Friends and money- if you ever involve them together be prepared to lose one of them...

Good luck!
It is rare for that to work out. However, we should be good. We've been friends a long time and dealt in money before. Glad to see you back, Mark!

REAL boaters take care of boaters; not freeload or rip them off on parts. Boaters get screwed enough- buying a boat, selling a boat, buying fuel, insurance- why we do it to each other so much is beyond me...

Hey Mark....You are a good man and you're welcome to come on my boat anytime!!!

LOL.. You don't "gotta" pay.. but you can absorb anything you want.
The Senorita is ready. Running good. Working on breaking that hard to reach 90MPH mark. Got 87 so far. This thing goes through anything. At Sarasota.. we were the last one out of the docks. 6 or 7th at Lunch stop. I pushed it a bit and had no problems. Except the white knuckles of my "passangers"

C'mon down Mark.. Destin ???

Yep, This is what we are doing this year also, unless we just go across the lake. I think this year I am not only down on the amount of gas I have used year to date, but I am way down on $ spent on gas year to date also. Year is not over yet so we will see come the end of the year.

Don't bet on it. This picture was taken last weekend at LOTO.
