Shortest fishin trip ever

Post by Mc Tool »

Got the boat out of the shed after winter and did the whole prep thing , changed all oils ( two motors ) greased prop shafts , the whole 9 yards .Took me most of a day.
Backed boat off trailer at the ramp at Riverton estuary ( bit of sideways current ) and found that the steering was seized solid........ever tried to maneuver a boat onto a trailer ...in a river ...with no steering 🀬🀯🀬😠. Was home again before the bait had even thawed outπŸ˜†

No steering? Simply sail around the circumference of the earth and back to the start.
