Well todfay sucked and the weatherman LIED
Got a crew together to go fish for gags before teh season closed. Had to wait till 7:45 to launch due to extremely low tide. Ran to 20' bait spot and halfway there it got real snotty, Weatherman predicted less than 10 knots all morning and seas less than 1' well it was blowing 15 and seas were 2'-3' in a short chop with the wind coming in just the wrong direction, but we suffered out to the bait spot and started to catch them quickly. Then disaster struck. One of the sabiki's got caught in the prop. Try as we did, just could not get it unwrapped. I wasn't about to put a man in the water in the cold and sea conditions we were in. I even lost a deck brush in the process. Ended up raising the engine and limping back to the ramp on #2. At home, found the entire sabiki as well as the sinker behind the prop and rear washer. I guess it's better to blow off a snotty day than have to replace a seal.
