    Default Boating - Pull your drain plug

    If you didn't know, pulling your drain plug is mandatory within Alberta when transporting boats:

    and should be noted that last year they were giving people a warning for this, and this year they will be fining for it (I spoke to the invasives person who indicated that they're not giving anyone anymore warnings). Particularly important with Whirling Disease in AB.

    I have about a 4 year streak of launching the boat without the plug in going right now.

    Its a nice rush to get to the hoist and crank it out of the water haha

    With all the rain we had last year, I must have launched mine at least a half dozen times without the plug... its definitely a rush lol

    I have checks in place every time I launch. Cover off. Plug in. Kicker up. Outboard lock off. Every time.

    My pops left the plug out once. I guess that's why I'm so careful. It scared me as a kid to know our boat was sinking.
