    Gotta be kidding me...

    I hit the ramp at 7am this morning to do some testing on a few new parts. On my warmup run my ski bogs down and starts spewing mud out of the pissers. Great. I work my way out and wait for the water to turn clear.

    Hit the throttle - nothing. Won't do more than 5 mph or it shudders violently. So, I idle back to the ramp (about a mile away), put it on the trailer, and get underneath to find...

    Three f*cking clams stuck in my intake grate! Big ones! Who ever heard of Texas clams??!!!

    Prop is totally screwed, and the stator veins are chewed up. I'm doing my best to deplete the clam community for the next 6 months. Clam chowder, clam soup, clam sandwich....
