    Yeah, my bet is he just forgot to put plug in, or tighten it good and it vibrated itself back out. Like someone else said, if I were bold enough to pull someone's plug, he wouldn't have found it to put back in.

    this was my first thought as well.

    anything for the younger set today to become instagram famous seems to be how some roll.

    Default Boat vandals

    My water story this summer . . .

    We rented a house on Norris with my friends last month. We headed in after an early morning wake set. The dock next to ours had some early 20yo peeps with a 21’ jet boat. The hatch is up and there are 3-4 of them looking around. They ask us if we could come over and take a look at their boat. I walk over with my buddy.

    Me: what’s going on?
    20yo: my battery is going dead

    As I look down and see water up to the top of the motor:
    Me: well, you got bigger issues than a dying battery.

    I grab my portable tsunami ballast pump and start pumping water out. After 10 mins I’m looking around and the water is not lowering as fast as it should

    Me: did you put the plug in?
    20yo: not sure, where would I look for that?

    So I jumped in and put the plug back in. Now the water is starting to go down. After a few mins I ask:

    Me: hey did you happen to notice your bilge pump going on last night when you were out on he boat?
    20yo: oh yea, we did notice the bilge pump constantly running when we were out and when docking the boat.

    Me: so what did you do?
    (here comes the kicker. . . )
    20yo: we turned it off

    We pulled the plugs for them, got the motor to turn over, then sent them off for an oil change.

    They were appreciative and bought us a case of beer and a bottle of bourbon. Nice kids, new to boats and a little over their heads.

    "They were appreciative and bought us a case of beer and a bottle of bourbon."

    Now that part was awesome of them!

    Did you guys sneak back over later and pull their drain plug so you could do it all again?

    Did you ask the 20yo what hitch his truck had and did his boat have thrusters?

    But seriously solid props for helping the kid despite his boat having no props and a hole in his hull.
