Boats and piers don't mix


Recommended Posts

This happens every summer, sometimes more than once. Guys get in a hurry to get somewhere else before dawn and forget that there might just be a pier in the way, or they set their GPS waypoint inside the pierheads instead of outside. Either way, they're screwed. No fish is worth this trouble. BTW, that's the south Manistee pier on Lake Michigan.

So he might have to wait a wee while or the next hight tide to float her off ;)

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Ouch - I really hope that someone in that mess had really good insurance.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

Grangers law : anything i say will  turn out the opposite or not happen at all!

Life insurance? you wont enjoy a penny!

Then this one at Ludington. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is Newt's boat.

Yet another one bites the dust. A gorgeous Grady-White at Manistee a few days ago. Guess the radar was off.
