You are correct. Spent a lot of time with Bill Leslie and the girls. The previous boat had 900 Innovations and owned by Fred Hope, Fred drive, I throttled and Helen was navigator. We ran the boat along with the girls that ran the Larry Smith that summer doing all the poker runs. Great time of my life and a lot of great memories.

I could see how that could happen. My body was sore on monday after spending the weekend going in and out of the bolsters. Especially add a little alcohol to the mix... These bolsters once in allow for no movement.

Fred Hope is one of the nicest guys in the world and when he tells that story after a few wobbly pops we all pizz ourselves laughing.

Apparently they had just finished a run and were at the dock. Everybody else hopped out of the boat. Freddie had to get someones attention to hop back in and go around behind him and pull up his suit.

When he tells it you fall over howling.

One of the stories that comes from the camaraderie of all this boating. Not every good story has to have a nipple in it.

[B]Hello Jay. Myself along with a great friend who has since passed on hauled Fred and Helens Scarab to them after they purchased it[. Part of the deal was that we got to ride with them in the Poker run. I t was in Ganonaque. I`m sure I spelled that wrong. Fred and Helen are two of the nicest people I`ve ever met. If you are still in touch with them Lupe said HI and Dennis died in 99. Thanks/B]
