I had to really work for this one. Guess they didn't last as long as the black ones.

That is friggin hilarious! It looks like a 18 Sea Ray with a Black Max 135 ???. Guess it should have been a white Max. Kinda ashamed to admit it but it was the first boat I owned, I think a 1988, same trailer too and I paid $12,000 if my mind isn't shot yet. . With a Dol-Fin on the motor and me I was able to just touch 54 mph on Lake Erie.

My friend still owns the boat. I gave up after taking water over the bow too many times rounding Headlands Beach going back to Rutherfords.

Sea Ray marketed a line of economy boats called Seville. They had Mercury outboards and Alpha drive models, both were painted all white. I would say mid to late 80's. At least in the Chicago area.

Thanks Carl, I will have to try out engine trim instead of tabs on my Fountain 38TE this weekend and see how it works that way instead of tabs.

I thought that was who I saw on board! We tied up next to the "crane guy"'s other boat on Venetian night...it's a 70' Viking. They were really cool to us...I danced with his wife Donna in the "salon" of the Viking to "That's Amore." He had drag racing legend Roy Hill on board as well.

I thought you knew that. I lived in Mentor most of my life on Acacia Ave and on Heather Hill. Mentor High 1977. Got married and moved to Westlake, then could not take putting everything I owned away for half my life and moved to the Keys in 91 or so. Now its summer every day, cars, bikes, boats and women that wear clothes way too small.

I was just back in Ohio over Labor Day visiting my brother John (he owns Suntrol and Custom Tint and even he worked at Springbrook Gardens as a kid, small world indeed) who lives off Vrooman road. Rode motorcycles all weekend, awesome weather and had to stop by Headlands and the new to me rack store on the lake in Fairport, had a beer while fighting the bees.

It was a lot calmer than I remember!!

Can't tell you how many times I was asked by Martha "got your plug in" still a standing joke with my wife. Used to know Marty, Dicky Hersh, and was good friends with Craig Milmine and lots more who I am sure are all still at the Lagoons.

Sommer,

Yes that is them. I was actually on the phone with their captain this morning as they are trying to get their dock partner to buy the three engine and he now wants a four engine. Donna's husband is a drag racer too.

That is one of the things I really like here, no flies, haven't seen a bee in 10 years, and no spiders all over the boats, house, dock and so on. Of course I get mosquitos from time to time but I will take the trade.

I am drawing a complete blank on HTP ???

See you in Key West. I am going on the Tuesday run with my 38 Cig Pure Pressure. I am also trying to line up a quad Deep Impact to bring if I can get one and a slip. See you soon.
