What happens when a Van run’s into your outboard on the way to the Ramp?

The van gets damaged! This fella ran up the bum of my boat while I was driving thru Cottesloe on Saturday arvo. I had horrific visions when getting out to inspect the damage, but luckily enough, the outboard copped a couple scratches on the keel and ripped a couple holes in my fluoro Prop bag!

Van not so lucky however!

Bluddy lucky there mate! looks like you could have stuffed the gear box if he had hit it any harder. Did you give it a run to make sure there was no damage?

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

Yea, straight to the ramp and ran it, no vibrations. I have noted a very slight bend in the lower keel, doesn't seem to affect the handling of the boat at all, even at pace.

I think he stopped about 20cm not short enough, so a simple pucture wound rather than huge impact - got me worried though, the boats only 1 birthday!

Cheers Jason

I can tell you all now,there was deathly silence in the car before we went to investigate the damage. Terrible feeling in my guts.
