7/6 - DON'T DO THIS!!!

HERE I AM SITTING AT THE BOAT RAMP AFTER TAKING SOME KIDS FISHING. TALKING TO A FRIEND....



















(TWO - 8 YEAR OLD TWINS)







































THEY CAUGHT A BUCKET LOAD OF CROAKERS, AND SOME KITTY-KATS, AND WORKED THEIR GRANDPA AND ME HARD!


WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY BUDDY DAVE AND I AT THE DOCK SAW A BIG UGLY GHETTO CRUISER WASTE OF FIBERGLASS BOAT GO BY THROWING A 4 FOOT WAKE!!  IT YANKED MY BOAT TIED TO THE DOCK ALL OVER THE PLACE.

DAVE AND I LOOKED BACK, AND THERE'S A LITTLE FLAT BACK CANOE STYLE BOAT CALLED A GHENOE WITH 3 ADULTS IN IT.
IT HAS A TROLLING MOTOR ON THE BOW, A LITTLE MERCURY ON THE STERN AND YES 3 ADULTS IN IT!!

THEY HIT THOSE GIANT GHETTO CRUISER WAKES, ONCE, TWICE AND THE THIRD ONE HAS IT DIVE UNDER LIKE A SUBMARINE!.....IT SINKS AND FLIPS OVER IN THE RIVER JUST OUTSIDE THE BOAT RAMP DOCKS.

A LOCAL CRABBER (JAMES) COMING TO THE DOCK SEE'S THIS TOO AND HE RUNS OVER, PLUCKS ALL THREE ADULTS FROM THE WATER AND THEN DAVE AND I RUN OVER TO THEM IN MY BOAT.  THEY CHASE THE GHETTO CRUISER, (RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR WAKE!!!) AND SEE IF THEY CAN STOP THE IDIOT. DAVE AND I TIE THE GHENOE OFF TO MY BOAT, AND PICK UP STUFF OFF THE SURFACE FLOATING, AND TOW IT BACK TO THE BOAT RAMP.








































DON'T BELIEVE THEY EVER STOPPED THE GHETTO CRUISER RESPONSIBLE. AND DAVE AND I PULLED THE UPSIDE DOWN GHENOE BACK TO THEM WAITING AT THE DOCK.



















































FLIPPING IT UPRIGHT AND BAILING THE WATER OUT.
TROLLING MOTOR, BATTERIES, DEPTH FINDER, AND 9.9 MERCURY OUTBOARD RUINED!!!




















THEY WERE 100% OVER LOADED!!!!!  DON'T BELONG IN THE ST. JOHNS RIVER, THIS STYLE BOAT BELONGS WAY BACK IN SOME CREEK. 

DEFINITELY, NOT A SMART DECISION!
