Wow, this past two weeks we have all gotten out there for sure. How do I know, cause many of you have motored out, and been towed in. And that’s okay. It’s all part of it. I speak with Dave VanNess daily and he is averaging over 90 calls a day of people needing advice over the phone.
Same goes for many of our sponsors, and non sponsors. People need information, and many times its a simple issue, but because we life in a time of more reliability in our machines, we have all become a bit lost. There is a reason our boats and cars back in the day came with tool kits and owners manuals read like work books. SHIP HAPPENS.
So what to do when Ship Happens. Well, the way I see it, you are at an emotional fork in the road. You can curse, complain, find someone to blame, and go on a rant. Or laugh, and embrace it. It is what it is, and no frustration or anger is going to change anything, and in fact, laughing at it, can calm the crew, and you may just find that the wire on the coil just needs to be reattached. Because you were calm.
Your crew will always take your lead. If you are having fun with it, they will as well, and you may find, that being towed in is fun. And even more fun when you are doing the towing in.
Send in your Tow shots! Okay, wait, I DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOUR TOWS! no one wants to see your old gnarly spent to much time in wet shoe tows! BOATS Yes, Feet No.. Ya, 12 years of doing this has of course taught me many lessons. And of course this is some sort of invite. UGH! Hope you all are having a fun weekend. And remember, It isnt really fun until someone gets towed in!
