okay. We WAITED to buy a boat until we could pay for it, so we didn’t have to go into debt. We bought a boat on Saturday. We really like the boat.
On Monday, FirstHusband hooked up the trailer lights, got the boat registered and insured and towed it over to the coast for dry storage. (Which is VERY cool! We call and say, “Hey, yo! We want to take our boat out today!” and they put it in the water for us by the time we get there! Woo Hoo! We also save on gas because instead of driving a Ford F250 with a 22 foot boat behind it, we get to drive a mini-van instead!) So, it’s all good.
FirstHusband drives back from the coast with an empty boat trailer, parks in front of our house and . . . the truck won’t come out of gear. It’s stuck in “Park” and it will NOT move. We had it towed this morning (thank you dear insurance company, for towing reimbursement).
Long story short? Anybody got a USED steering column for a 1996 Ford F250? One withOUT airbags? But preferably WITH tilt and cruise control? Seems we have a “special” steering column. A steering column we may not even be able to get NEW even if we wanted
to pay for one. Because our truck is so very old.
and “arg” again.
But. I’m looking at the bright side. We get to go out in the boat on Saturday because we don’t have to tow it over to the coast. It’s already there. And it will already be in the water. And I’m taking a fiction book.
gotta go. off to ebay motors, parts and accessories.
