    Default More money than brains

    Check out this Contender that "ran aground". Boat was only 6 hours old.
    Operator claimed he was doing 28 knots. Both people on board were 100%
    sober. Cost him $10,000 to have Tow Boat US pull him back to the water.
    4 tow lines parted in the process. MSRP on the boat ranges from $300,000 to
    $400,000 depending on options."

    I'm thinking that if a guy has the money for a boat like that, 10k for a tow out of the weeds isn't really going to bother him much.. And, I've never seen a Contender go 28kts...

    Default It's plantin' time!

    Time to plant the crops now that the plowing is done!

    That middle furrow is a bit shallow though; can you let that guy know to adjust the middle motor a bit downward?
