Re: bungs out

Post by fff1964 » Wed Apr 24, 2019 7:17 am

Years ago
Got a stessle edge tracker from Frenchies marine.
first boat those little stessles had four bungs.
But in at the army base at Larrakeyah ramp.
two bungs not done up took a little while to notice as had full floor in it :D
Turned on bilge while putting bung in.
no water coming out pump outlet ha ha ha ha :o :o
my mate had wired it up arse about and was sucking air. :banghead:
lucky it was above water line
left bungs out and took off and venturied most of the water out.

Couple of lessons learned there. :roll: :roll:

In the NT News ...

In that creek I'd be more worried about the bull sharks.

More risk of getting hepatitis in there than croc/shark attack...

Both good calls, beware the bacteria-loaded braid balls.
