There are always keyboard cowboys, Google Experts and bull ****ters no matter what type of forum you play on. After a while, you know who is full of **** and who has the experience to back up the talk.

I went boatless for three seasons and luckily had several friends invite me along for diferent runs and gatherings. I am back in a boat (thank god) and they all know I have a seat for them any time they can join the wife and I.

However my heros are the guys that love this shyt enough to wrench and struggle all year to take a $20,000 ten minute boat ride, blow an engine, say screw it, get drunk with your buddys for one night, then head back to the shop to pay his dues for another ten minute boat ride. But hell 10mins at 70-80-90-100 is better than a year at cruiser speed!


why did you have to drag me into this????

I could buy a few different boats right now but I am holding out for what I want, and paying cash for a title from a BUILDER.
Come on Cash........ Give me a chance buddy

I think there are two very distinct groups here.

First is the true boatless guru: He would be the guy who has had many boats in the past, some sort of connection either making, selling, and or racing boats and just happens to not have a boat at this time.

Second is the wannabe boatless guru: He would be the one who claims to have all the history and knowledge but never owned (or barely owned) an offshore go-fast boat and never had any direct connection with building, selling or racing.

Okay Charlie, you, and a select few others(Woods) would get a shot. In fact, I gave Woods $1 awhile back for a future purchase.

Hope all is well buddy.

Not a "guru" but I did own a 24' Carlson trimaran. It was stolen in Jan. 2006. I am currently boatless.
