Three to Five Grand

Thats what it costs to fix a 425HP wakeboard boat that I drove into the rocks yesterday. Man that was an expensive 4 seconds. The rudder ripped off and the propeller looks like crumpled paper. I need a beer. Some of the bros on the lake gave me a tow and then helped me get it to a marina. Props to my new friends Joe and Tony and especially my life long friend Al. Joe once drove his Mastercraft into a swamp in the middle of the night and 25 feet onto dry land. He knew something was wrong when there were fir trees whipping by his head. They nearly had to heli-lift the boat out of the forest because no boat or truck could ever get into the swamp - finally got it out by building a wooden ramp and winching it out by hand. I bet you it cost more than three to five grand. I didn't feel so bad when I heard his story.
