Mark..... I figured out who you were talkin about. That F'n azzhole is just a poor excuse for a human being!!! PERIOD. He's a pathetic low life big time loser, and all he wants to do, is drag anyone he can down lower than he feels.
We've talked about this, and you know where I'm comin from. Don't let this J/O mentally beat you up. He's just jealous of you cause you are everything that he ever wanted to be, and NEVER will.

If he was so glad to be out of boating, then he would'nt be suckin up to the last 2 people that will talk to him that still have a boat in the harbor!!! You see how he operates, he's so full of lies and deciet, he can't stand to see anyone lead a happy life. The world would be a much better place without him. (and THAT'S my next mission)

You can't get out of boating....................You still owe me a ride.

It's a crazy sport that we are into. It is a shame it has to be so expensive. It's a good thing it's so much fun!!!!! You are going to have a great summer this year.

Mark,
You have to go to LOTO on Memorial weekend. A great way to start off the season. It may be a Quasi- club event.

Welcome back...it is depressing right now, start of winter extra cold, spring seems so far away. Good therapy to talk boating here, kills some down time. Hang in there and plan for spring.

Its always something, Drives, Noise, Too long...need a permit to tow down the local streets of the Marina, Insurance, Storage, and a big etc....$
Not to mention Beak bashing.
I've spent well over $100K on her cause its a hobby and my personal touches I wanted.
Everything that could have happen, did and Im gun shy now.
I have 2 year old twins now, that demand much of my wife and I.
I guess I need a pep talk.
Dude, Stay in! After all, your handle "Back4 More" says it all!! This offshore stuff is a nasty addiction!! I think worse than any drug!!! I Freely admit I am one stupid MOFO when it comes to buying boats and putting money into them, especially considering a short boating season in northern Michigan!! Good luck and Happy Holidays! Wrink
