the last blip of the throttle as you put it away....
I agree!

Vicki,
Ya know, running around in the "hot-rod" IS fun, but the best fun is when Demi and I take the SeaRay out at a fast idle and just putz around the lake with the tunes going and having a cocktail . See you kids in July.

Robert & Demi

Good one!!

I like all of the above. Boating for us is relaxation time. No cell phones ringing or Blackberrys beeping. One of my favorite things to do is a "fly-by" at when arriving at my favorite spot, although I get "the look" from my wife every time that I do it!!

No cell phones ringing?? you haven't boated with ChiTown Hustler

For me I guess you could say the best part of boating is the friends we have met and the weekends we get to spend with them.
Also the places we get to visit and the early mornings waking up on the boat knowing you are already where you want to be. I also like the fact that for a change Mr P takes over most of the cleaning responsibilities
