anyone else have bad luck with these motors?

    What kind of boat were you in? I think we saw you getting towed in on Friday just about 4 miles outside of the harbor at around 10:30AM. My buddy and I were on 2 waverunners headed out. It looked like you were a C-dory. Was that you?

    Yup, it was a fun ride. We ran to Valdez, ate a pizza at Mike's and then ran back.

    Were those your wave runners with the added lights on the front? I saw them sitting on the truck Saturday when I came in.
