Boat damage from stumps?

8:55 am CST, Feb 26, 2012 | By Pete Robbins

Takahiro Omori is in Sullivan's as well. He pulled up his trolling motor a minute ago and is grinding his way through the stumps. So are we -- in fact we've already gotten stuck. Chris powered us off the stump after a minute but it made me wonder two things:

  1. How much boat damage has been done this week?
  2. If you think you have a winning bag, how much time do you leave to get back?

They'll have to account for the lock, potential of mechanical mishaps and the chance of getting high-centered on a stump and left to watch the competition running back freely.
