So you’re in a rush to get fishing. The alarm goes off. You down breakfast, then run out to the garage, hook the boat to the truck. Dig out all the rods, locate the tackle boxes, get the net, grab the anchor, pack a lunch, find the suntan lotion, find you lucky hat, call your buddy, get gas, fill up the cooler with ice, buy drinks, and then head to the ramp. Finally you’re ready to launch right? Did you remember the plug?????
At the ramp today I saw it happen again. Believe me it goes on all over the place. Folks launching their boats without putting in the drain plug. Ouch. Its not only embarrassing, its down-right dangerous.
This time it was no big deal. A few tense moments, but everybody is fine. But don’t forget the damn plug!
