    Well that is an awsome fish & she should be proud forever. I read the article & had the same thought how is she intering it in a derby tournament or any other sanctioned sportsman event. I dont belive there is a debate here she did not catch the fish on her own it may or may not fit into the rules of the derby. Thats for the officals to determine & the parents should have read the rules & made there own determination that the fish was legal to enter. If they made the wrong choice then the officials have a responisibility to enforce the rules. We all know snagging fish is wrong as is poching but people do it I chose not to as I am a sportsman. I thank the lord everyday I dont have to enforce the rules. I just make sure I can sleep at night so I follow the rules & teach my children to folow the rules since right & wrong starts at home.
  11. [A name=Kingair' date='Nov 19 2009, 11:56 PM' post='25293] Found this on other site "The clamp bracket did not break......... and it happened at 40 MPH in calm waters..... we hauled it out and supported the A until the guys from Midnight came to take it away...... The motor was ok,,,,, no water ingestion, infact there was no visible damage. It did damage the motor next to it with it's prop... took a chunck out of the cav plate. The motor was through bolted to a plate to get it higher and the plate had studs welded to it to attach it to the transom. there were no through bolts directly holding the motor onto the transom. The studs sheared right at the plate and the motor was left dangling off one remaining stud and the tie-bar. "
