    My first B1

    Well my first b1 and complete build is finialy done!! After a 10 gallons of fuel to break it in and to get used to it. I was WFO and having a blast when the nozzle broke where the steering attaches. it went hard to the right and I went careening through a canoe. The canoe acting as a ramp I went airborne and landed ski and all right in the seat of a paddle boat........What a ride!!! nothing broken but a little pride! Now I'm addicted I can't get off the thing. It's going for paint Wed.

    ha i had the exact same thing happen to me on my 99xpl. I didn't use a canoe as a ramp but had the steering attachment break, and found my self heading for a sand bar. I couldn't turn left, luckily it was only right had turns back to the beach lol.

    I tried to turn left........nothing. So at that point I think I wet my self a little. I let off and jammed it WFO again to try and spin it out, it worked a little. I didn't hit my GP1200!! Secretly it was fun!! To bad there wasn't two old men at each end of the canoe fishing as I came barreling throught the middle of it!!

    Hell yea it was funny.....I didn't get hurt the canoe is busted up pretty good the paddle boat has some blue marks from the ride plate. Thats it.....Both the canoe and the paddle boats are derilicks that float around during storms so no harm done! Now if I had smashed into my GP it would not be so funny

    Whats with you? I had a mechanical failure ....no steering I went where I went no control and hit two junk vessels floating in the water. No one was hurt only me involved on a private lake. Under different circumstances if the two boats actually been owned by someone and occupied....Not so funny....but in my case I think It was pretty damn funny!

    Why? What did he do wrong? He's laughing about his misfortune, no one was hurt. Shit happens, some of us laugh at these situations instead of mulling over them.

    How about you lighten up. It's not like he killed someone.
