    First one is a bad docking job at susitna landing.

    Second is, sure looked deeper then that when I took that channel. Big Su moose hunt.

    That's never happened to me.......Ever! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

    Or at least I don't have any pictures to prove it!





    I'd almost rather have my boat stuck in the river right now than stuck under a tarp with snow.

    Is summer almost here yet?

    Default brakes

    Looks to me like Mr. Wooldridge ought to try developing a way to install an
    emergency brake instead of figurin' how to make em faster!

    The bad docking job, heres the story and I'm sticken to it!

    The water was very lowwwww and with the wide body I knew I had to be full throttle (or close to it) and still would bounce the sides going through the chute. We all agreed the the first two boats would go past the landing and go up river and idle down after I came in. I was to come up fast, hit the landing and do a "spin stop", well after the other two went through they thought it wasn't that bad after all so them pulled in and docked. So here I come bombing up the river 5 minutes after them, hit the shallows and bounced but made it, I commit to the "spin stop 360" with a right hand turn only to be looking at 2 BOATS PARKED IN MY WAY! .... Full throttle reverse and there was no stoppin it or turning back into the river, soooooooooo, I HAD TO BEACH IT!
