1/ pooter chair breaks & I get injured.

2/ perfect day for sailing load up and head to lake, level about 220mm lower than last time, put my foot on green algae stuff on the concrete as I was launching Jo's Tug my feet disappear from under me, on my way down to the concrete I heard a crunch as tug boat landed and bounced into the water, then I hit the concrete and slid into lake Wendouree for an unplanned swim it reminded me of a "70"s Normie Rowe song shaking all over just change shaking to aching all over lol and that's me.

3/ Then Jo's scooter batteries go flat on way home had to ring RACV for a taxi ride

Hopefully this ends the bad run.

Jo say's I'm past model boating and wants me to find something else lol She tends to drop hobbies that get hard lol

I'm already thinking of modifying the trailer with rails and carriage to launch our models I think 6' long 12" width on the rails and some plastic wheels on the trolley, or I should get a move on with the Air boats and let them scoot over the gravel and down the concrete embankment thereby removing my proximity to launch dangers.

Damien,

Sounds like you should have stayed in bed today. Hope you survived uninjured and that the boat is not too badly damaged??

Thanks mates right bum cheek I think it was pinched by my spine brace when I landed right wrist, elbow and shoulder sore thankfully no permanent damage.

As for the Lady Jo Seaport tug she was super lucky the mast was shaken loose from the bridge roof and just grazed some paint off the styrene stabiliser fins seen in pic.
