Complacency kills props.
We were running out on a big minus tide today and I was explaining to one of the crew how important it was to run the red line as the green line is shallow.
About that time I realized the green can was gone (kind of important buoy) and I was running right on the green line, following the boat in front of us.
A second or two later a prop hit bottom, so I shut down as I did not want to damage the props.
Luckily, we got help right away.
Krai (the guy who catches our bait) pulled us into deeper water with his seiner boat, but the damage was done.
We ran her up and the there was a vibration that I was not willing to chance offshore.
This would really suck if we did not have a spare set of props.
If nothing else is damaged, then we should be up and running Wednesday.
Let's hope the fish can wait.
