Taking your brand new boat out and killing two people in a widely publicized poker run and blaming others to me should be the worst....


or having someone say, "Let Stecz drive"... serious on the first joking on the second...

The first time we put the 460 Sea Ray in the water, after the overhaul. I went to fire it up. Twin 6V92 Detroit's. Come to find out the mechanics reversed the drive cables and the fuel cables. The boat fired right up at half throttle and in reverse. Thank God we had it tied good

Cruising around 40 or so, we passed a water cop (25mph zone but rarely inforced) . About 10 seconds later he hit the throttles & we took off. About 10 minutes later, I heard something funny. I looked back & saw a helicopter approaching and a sea of blue flashing lights on the water. After getting hauled down to the marine cop dock & nearly getting thrown in jail for conspiracy to smuggle drugs and initiating a police chase charge, the guy looked at me & asked with horror "does this happen every time you go out on one of these boats?"
He had flown down from NJ for the sea trial. He passed on the deal LOL
It turned out I knew one of the cops that showed up later. He snuck up on my boat many years ago, late one night thinking the two females & I might be doing drugs. He was a little embarassed when he stormed into the cabin!!!!!!!!
We had a good laugh & couldn't believe what a small world it is. He told the story to all the other cops that were there & everyone had a laugh. They finally let me & the non buyer go free
