Default Things that remind you of your boat, or boating.

When I flew to Chicago to test drive my 368 Skater, I couldn't get there fast enough. I did the phenomenal test drive on what I would call a creek with Bruce Bullock and the now former owner. A lot of adrenaline pumping when you pass logs the size of telephone poles at 140. Nevertheless, I fell in love with the boat the minute I saw her in person, and had to have it.

The Flight Number on the way home after putting down the deposit was Flight Number "368", so that always cracked me up. I mean, what a freaking coincidence, right??? Meant to be as ever!

Back here in Tulsa I hit a McDonalds for breakfast every morning for my Egg McMuffin, Hash Brown, & Dr. Pepper. The price: $3.68, and yes it makes me wish I was pounding the sticks at that very moment.

Anyone else have an everyday number or experiece that reminds them of being on the water. I've got all kinds of them.

My number is 22 but it has nothing to do with boating. I was married on the 22, started my job on the 22nd, both kids were born on the 22nd, was divorced on 12/10 (adds up to 22) and we walked out of the courtroom at 2:22 .... oh and my car is limited edition ... there are 2,222 of them made...

I have been married 4 times

the significance to this number is that

1) I should have thought it over be 4 i did it 4 times
2) I am having a hard time 4getting i was that stupid
3) I often ask my self "what 4" when thinking of why I married each one
4) It is unique cause they are all the 4mer Mrs Blondin
5) I am now married 4 ever

How does this all relate to boating ??????

If I hadn't ben married so many times i could have had a boat 4 a lot longer than I had any of them
