Kissimmee 911 a cry for help without involving the pro`s

Post by Limey Chris » Tue Feb 17, 2009 8:48 am

I finally got my wife to come hunt with me, so we loaded up the boat and dogs and went to Starvation Slough. The river is as low as I can, in my limited time on it , ever remember. When we got to my regular parking spot I got the boat jammed between the banks. In the process of trying to unstick it I managed to snap the stick off.

If anyone is local to the area that can meet me at Cromwell and give me a ride back to my boat I`d be happy to cover gas and any extras you may incur. I believe I can afro engineer the stick by sleeving it and some hose clamps, either that or I put an insert in it. I also need a push or pull to get off the bank. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: HELP

I can be reached at (727) 420 4218

Brother,
I don't recognize the points you reference by name so I guess you aren't real local to me.
Hopefully I am wrong. Can you elaborate where this is? I am able to take the time today to help if I can.
Likely someone else is closer, but then again maybe not. I'll help if I can, where is it?

Once again I`m overwhelmed by my family on here. Within minutes my phone stared ringing and someone stepped up and offered to help. Thank you SA and all the fine folk associated with it

Plum, bad as I hate to, I have to defend our buddy Wayne. I know he's not much to look at and you wouldn't take him home to meet Mama, but he will come through in a pinch.

If it wasn't for him (and ultimately Great Airboater Brad), me and the missus would have been in a bad spot one day around last xmas. I called him with the hope he'd call someone else (and it did work out that way) but he was already making preps to come get us on his own from over two hours away.

Uh huh I bet you passed on the cookies ... this is cntry remember LOL I was worried about the boat myself .. IF anyone finds themselves in a simular situation I would not suggest waiting till morning to call someone ... We love running at night so it is no big deal to come then besides we can sleep when we are dead and the night time makes for better rescue stories.

What can i say that ain`t been said over and over. It gladdens the heart and puts a spring in my step to know that a complete stranger will go out of his way to help me. Plum I`m honoured to call you friend. Thank you so much.





I still got cookies. Come to the darkside. ( I don`t reallt get the whole cookies thing, but I can pretend to be one of the cool internet icons) :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
