    This is how you get your boat out of the water when it is full and stuck on the bottom.

    I zigged when I should have zagged. No, another boat came out from the other side of the bridge at 50 mph it was decision time. I decided to back off the throttle and the boat shot to left and BAM! It was that or hit or buzz past the other boat at full speed. It would have been close. Damage either way.

    The only thing they did was give us( my son and I) a ride to shore and took off, I had to swim out later when my friends showed up and threw a rope down off the bridge to get all my rods. I think I talked to a guy from sringfield at the ramp they offered to help but with the equipment they had it wouldn't done any good.

    How in the heck do you sink a pontoon? Maybe what I did isn't so bad after all!

    It was a 16' starcraft with a 350 chevy and a berkeley jet drive. 55 to 60 mph in 4 inches of water. Started welding on it today.

    Where's the sump pump when you need it? Also would have been nice to have a spreader bar. You got it out and no one was hurt that's the important part. Hope you get it going again soon.
