What happens when you hear...Clunk Clunk?? B.O.A.T.T
Ok, I actually thought I'd get one year in with this boat and not another "T" on the ole B.O.A.T at before the last T (stands for "Ten"). I was heading out the river to go across the bay for a little lunch and just an enjoyable day. Been using the boat a ton the last 4 weeks or so and thought just a small trip and relax would be good. Not even out of the river, and something instantly didn't sound right on plane. I pulled her back, shut the stbd engine off first and the noise went away. I knew it wasn't good, so I didn't dare restart. Limped on one engine over to my favorite mechanic. He was ready with the sling when I got there (gotta love that customer service!!). Took a look and well, I'll be replacing the engine!! Sounds like a rod was thrown.
