Re: My new boat has arrived

I hope you put more foam in those seats. rumor has it you have been flying a wicked yellow boat around your lake!The neighbors are lovin your middle age crisis!!!

I am seriously thinking about an antique wood boat near me,has a tbird engine in it.I have to look for the ad.
Good luck with the boat! Mery christmas!How did your wife find that for you?

Yes,picked it up at Joey Impresscias shop. Very nice restoration,actually was John Sherlock's. Kind of interesting that we live on the lake here,a 353 with 600's and a 370SS and a couple other new boats in the boathouse since we are a new boat dealer and can use them anytime, but I get excited about a 42 year old boat like the one I bought new in 1963,boat $640,100 Merc,$995,trailer,$140. This weekend,weather permitting,I will cruise in the G-3/100 Merc,and smile all the way As I get older I look at things differently

Congrats! That's a beauty! I just love those old boats. My 1970 Donzi is like a time machine. No tabs, no trim, no buttons. Just a simple stick and a steering wheel. Driving it is like a breath of fresh air! Enjoy!
