Fished out of Sabine yesterday. You know those days where everything goes wrong. This was one. Planned on running out to a wreck about 65 mile off. The north wind had some chop kicking up around 35 miles out so we detoured over to a rig to catch bait and let it lay down a little. When I pulled the throttles back I felt a thump and the port engine starts redlining. Shut it down and checked it out. Somehow managed to break off the propeller shaft. Prop went to the bottom. While we were tied off to the rig we did manage to catch a limit of snaps and a big smack 7-8 lbs. Started the slow ride in at 9 am. We were about 15 miles from the jetty and heard another boat calling the coast guard. They were dead in the water about 2 miles behind us. We responded and rigged a tow line. Now we have a 31' Fountain towing a 21' Contendor a a blistering 5 knots. Then the remaining engine keeps dieing due to fuel starvation. Had to keep pumping the bulb in the fuel line to keep it from dieing. Made it back to the dock at about 7 pm. Oh Well, Like Forrest Gump said,"S*** Happens". I did get a guy to look at the engine today and he said it seems ok, should have her back on the water at the end of the week. By the way the Contender guys were nice enough to offer to pay for our fuel and offered to buy a cold one.
