Cool Re: What did you do before you got a boat?

I raced off road bikes... Enduro and Hare Scrambles...Mostly in the ECEA (PA, NJ, NY, DE)... Got hooked- then went to work for a manufacturer in the industry (Husqvarna)...

I grew up with a Donzi in the family...
Eventually bought my own boat...ran it alot...Got hooked...then went to work for a manufacturer in the industry (Cigarette)...


So I wonder what's after boats????

Happily married to my first wife.

Now I'm on wife # 2 and boat # 2.

About to split with wife # 2 but will still have the boat. Priorities you know...

Like Sharkey, I used to do the BMX thing...at some of the same tracks, in fact....I quit racing, and just rode quarter and half pipes for a while. Got my drivers license, and went thru a slew of porsche 914s and 911s. I used to autocross my current 911 (the 911 in mcgary911), and do a lot of track events in places like pocono, lime rock, summit point, mid ohio, watkins glen, etc...i hit all of those tracks after i got fired from a talk radio job one may. I had a 3 month non-compete, so they essentially paid me not to work. First summer vacation i had had in years.....that allowed me to hit all of those tracks. Lately ive been too busy for all of that......havent even gotten the boat wet yet

Put me in this category... mainly hare scrambles and enduros. At 6'-4", I'm too tall to get my center of gravity low enuf to be any good at motocross. Had many great days in the foothills of north Georgia before the bulldozers got there.

I was born on a boat on the Thornapple river in Grand Rapids. The day after I was born we were back on the boat and I was an observer for my Dad as he waterskied The week after i got my Drivers License I bought a boat. It was a 17ft Starcraft (fiberglass) with a 115 Evenrude. We had a Slickcraft SS165 on the river. It was the fastest boat on the river until the Glastron Jet Boats hit the scene. We have always had a Sailboat on Lake MI in fact my parents are in the Med in Tunisia and have been sailing around the world for 6 years now. Boating is in my blood so thick that I can say that in 42 years I have never not had a boat or been on a boat. I also ride dirt bikes and snowmobiles in the off season.

I raced MX in Clayton, Ga. in the summers of '82-'83. I'm probably older than you, but the tracks might be the same.
