Met Joe at the PRA in Fort Myers this past May. Seemed like a nice enough guy to me. His wife was very nice and their daughter full of smiles.

It's a sign of the times, man, everyone is so easily offended these days over the smallest little thing. Whatever.

Joe's a good guy, and so Is Scott, not to mention what an incredible boat!


Hey Jason, long time no see, how the hell are you?

He is animated, young, and pretty excited about horsepower so I can see how he might be taken the wrong way.
Thanks Donna, I was just about to say the same thing. We enjoyed talking to those guys at lunch in Ft . Meyers. Joe said the boat would go 160. Looks like he was being conservative. I like the way, when viewed from behind, the scoops look like skulls. Goes with the pirate theme. Ian

I think my favorite part of the boat is on the cabin door it says "surrender the booty," if I'm reading it right anyways.

Stabbin Cabbin would have gone with the pirate theme as well though.

We ran into the loose cannon guys at a Perkins restaurant on the way out of town on Monday after the shootout.
We ended up sitting at the table right next to them and talked and joked around a bit before they left.
Seemed to be pretty down to earth guys if you ask me.
I thought about asking them if they had any t shirts left but I always feel kind of strange about asking people for things.
Since it sounds like they have some, I would be more than happy to buy a couple.

"Surrender The Booty"
