The plan was to haul the boat to clean the hull for the beer can races that night. Unfortunatley, things went south when the boat owner mistakenly attached the lifting sling to the engine drive shaft, rather than the adjacent deadeye that is in the keel for lifting. Ripping out the engine is messy business, and this incident is further evidence that despite the lifting deadeye and the engine shaft being adjacent to each other, close still only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.  [Scuttlebutt]
