    went to lake oroville with my buddy to take the new boat out. after runnin all over the lake for like an hour i hit a rock that came out of nowhere. I wanted to see if there was any damage to the boat so we brought it back to the ramp. the boat had a good size chunk/scratch on it, but my good luck wasnt over yet. i decided at that point to just pack up and go home, but my hydraulics wouldnt pull the engine up so i had to scrape the rotar to get out of the water. at this point we tried to find the hydraulic problem but to no avail. i ended up having to take the arms off the engine, lift it up and tie it just to get home. what a day what a day

    Ben... sorry to hear about your boating experience..It does happen and your finding that the word boat is a four letter word....."WORK"... and it does take a lot of time for maintenance and repairs.... good luck with the hydralics....
