    Winterization question

    My only guess is I did it level on trailer , raised bow after I drained . Must have been a little water that didn't drain all the way . Idk. Prob just paranoid but didn't expect anything in there . I've winterized myself /or my dad since it was new . Never had a prob . Idk why there was some left Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Winterization question

    Strange dumb question but here we go....have a 99 trophy with a 4.3l i/o. Winterized , drained the water etc back in early October. My dad passed away the same weekend , everything was a blur that time frame . Went to the boat today to check everything over . Second guessing everything I did recently I decided to unscrew the engine drain plugs for reassurance . Got a little (about 2 max 3 shotglasses out of water ) then realized I never took off lower water pump hose this year when drained which I normally do. I know I won't know for sure if I did any damage until I run it but does anyone know if a little water is ok without any problems? Oil looked ok, no signs of cracked . Boat stored in a non heated carport wrapped up. Really kicking myself , but hope it's ok. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. just keep in mind if the buoy shows 1.5ft waves, its really 3ft. that's the rise from sea level, not the trough of the wave. Always x2 and I always add 10mph to the wind when planning. South wind, small boat best bet stay shallower. Turn before it gets uncomfortable .

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    and Rick I have seen many occasions where someone is told their loved one is gone. Its a sickening feeling and does anger you , especially if it was avoidable .

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    I ran into a guy once years ago, prob around 30yrs old on Sodus. Said he is the first one on the ice every year and the last one off. Falls through at least once a year and fishes with a life jacket . He also stated that he is not a p***y and wont get blown off the lake in his 19ft starcraft bc he knows what hes doing. I remember thinking what an a**hat and he will be in the papers someday. Someone elses life was taken here by similar pride . That guy I met years ago was tempting his own fate not anyone elses ....guess what I am saying is take this as a lesson and I hope the same mistake doesn't happen again

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    exactly....never get too comfortable . I wont challenge it. Fishing in choppy water is a pia but if I have to question if my boat can take it safely , its not worth it. I look at it and think If I were to lose power, wrap wire in the prop etc could I be safe until help arrived. If I feel the answer is no, Im staying home. Have I fished in nasty holy crap weather? Yes but I have gotten more cautious especially if my 9yr old is with me. What happened is a gamble no one should make

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    Its unfortunate when things like this happen. It however makes everyone sit back and look at the big picture. We all double check our vessels , safety equip and the weather forecast before heading out. In the fire service when there is a line of duty death, we look at the situation in depth, no matter where it happened . Critique it not for judgment or finger pointing but as a learning experience for next time. I saw this Sunday strong south winds backing west . My game plan was to venture out to 300-400 and park there , however with a semi rookie crew that was planned to go I opted to keep my 21fter on the trailer and do yardwork and clean the boat (finding more spoons I bought and hid from the wife too lol) I was bummed but I have 2 little girls that depend on me , lets all just take it as a warning to double check our gear and be cautious. Prayers to the family . Tight lines......
