Yes we were on the loose alright ! LOL Back again this afternoon. We loaded up the boat, went down to Everglades City for lunch then stopped by Keewaydin for awhile. Lots happening as usual.
Call me after Xmas and well see if we can get you out on the water for a bit. 239 776 0481

Yep,

I just got the same report of a Predator and Fountian Race boat at Keywaddin yesterday. You all made my nephews day
He could not wait to tell me about it.

Question: Is spending 2 hrs polishing my exhaust tips getting too obsessive?

Hello John. I used to joke that my next boat I would just leave all white so I would go unnoticed wherever I go. With the agony I am going thru right now over paint scheme and colors for the new boat I'm thinking all white makes a lot of sense !

As for 2 hrs polishing exhaust tips, can't say other than I think it is cool that you care about your boat enuff to do that. I think the payoff will happen when you decide to sell. May not bring a much higher price but will sell long before the average boat.

But Bob, I thought the paint scheme for the new rig was already settled. I am sure I remember discussing it with you at Raymonds party.

Hey Bob,

Just to rule that thought out, When you drive around in a 50' Nor-tech, I don't think it matters what color it is, You are DEFINATELY going to be noticed.

As to my question, my wife kept coming outside and shaking her head at me yesterday. After I thought about it, it made me laugh. But I am sure I am not the only one of us with OCD as concerns our pride and joys. I have the next two weeks off of work and I don't get my motor back until Thursday or Friday so today I am in the engine compartment with a tooth brush Jack with the 38 cig flat deck is my inspiration. You could eat off of any surface in his bilge.
