What about the poor old chap last month that had his outboard sawn out of his transom to get the outboard. The boat of course sunk. The chap had the boat for 30 years or more, it is doubtful that he will get on the water again without a lot of help.

If it was down to me hands would be the second thing they would cut off! and I am not joking.
