What happened to me Sergio was that I NEVER tow my dingy. I forgot about the darn thing being pulled there and then I DID put it in reverse. I learned a few things:
1. A man CANNOT simply use a 3' rubber hose to breath with under water. It doesn't
work because of water pressure
2. It takes a LOT of time and effort to cut a wedged and stuck line out of prop.
3. The stuck line can kill the engine at the most inopportune time.
4. It is a bit spooky spending time cutting line out of a prop, under a boat, in a
river.
5. And lastly, I look darn rugged and tough with a knife in my mouth.
