Mudbug Casualty Thread
So.. the thread no one wants to be in.
I lost an oil line and who knows what else. I haven't gotten the nerve yet to go any deeper than pulling the head.
jims 1300 was putting a cylinder and piston in when I was pulling out.
A couple skis sank apparently..

I saw a ski with a rope in the pump and the radar run and it would not come out. Also Abbot in an attempt to shed whight ran out of fule on his speed run. Now thats cutting it close.

I had a major carbon seal leak I think so had to call it an early day Saturday. I'm sure the bilge pump would have keep up but I wasn't taking a chance. Not to mention the cavitation was aweful. Had a great time though watching some fast ass skis!!!!
