No big deal, nothing she hasn't been through before! Just float her up and soak those engines with diesel. You'll be running again in no time. You can't hurt those yammies. Just don't forget to rig up a couple extra bilge pumps this time! You'll be in SFL by Thursday.

Is there a better way to upload pics? If so I will be able to give you better photos from the build.

for the pics....yes use imgur.....super fast super easy.....

you can batch, resize with one click... hands down the easiest i have used to post pics... + they never go offline, ever as long as they are being viewed somewhat regularly


BTW.... this may be the worst luck of a trip.....

but it will be the most amazing story

and maybe the #1 post of all time on THT. I actually check back specifically for this thread.....
