Now iam just embarrassed
Bud, nothing what so ever to feel embarrassed.
I grew up on small, dangerous bars back home, they were dangerous things, with sand bars changing consistantly.
So I guess, I could say, for near 20 years, every launch involve these bar crossings. It was a done thing back home, to go out with someone. Sometimes when u head in after a day out, there were boaters, new to the area waiting, which you immediately unloaded your boat then take them out for a bar crossing, so they could navigate safely, it was the done thing you did.
Hey, when I got back into fishing a few years back here, I had to ask for help on a drive on trailer !!! never ever done it before after 30 plus years boat ownership................
