Wind around 10...2-3ft. waves...partner breaks key off key in ignition...boat gets stuck on clay bank trying to start motor...boat starts to fill up with water because of waves coming in the back of the boat...partner gets motor started with pull rope...had to abandon boat and let the bilge pumps get water out...for 30 minutes...got back in boat and made it back to the landing. This is kinda like eternity you better be prepared! Never thought a dollar piece of rope would save me and my boat. Ended up catching 9 with the big one at 37. Drifted threadfin. Water temp 79.
