Could have been worse, could have been my MC

Not a super great day. Marina called. Your boat has taken on some water

It's our "work boat", share it with a neighbor so the MC doesn't get abused taking building supplies to the cabin. Our best guess is that it was trying to commit suicide due to it's constant mistreatment.

Sorry to hear. The good new is, you can probably stick a new outboard on there and she'll be as good as new! Who needs gauges anyway?

Also, what lake is that on? Looks beautiful.

Probably can dry out and use the outboard.......electronics may be a little flaky if it was down there too long

That was two days ago. Amazingly the outboard is running again!

Even worse, that's salt water. Didn't even notice the background of the shot, i was looking at the boat in the air. It's just outside of Vancouver. On the coast heading up to whistler if anyone has driven that road.

You might be right. Motor is running. We'll see how the electronics hold up...

I spent many summers cruising between Puget Sound and SE AK, by your name, are you on Gambier island? We typically went through Nanaimo, and then crossed Straits of Georgia, so really haven't spent much time in your area. A lot of time in Desolation and north.

Well... The boat usually lives on a trailer but was in a slip for a few days when the neighbor's big boat was hauled for maintenance.

Had a storm one evening, that probably started it. Turns out the battery was also pulled to be charged overnight - no bilge pump - that finished it

Ironically, the battery being out likely saved much of the electrical. Was it genius or stupidity?
