    Default Interesting Use of a Sno-Cat

    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    Pardon me sir, but the beach is a no parking zone.
    Every day I beat my previous record of consecutive days I've stayed alive.

    I have seen dozens of cases where a boat missed those entrance jetties and hit the beach on
    the south side.

    Good Gwad, none know what and where the fog signal is?

    A few years back a blow-boat missed the entrance and a woman on board was sick.
    A helicopter was launched to get her off, but she was so fat that her weight and
    that of a 200 lb rescue Swimmer broke the D-ring of the hoist rig. 500lb breaking
    strength on those D-rings

    Those Sno-Cats are pretty amazing machines... I want one. That's an expensive toy, though.


    I did something similar to that a couple years ago in front of my cabin, though it wasn't because I was blindly hauling ass in the fog :




    My son and I were coming back from town, and I decided to park right in front of the cabin since the water was high. I chopped throttle, but the current caught my hull and started skewing me to the right and I would have hit that stump in the water... so I gave her another snort of throttle to correct my glide path, which added another 20' to my intended stopping point. We just slid up out of the water onto the sand there.

    I put a boat cushion between my boat and the big Suzuki 4 wheeler and pushed her back into the water.
