also the scene with the boat in it was filmed on Lake Wylie just south of Charlotte . I always wondered why they did not do it on Norman where Rick's house is I do know Tom Cruise stayed at Rick's lake house a lot when they were doing the movie.

I guess Richmond probably kept his boat in South Florida where he also had a residence.
His parents had a condo in the same building as my grandparents in Deerfield Beach.... Whenever Tim was around his motorhome would be parked at the building. Used to see him when we visited, lunch at the Whale's Rib was always a blast.. Not sure if they are still there, but there used to be all kinds of pictures and stuff at the Whale's Rib after he passed away.
Cash, are they still there???

middle of the movie after the big crash and all that hospital jazz but before he tells rowdy that he can fix his head with a baseball bat!
