Ha...I've seen that before. His American eagle ripped jeans and necklace really make him a badass.

Default Not being negative..just thinking

Hmm...

if I remember correctly, aluminum doesn't do well with chlorine...

anyway..

perhaps it might be a good idea to pull a contractor bag over each lower unit...just thinking.. it might also prevent the grease and oil from getting into the pool..

(or maybe a thick mil clear bag)

don't know the OP but I'll go out on a limb and say he's not one to say he can't do something.

Something tells me this is all going to work out splendidly!

I wish more people followed through with crazy yet spontaneously genius notions. Become the meme, brotha!

Going to be quite the pool party when someone gets liquored up and decides to jump in and bang their head on one of those shiny new props. Can't wait!

We put 2 jet skis in an above ground pool in college, so my professional opinion is you’re good to go.

A few years back I went to visit a buddy of mine. I had never been to his house before and got there a few minutes early and arrived before he did. Sitting in my truck in his driveway I noticed the silhouette of a sportfish sitting lower than it normally would if on a trailer; so I walked down to investigate. Knowing that there was a non-navigable canal at the end of the street I was perplexed. As I approached the property I found an older ~35’ sportfish docked in a small quarter acre pond. When my buddy pulled up I asked him if he knew the story behind the big boat in the little pond at the end of the road. He said “Yeah, they have a lot of parties down there; they sit out on the aft deck of that old boat and get liquored up.” Evidently the guy uses the boat as a guest house when friends come into town too. Brilliant!

"Hernando, MS". how long do you plan on keeping the boat in the pool? Because you sure have a long drive to the coast south of you.

Putting the boat in the pool shouldn't be a problem with an experienced crane operator and rigger, but I do have a question for you once you get it in the pool. How are you going to secure the boat and tie it up? I can see someone getting liquored up and thinking it's a good idea to do a cannonball into the pool, followed by the horrid sound of gel coat scraping against the concrete pool coping. I don't see any cleats on the pool deck or solid objects like trees or buildings close by that would give you something secure to tie off to

No tide, no current, no waves, probably somewhat sheltered from the wind. He doesn't need anything solid to tie up, just a couple of sandbags or something else heavy enough to keep it from drifting. Too bad he doesn't have a power pole!

He must set one anchor off the stern and the other off the bow, proper anchorage is crucial no matter where you anchor.

Please do not discuss such small details. Keep the bigger picture in mind here, memes!

Did you miss the part about someone getting liquored up and doing cannonball into the pool? Yes, just sitting there all nice and pretty by itself, no need to securely tie it down......but a 250-300 lb redneck 3 sheets to the wind doing a cannonball can throw one hell of a wake.
