Ever found something in your bilge and wondered, mmmm I wonder where that goes? To add to the drama of it. Was it part of a toy that a kid dropped 20 years ago and I just found it, or a key part that will leave me stranded. So you wonder. And wonder.. It sits in your boat..In Case forever. Well, such is the case of “the Mystery Plastic Doohickey” on the Boat Buzz, and we thought it might be fun to ask the peanut gallery. And yes, we know of the new controversy regarding the term Peanut Gallery. We choose to use the reference from Howdy Doody. Anyway, back to a more simple world. Here is “Stovebolts” question on the Boat Buzz.
So quick Readers Digest Version of my past eve.
Went for a boat ride last night, parked in middle of lake. prop shaft slides out of coupling on motor, and panic ensues. We start to paddling, and finally a nice fella drags me in, and all is well. While looking for the keyway that is lying somewhere on the bottom, I notice this little plastic doohickey staring at me. I have never seen it before, so figuring out where this goes I have no idea.
I’m hoping someone here does.
