Sorry to hear you problems with you photos. Give Stu a call & I'm sure he will fix the pics. Who ever you spoke to must have been having a bad day. Although that is not a good way to treat a club member.

Exactly! why let GoodT get you down? Cars are cool but as stated above where can you run as fast as you want without legal troubles?

Anyways, good luck....you'll be back. maybe try a cruiser for awhile.

I have decided that boating is way too expensive for the fun I was getting out of it. I had to put things into persepective and this was the best choice for me. I have dealt with too many A-Holes in boating...(made some good friends also) GOODT was only a small part of the problem. You may recall the idiot that parked my Powerplay under a tree last year and the deck was stained.

When you compare the costs it was a no brainer for me....

Boat - $100K
1 tank of fuel - 225 gallons
Insurance - $2,500 yr
Maintenence - expensive x2 (twinns)

Cobra - $60K
1 tank of fuel 17 gallons (that's 13.25 fillups vs. the boat)
Insurance - $600yr
Maintence - not much...427 Roush motor has a 2 yr / 24K mile warranty and only costs $15K new!!!

You can see the cost difference is huge...I can also sell my truck ($780 payment) and my house ($2,100 payment) Life will be easier.

Buy a smaller less expensive boat that is still fun.
Maybe you could do both ?

Oh well.hat's meant to be is meant to be.

BTW: gas is a lot cheaper now. Doh.

Seriosuly though, good luck - looks like a sweet car.

Cars are fun...but there is nothing like ripping across the open ocean pounding waves...or going 100+ when the sun is setting and the water is like glass...Well to each his own I guess.
