Can't count how many weekends we did that last year because of our weather out here....and we all got very happy. If the gas prices keep it up this year we may have to spend some time on the docks.

Nah Vick - we won't spend more time on the dock...we'll just have to "boatpool." Like one weekend, you guys and BobZ could drive us all around in the Fountains, the next weekend, Michelle and I and Shags will take everyone in the Powerquests, then Mark and Jimmy can take us in the Cigs...and maybe for a fourth weekend Roger's Sonic and Tony's Apache...and I'm on a roll, 'cause the fifth weekend we could run Mike, Mike, Don and Billy's Formulas...and so on and so forth. Minimal gas $, maximum fun!

The best part of boating is when your boat is sold

Fun for me is traveling all over the country and staying in the same Hotel as 50 of your buddies and beating the crap out of my boat on Sundays

Oh, and setting speed records

the crackle of a big block early in the morning....

sitting at the bar watching the boats go by....

the scream of several big blocks in the afternoon....

running down the water and giving a wave to buddy as you pass him....

the sound of the water patrol testing your exhaust....

the bar b.s. sessions after boating all day......

the last blip of the throttle as you put it away....
