I launched out of Simmons Park once with the whole family (wife and three small kids) in tow on the maiden voyage of my 24ft boat. Thought it was dragging a little. Something didn't seem right. Moved the kids, opened the hatch and found the twin engines half under water. Slowed down (bad move) opened hatches and found water in bottom storage. With all the excitement of the new boat, I didn't lock the plugs. I quickly plugged the boat and limped back in. Kids were scared to go back out. This was 2 yrs ago but every member in the family checks all of the plugs in every boat that we go on now.I think we all have these stories....right of passage :excited001: . Point is, as dumb as you felt, there is always someone reaching for the title. I've been a world champ several times. :thumbsup: Glad it worked out.
