I got one!!
Unprotected launch, truck is a stick shift. Right after I winched it up & attached the safety chai a big wind/wave rolled in & picked up the back of my truck & pulled it into the water. As it was rolling by I did a Superman thru the window, grabbed first & 4x4 at the same time, let out the clutch & mashed the gas as the water hit the back window. Flew up the ramp with hundreds of gallons of water pouring out from everywhere & my boat balancing on the right side. Quite embarrassed but happy not to be in the water, I spent the next hour an a half jacking the boat up & shoving it over & back on the trailer! No damage but View attachment 632389 My hair has been gray ever since. May 16 2020
Gotta stop by harbor freight and get a tongue extension. Glad you didn't submarine the truck.

Reminder for all you warm and cozy snugglers out there...The NWMI Fishing Club and The Fallen Outdoors will be hosting an ice fishing outing on Lake Skegemog this Saturday. Come on out, look for our signs. We will get you hooked up!!!

No cost, we have bait, food and gear for anyone that needs it including warm shanties.

Weather looks great! Light and variable (my 3 favorite words).

Come on out and meet a few of your boys. You miss them, I know you do. I do.

Lets go you Benzie County Boyz. Stop into Long Lake Grocery and get signed up! Good ice almost everywhere which takes me out of my boat this year...so you have the advantage now.
