Cant be age, or just that ship happens. We are all to quick to find blame in stuff, when stuff just happens. We are in a passion of old stuff. Stuff that even when new wasn’t all that reliable. We all forget what it was like to adjust stuff all the time. back in the day, you better know the ins and outs of your boat, or car. No chips, no fancy electronics. So, who can we pick to blame for 60 year old used parts breaking?
I have looked into it. He was an engineer at Chris Craft back in the day. And even though he made stuff that has lasted through 60 years of use by idiots like me, when only designed to last 5. Even though he went the extra 55 years. He is still too blame, so I blame him. I blame the man who is why we all love our boats in a way. AW “Bill” MacKerer. Really Bill? Ugh. I mean why couldn’t you design and engineer something better? BTW, I am being sarcastic again.
