    I have gotten a few rides so far this year on Biggus's small boat. Other then that a real quick ride on a Baja 240 and few rides on a couple boats out at LOTO but that seems like for ever ago now.

    I was skimming like a mad man this evening however and tomarrow I will get a little more done then the Fiance is off for the weekend so I hope to get a TON done

    Put your best foot forward!

    2 yrs my boat has not ran more than an hour

    Even though I boat every weekend this weekend will be the firing date of the new motor, otherwise I have been a boat whore to anyone wanting to take me for a ride.

    Since, I have lots of freinds who own boats it is has never really been an issue, but it is not your boat and you are not in control.

    Maybe in a couple of weeks will be my splash date.

    I bought my boat in August of 2000, switched to bigger cubed engines and went from TRS drives to Bravo Ones with extension boxes and didn't get it in the water until the end of July 2001 of which I put about 45 hours on it or so for the rest of 2001. I noticed I had water leaking in the bilge---found out I had a rotting tansom and stringers---so in 2002 had it all replaced, and moved the engines back 10 inches in the process and never got the boat out last year because of all the work being done except until mid-October to test maybe 2 hours of time tops. This year (2003), so far I have had the boat out 4 times totalling about 5 hours.

    Dang, I don't feel so bad about my measly 20 hours now. You know you only get so many summers. I hated to give one up. Been working way too much. Normally I take every Friday off through July & August, but just couldn't this year. But I've just about got the stuff for the Patriot Act wrapped up. I guess it's a pretty small sacrafice compared to what some have made though...

    Maybe this old POS isn't such a bad boat after all, it would be killing me if I had payments and couldn't use it.
